Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm is the next expansion in the turn-based series about world domination. It offers nine new leaders, eight new civilizations, seven new world wonders, as well as a variety of new units, districts, buildings, and improvements.
The expansion also unleashes mother nature’s wrath with new environmental effects and an ecosystem that responds to your choices. Your decisions could trigger world-ravaging natural disasters like floods, storms, and volcanoes. Fans can expect extensions for the Technology and Civics trees with a future era, as well as two novel scenarios: Black Death and War Machine.
Black Death features the titular plague which decimated European populations during the Middle Ages. Gathering Storm will task you with leading the effected countries, limiting the casualty count, and keeping the economy from collapsing.
In the multiplayer scenario War Machine, you must defend Paris from Germany’s blitzkrieg assault, or ensure success depending on which side you choose, with the ability to replay the battles of World War II as time marches on.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm launches February 14 on PC.
