Sid Meier’s Civilization series is something of an anomaly in gaming culture. The grandaddy of turn-based strategy gaming has been around for years and it’s still producing award-winning games that innovate and improve on the genre it helped build. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, the series’ latest installment, is no exception.
Winner of 15 E3 Awards, including Best PC Game and Best Strategy Game, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI challenges players to take on history’s greatest leaders and create an empire that stands the test of time. From military domination to scientific achievement, there are multiple ways to win – but all require smart planning and brilliant tactics.
While the victory conditions have remained mostly the same, the series’ newest edition changes things up. How do two parallel tech trees and an innovative city system sound? What’s more, personal history will affect the decisions of competing leaders – which is huge! This also encourages unique strategic agendas that add to the empire-building experience.
The new Rise & Fall expansion pack builds upon Sid Meier’s Civilization VI’s challenges and helps create new ones. With a new loyalty mechanic, every decision you make counts and can affect the allegiances of your opponents and citizens. So whole cities are now capable of shifting alliances and even breaking free.
As if that wasn’t enough, your leadership decisions also play a bigger role in when sought-after Golden Ages occur. Make the right choices, and you can fast-track your empire’s progress. Get too reckless and you can take your empire spiraling down a Dark Age, complete with its own unique and harrowing challenges.
Victory is far from easy, but each installment’s new challenges keep players coming back for more.
