Civilization VI

Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

The latest expansion for Civ6, Rise and Fall, has been released. The expansion adds 9 civs and new game mechanics. One of the new features is the ability to use governors. They come with their own unique promotions that provide helpful abilities. They can be established in your own cities, or in a city-state.

Firaxis released the trailer for it's upcoming turn based strategy mega franchise Civilization VI. Voiced by Sean Bean this trailer shows off a look at the best parts of history and teases some of the new game. It's light on details and heavy on fluff and if film history is our guide somewhere in this game Sean Bean will die. Firaxis has stated that new features are coming to the game, but again nothing terribly concrete right now.

"Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time."
