At E3 2016, 2K Games and Firaxis invited press behind-closed-doors to get an in-depth look at the freshly announced Civilization VI in action. That same 12 minute demo has now been uploaded to YouTube for fans to enjoy in all its glory.
Narrated by Sean Bean, the same actor behind the announcement trailer with roles in The Lord of the Rings, Equilibrium and a lot more, narrates this walkthrough. He does not die in it, despite his cinematic track record.
Civilization VI boasts a redesigned tech tree, map congestion reduction tweaks, modified AI opponent behavior, city districts and a brand new Civics tree. There’s a lot going on in this new sequel, and it seems to me that the gameplay clip above barely scratches the surface.
Civilization VI will launch for the Windows, OS X and Linux platforms on October 21, 2016. We’ll have more on this strategic game set to keep us up far too late as it comes.
