Civilization VI: Gathering Storm – First Look: Ottomans


FIRST LOOK: OTTOMANS Suleiman leads the Ottomans in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. He is commonly referred to as Suleiman the Magnificent, and personally led conquests to expand his empire while instituting societal reform. Suleiman’s unique ability is “Grand Vizier.” This unlocks a unique Governor – Ibrahim – with his own unique promotion tree. He’s the only Governor that can be established in another civilization, and can be a major player in Diplomacy. It also unlocks the Janissary, Suleiman’s unique unit. This Musketman replacement is stronger and cheaper to build, and starts with a free Promotion. But it consumes a population in the city in which it is trained, unless it is trained in a conquered city. The Ottoman’s unique building is the Grand Bazaar. It replaces the Bank in the Commercial Hub, and adds extra Amenities and Strategic resources available in the city. Their unique unit is the Barbary Corsair. This naval raider replaces the Privateer, but can be built earlier. Also, Coastal Raids have no movement cost for this unit. The Ottoman’s unique ability is “Great Turkish Bombard.” They can construct Siege units much faster, and all Siege units receive additional Combat Strength. Conquered cities do not lose population, and benefit from Amenity and Loyalty bonuses while under Ottoman control. As the Ottomans, the Medieval and Renaissance eras will be your prime time for conquest. Use your powerful siege units to topple foreign cities and Ibrahim’s abilities as Governor to secure them. Those cities then serve as ideal places to build more Janissaries, and you can maintain this overwhelming force by building your Grand Bazaar in a number of cities. Will you turn the eyes of the world to your victories? How will you lead the Ottomans in Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm?

  1. Thanks so much for watching! Be sure to like the video and subscribe to the channel. Tap the bell to opt into all notifications so you don't miss a single video!

    Are you excited to see the Ottomans in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm?

  2. Hungarian Canons, Jannisaries from the Balkans, Corsairs from North-Africa. Truly the pinnacle of multiculturalism.

  3. It sounds like he is actually speaking closer to Ottoman Turkish as opposed to the modern Turkish more commonly heard in games. That's a neat touch!

  4. Why ottoman is in the gathering storm expansion?

    Ottoman should be in the basic game. It is major empire. -_-
    Alongside with USA, Germany, French, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc.

  5. i truly hope they whiten his skin a lil bit, this is a highly influential game and as such, is a big reason why many people think that turks are arabs or related to them somehow. It is simply wrong ^^ aside from that the ottomans look great.

  6. Civ VI tried diffrent leaders for most of civ. This was gived a hope to see Atatürk as Leader of Turkish civ. Hovewer we found a generic Suleiman the Law Maker instead
    (We are not calling him as Magnificent / Muhteşem, he is Law Maker / Kanunî for Turks). Also he is looks like Indian Raja. Most of Ottoman Sultan had Circassian, Tatar, Slav or Greek mother. In case of Suleiman, his mother was Polish Jew Helga. His skin color in game definetely perfect example of stereotyping middle easterners.

  7. If you guys want to create to a thin leader. Just change the name to Mehmed II. It's more correctly to history. Besides, he's also not brown which Suleiman's also. This guy is… Not Suleiman neither any Turkish leader or even a governor.

  8. All these new civs seem to have capabilities that are more powerful than the already existing civs. So will the existing civs get a buff too?

  9. Orosbu evlatları osmanlıyı eklemiş alt yazı eklememişler ben bi kanuniyle şehirlerinizi sikiveriyimde görün gününüzü…

  10. In this trailer Suleiman speaks Turkish in the background. The most anachronistic thing I've ever seen in my life. He speaks fucking fluent Turkish!

  11. This looks nothing like Sultan Süleyman. Hell, this guy looks nothing like a Turk, at all. Turks aren't Arabs. I'm sure you guys are capable of a simple Google Image Search, he had portraits painted and his skin is obviously white. So well done intentionally brown-washing one of the greatest leaders in our history.

  12. Why have you made his skin so dark?, he was light skinned. He looks like an Indian in this. A quick google of him shows how his skin actually was. In civ 5 you got it right so why have you done this?

  13. Oh finally..😌But thats so wrong. It was almost impossible to have a brownish/Arabic look for sultans because there was a slavery system called “Harem” which based on beautiful slaves from Europe being served to sultans and give birth to heirs. So from the beginning and to the end Ottoman family always been carrying european gens mixed.

  14. After playing the ottomans for the first time I've got to say I love that the Barbary corsairs are an actual unit now and not just an ability

  15. Suleiman,splendor in this game is officially lost. In addition, the color of the skin is strange. He gave weight, it's weird.😀

  16. To be honest, I frankly don't understand why he doesn't look anything like the real Suleiman. Most historic characters look fairly similar to their real counterpart, this dude doesn't ring any suleiman bells for me.

  17. Stop making him brown, As a Turk when I see an Ottoman Sultan like Süleyman I want to see a correct representation of him. He had no dark skin. It pisses me off to see incorrect representations of historical characters. Get your shit together Civ 6.
    Clothing, theme and the way he speaks is great though.

  18. He doesnt look anything like Suleiman why fraxis why?The guy had his portraits made by italian painters everything is crystal clear about how he looked like,you have no excuse. Who is this saudi?Shame on you you should suck it up and change it.Listen to your customers,you should know what happens to compainies who doesnt listen to their customers.

  19. WTF! What the actual fuck! If I was brown or black, you know what would offend me a lot? A white dude in history being portrayed as a brown dude. It is the same type of bullshit with putting some face paint on a white dude to portray a black guy, you know the way they used to do in Hollywood movies back in the old days.
    We can see who the real racists are. The SJW will never manage to see people as just that, PEOPLE! Not white people, not brown people, not black people, just fucking people. If you learn to look at people this way, you won't feel the need to tweak the skin colors of historical figures. Because white, brown or black, he will be a person, not a symbol for you to virtue signal over.

  20. I would rather give a cavalry unique unit instead of bazaar. Cavalry was the backbone of Ottoman Empire so while great bombard+janissary+barbary corsair sounds great, the biggest one seems to be left out.
    Cebelü(sipahi) or akinji would have been a great addition replacing maybe medieval knight, giving it more movement points, less recruiting Money.

  21. I appreciate your adding Suleiman to the game, and i sincerely thank you but he looks like an indian or arab or smt. I am not being racist but he was a white person as all other ottoman sultans. I know we are associated with arab people but we are an another nation with different physical attributes and we came from central asia. We have our national pride and characteristics. Please consider this while doing smt.

  22. 2K: Here we kill black people. So SJW is imporant lets make turks black.

    Reality: Bullshit

    Netflix: We need more hindu. Suleyman is hindu and gay too.

    Me: Nope its just junny I just want Civ V graphics back. Nothing look serious anyway. Make us black or gay or arap or merzifonlu taşfırın ustası.

  23. Greek, Arab, Macedon, Egyptian, and Persian: * gulps * with flashbacks

    Hungary: whats up, I just moved here, Im Hungary by the way
    rest of the civs points at the newly introduced civ
    Hungarian: oh no

  24. man they use different guys for same civs but its Pontiff Sulyvhan again? – I meant Poncik Süleyman ofc.

    I wished theyd also pick other turkic civs.. the Seljuks would be awesome

  25. Why they didnt pick other sultan… Coz he also appeard in Civilization 5…pick others like Abdulhamid II, Yavuz Selim or Mehmed II

  26. Civ 6 suleiman looks like a persian sha with his dark skin and his green clothes but he talks native ottoman tukish thats awesome. Civ 5 suleiman looks more like the Sulaiman we know from the paint but his dubbed is so bad he talks like he lives in the 21th century

  27. Suleiman was from crimea khanate tartar and father from turkey. Still looks arab somehow in civ 6 yet clearly painted white in potraits.
