Hey everyone, and as you might or might not know, the new Civilization 6 update went live just yesterday and along with it the new game mode – Red Death which I don’t think literally anyone expected, and if you haven’t seen it we are going to watch the trailer together. It’s certainly something But why… for what reason?? just…. why? Okay, so that was basically my initial reaction but I tried Red Death earlier today, and it wasn’t bad, and I think it actually filled a pretty important gap that existed in Civilization, because if you want to play some form of multiplayer then you either have to play it in multiple sessions to finish an actual full game or you have to commit to playing multiple hours in one go, which a lot of people cannot do But now you can play Red Death for an hour or two, because that’s roughly how long it takes to complete one Red Deah game Obviously, it won’t be anything like a traditional Civ game, but if you want to play some form of multiplayer Then this is actually perfect, and it was quite fun The way it works is that you basically start with two military units and a civilian You can get more units, and more civilians as you play You lose when your civilians die or get captured. If you have no civilians left then you get eliminated – and your objective is to eliminate everyone else and as in every, or at least most battle royale games you have a safe zone and an increasing red zone you take damage when you stay inside the red zone too long and if you stay way too long, then you get killed obviously – and the safe zone gets progressively smaller and smaller and smaller so even if you avoid fighting and go around collecting things on the map, you will eventually get forced to fight and that’s basically it – it’s not like, super complicated as you might expect, but it’s quite fun to play for an hour or two I’m actually quite curious what modders could potentially do with this, because I assume it’s moddable I don’t see why it wouldn’t be So that might be an interesting direction to take it in With how creative some people in the modding community are, this could lead to some really interesting things So I’m also looking forward to that. And I might actually play it on the channel in some form or another I can’t confirm or deny I might have something planned – just can’t promise how that’s going to work out just yet But hey, I think it’s quite fun. What do you think? What was your initial reaction and the later reaction or maybe some of you guys already played it? Let me know But for now that’s going to be the end of this video this was just like, a short reaction video and my thoughts about Red Death, because quite a few people asked me how I feel about this So, this is how I feel at least so far So, thanks for watching – I hope you enjoyed it, and I’ll see you next time. Bye bye!
