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."

Are you interested in another Civilization game and perhaps more interestingly why do you think Sean Bean dies in his movies more than most actors? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

We will be old and gray, with young whippersnappers abound, while we rot away in a wheelchair, and Civ 25 will be released. It'll never stop.

Also yeah, Civ V is pretty great. This will do super well.

I assume Sean Bean voices every major historical figure that had a famous death.

Can't wait for Sean Bean's Lincoln movie.

The updates to the mechanics that they've mentioned so far sound interesting, and one in particular - unit embedding - long overdue. Gone are they days of "one unit per tile." Now you won't have to dance around settlers as they are mobilized in unprotected territory. They can simply hitch a ride with an offensive or defensive unit, and get the protection they've always deserved.

Dynamic diplomacy sounds really interesting, too. Diplomacy tactics will be as primitive as your civilization is, with more advanced strategies opening up as you advance through the ages. Neat! Also curious about that enhanced multiplayer. Single session scenarios, both competitive and cooperative. The screenshots remind me more of what they were doing with Civ Revolution for the consoles. I hope they don't drift back too far in that direction.
