What is Civilization 6?
Civilization 6 is a turn-based strategy game where players start with a primitive society that they must build into a global superpower. Players are given freedom in how they obtain this goal, whether it’s through unmatched military might or by developing the most technologically advanced civilization possible. To gather the resources necessary for their civilizations to thrive, players will have to explore the world map, expand their society into new territories, exploit AI and human-controlled opponents, and exterminate other civilizations that become threats.
Civilization 6 retains the 4X strategy gameplay formula of previous games in the series, but also introduces new features. It gives players more options when constructing cities, and enhances the role of terrain, meaning players have to think carefully about where they build on the world map. Other new features include the Civics tree, which makes the Cultural path to victory more viable than it was in the past, as well as smarter enemy AI with secret goals that have to be uncovered over the course of the game. Combine the smarter AI with the addition of random engagements, and Civilization 6 offers some of the most challenging and unpredictable gameplay in the series to date.
