Sid Meier’s Civilization VI lets you rule one of the great civilizations of history. But how do you choose which one to lead? In this video, we’ll show you how. We’ve already revealed some of the great civilizations of history in Civilization VI: America, Japan, France, Egypt and China. Each civilization has unique strengths. Some civilizations are aggressive and militaristic. Others are strong with diplomacy, or might focus on growth and expansion. Experienced players often choose civilizations that complement their playing style. Choose a civilization based on your interests or its abilities. Let’s say we want to build lots of Wonders – buildings like the Great Pyramids – which grant your civilization unique bonuses. We want to build these early in the game so we can grow quickly, rather than focusing on building large armies for defense. We see that China has the ability to use its Builders to speed the construction of Wonders, and has the Great Wall as a defensive tile improvement. But Egypt has a special ability that lets it build Wonders in places they normally couldn’t go. Should we choose Egypt instead? Since China also has the ability to create the Great Wall improvement, we can use that to help out a smaller army. Egypt doesn’t have any such defensive bonus. We’ll choose China over Egypt. Eventually you’ll want to go back and play as all of the civilizations. Eventually you’ll want to go back and play as all of the civilizations.
