Civilization VI has been formally announced and will head to the PC October 21, 2016. As the next entry in the storied Civilization franchise, Civilization VI will give players all new ways to interact with their world, allowing them to expand their empire across the map. Like other Civilization games, players will get to advance their culture and compete against history’s greatest leaders.
Some features highlighted by 2K and Firaxis include expanded empires, active research, dynamic diplomacy, combined arms, enhanced multiplayer and new tutorial systems that will ease new players into the game if they’ve previously never experienced Civilization.
Civilization VI is already available for pre-order on Steam for $59.99. There is also a Digital Deluxe version for $79.99 that includes the full base game, the 25th Anniversary Digital Soundtrack and access to four post-launch DLC packs that will add new maps, scenarios, civilizations and leaders for a bundled discount.
