Here's everything you need to know about Civilization VI

Okay, so as you'll note from the above trailer - we don't actually know what Civilization VI will look like in-motion.


But we do have some screenshots of the latest instalment of Sid Meier's hugely popular (and weekend-consuming) strategy series, which is now 25 years old.  

Set to launch on 21 October, have a scroll through the gallery to find out how you'll be taking over the world in a whole new game. 

Your empires will be bigger

In this game, each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.

Even more research

You'll be able to unlock 'boosts' that speed your civilization’s progress through history. 

Diplomacy has also been tweaked, with interactions with other civilizations changing over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.

Support units can now also be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.

The multiplayer will be more accessible

In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, you'll be able to cooperate and compete with mates in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session. So no more emergency doctor's notes to excuse your absence come Monday.
