Civilization VI has just been announced, bringing better cities and better graphics to the PC in October. The game promises to include "Everything that Civilization players have loved in Civilization V" and more.

The game will offer a lot of the same features as Civilization V but this time, cities will play a much larger role as they will be able to occupy several tiles with each tile representing its own unique district where only certain buildings can be constructed. City location also of great importance, as certain locations will give players specific bonuses, such as coastal cities offering a bonus when researching maritime technologies. 

 

  Everything that Civilization players have loved inCivilization V, we’re bringing forward, in addition to putting on the new gameplay fromCivilization VI, It’ll be like a warm blanket

Diplomacy will also receive a huge overhaul in Civilization VI, with the personality and motivations of foreign leaders changing over time depending on how you and other factions around them act. One example is if a Civilization that is obsessed with great buildings/wonders and a rival Civilization builds more wonders than them they may become jealous, and strain their relationship.   

One example is if a Civilization that is obsessed with great buildings/wonders see a rival Civilization building more wonders than they can, they may become jealous and their relationship becomes strained. The AI will also be more forgiving of some past deeds, or more grateful for assistance than in previous games. It seems in Civilization VI the AI may not be declaring war out of nowhere, well, at least not as often.     

Each historical leader will still have their own personal agenda, but Civilisation VI wants to have foreign power act in a way that the player can understand and relate to, but at the same time offer a different experience each time you play the game.

The game will be built on a whole new engine, one that will no doubt take advantage of a modern graphical API like Vulkan or DirectX 12, given Firaxis' support of AMD's Mantle API in Civilization: Beyond Earth. 

The new engine will give the game a much brighter and more detailed aesthetic, but also give AI characters a lot more personality and animation, which will allow players to better judge their mood and mindset.  

With the last numbered release in 2010 and the fan reception of the space bases Beyond Earth spin off being fairly mixed, it makes sense for Firaxis to focus on what made fans of the series love Civilization V. 

Civilization VI will be releasing on PC on October 21st, 2016. Currently, pre-orders cost £49.99 for the standard version and £69.99 for the Digital Deluxe edition

Sounds like they are improving a lot of what people didn't like in V. Should be a good game! I just personally not a fan of the new graphics. To cartoonish for me.Quote

I am very excited by this. All I hope is that it is as good as Civ V after the expansions.

Firaxis has an awful problem with the game not being as good as it's predecessor, at least until expansions are released.Quote

Yeah there last two games would show that would be true. Tbh I regret buying Civ:BE. One of the worst game purchases I ever made in recent memory, it's terrible imo. Basically an alternate base Civ V game that's just skinned differently and somehow far more boring!

If they could expand upon how Civ V is now, that would be a great baseline to expand off of and should make the franchise go back to it's glory days. I'm pretty darn excited for the new Game Engine they are using too, interested in those details.

Edit: Just in case anyone is curious. If you preorder the game through steam, you can also get the Steam Controller for 40% off.

The way I see it Beyond earth would have been a brilliant expansion for civ V, but it isn't great as a standalone title.

I got enough good playtime out of it, but it was nowhere close to Civ V.

I look forward to seeing how this new engine runs. hopefully the time between turns will decrease, as Civ V could chug if you made a big enough game.Quote
