2K and Firaxis release behind-closed-doors presentation of Civilization 6 from E3

Narrated by Sean Bean, whose narrator character may or may not die before the trailer ends.


One of the benefits of attending E3 is getting to see special presentations meant only for you and fellow attendees. You're special, but we were more special.

But E3 is over and done with until next year, so Firaxis and 2K have shared their Civilization 6 video with the world. It's narrated by Sean Bean of Game of Thrones and Hollywood fame. Will his character die in the trailer? We know because we saw it first. Now, it's your turn.

Once you've feasted your eyes on the video, check out our hands-on preview from E3. You know, that event we attended, but you didn't? Yeah, that's the one.
