Civilization VI release date announced

Posted on May 12, 2016

The next installment of hit turn-based strategy game Sid Meier’s Civilization has a confirmed landing date of October  21st 2016.

True to format, Civilization VI will allow you to play as the leader of a conquering civilization from the Stone Age all the way to the information Age.

Early screenshots seem to suggest that things will broadly take off from where Civilization V ended: probably a good move, considering that it sold over 8 million units over its lifespan.

Despite this, 2K Games alongside developer Firaxis have promised that there will be plenty of newness for long-time fans, such as physically expanding cities on the map, active research and culture, and world leaders who pursue their own agendas based on historical traits. You can find the full list of new features here.
