Civilization VI releases on October 21, 2016. That’s this Friday.
The Civilization franchise isn’t too difficult when compared to other hex-based games, but it can be daunting to new players. There’s a lot to consider when playing. You’ll need to worry about victory conditions, research trees and other civilizations.
Watch the official “How to” series!
If you’re completely new to the franchise, Civilization VI‘s tutorial is threadbare. So, 2K and Firaxis have created a six-part video series to show new players the ropes.
You’ll find the full playlist embedded above. Here’s how each video is described.
