    Cool Civilization 6 has been announced!

    Civilization 6 has been announced!

    http://www.pcgamer.com/civilization-...-need-to-know/

    Hopefully it'll revisit the class "A" addiction of Civ 4, Civ 3 and Civ 2. Civ 5 is a 4/5 kind of good after the patches and DLC, but it's not quite up there with the others imo.

    Re: Civilization 6 has been announced!

    Civiliztion VI will be out on October 21, 2016.
    That's pretty soon! Graphics style is looking a bit cartoony for my personal taste, hopefully they'll rough it up for the actual release. Got plenty of play time out of 5, but just the basic game and skipped Beyond Earth as it was meant to be a bit similar. Maybe on the Christmas list

    Re: Civilization 6 has been announced!

    Honestly I don't even consider buying a Civ game any more until all the DLC has been released. Until then I see these more as a part complete experience, so I'd rather wait and buy much, much later.

    Would you say Civ is like Age of Empires?

    Not really, AOE was more of an RTS which is limited to the technology of the age in which its based, whereas Civ is a turn based game that spans from the begining of a civilisation right the way into the future.

    Civilisation is a lot more involved when it comes to trade and economics and AOE is a lot more involved when it comes to combat.

    Civ is turn based strategy and Age of Empires is real time strategy. AoE is steered towards the war scenario more, with Civ, war is more optional with different ways of winning such as the space race and cultural victories over the span of human civilisation etc. I think the Total War series is a bit of a mix between the two different styles as well.

    I'm a little bit addicted to Civilization, I think I've played them all. This new one seems to have better graphics from what I've seen, looks good.

    Best description of Civ that I've read; its a racing game.

    I hope they reintroduce the palace building :/

    Civ 6 is getting very good reviews, getting 9/10 roughly:

    Looks good, might have to build a new pc just for this at some point!

    Edit:

    Here's a mod for Civ 6 - a massive earth map:

    Re: Civilization 6 has been announced!

    I've been playing it, I'm still partial to the art style in Civ 5, but that's just nitpicking, this game is on par if not better than it in a most other aspects. Can't wait for the expansions.
