2K has announced Sid Meier’s Civilization VI will release on PC on October 21, 2016.
Civilization VI promises to offer new ways for players to engage with the world around them. A player’s empire will now spread across the map as each city spans multiple tiles, allowing players to custom build their cities in order to take full advantage of the local terrain. The title will also feature a dynamic diplomacy system, which will allow interactions between other civilizations to change over the course of the game.
Players can expect active research to unlock boosts that will advance your civilization’s progress through history, which can be done by simply allowing your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures. If you stumble onto an aggressive culture, you’ll be able to eradicate them easily as Civ VI now supports combined arms. Players can now add support units to other units, allowing anti-tank support to be embedded with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. In fact, similar units can also be combined to form a more powerful Corps unit.
Civilization VI is setting out to be a Civ game for all players as it’ll provide veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization, while new tutorial systems have been designed to introduce new players to the underlying concepts of the Civilization series. Once everyone is up to speed, players can get together and enjoy an enhanced multiplayer experience as co-op will now be supported, although the more traditional multiplayer modes will still be intact.
Civilization VI is scheduled to release on PC on October 21, 2016.
