Civilization VI is getting a year of premium and free updates with its “New Frontier” Season Pass

Over three years after release, Civilization VI is still being supported with new content updates, Civilizations and more. Now that the game has arrived on consoles, Firaxis has greatly expanded its support plans to Civilization VI, revealing plans to release bi-monthly updates to the game, offering players access to new factions, game modes, districts and more. 

This new content will come in the form of Civilization VI’s “New Frontier Pass”, a premium pass which will be accompanied with free updates for all players. This new content will be delivered between May 21st and March 2021. 

With this content pass, Firaxis has promised gamers access to eight new civilizations and nine new faction leaders, six new game modes, and other unannounced content. Civilization VI’s New Frontier Pass will cost $40 on all platforms, including PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch.

The new Frontier Pass will also include new “Personas” for Teddy Roosevelt and Catherine De Medici, which will give the leaders new models, gameplay bonus’ and agendas. This pack will give players new ways to play as the American and French Civilizations. Below is what Firaxis has to say about the new personas for Teddy Roosevelt and Catherine De Medici. 

 


Two of Civilization VI’s leaders are transformed with a new look and new abilities when you lead America and France! “Rough Rider Teddy” excels at keeping the peace on his home continent, and “Magnificence Catherine” can use Luxuries to overwhelm the world with Culture and Tourism. Each Persona Pack contains a brand-new take on a favorite leader, with a new leader model and background, new gameplay bonuses, and an updated agenda that reflect the changes to the leader’s personality. The Persona Packs are available exclusively to owners of the New Frontier Pass and will be delivered with the second add-on pack. 

  

In an interview with PCGamesN, Firaxis has confirmed that the studio has no plan to release the game’s DLL source code to modders. This factor has prevented Civilization VI from getting the same variety of modded content as Civilization V, preventing modders from adding new features to the game or fixing bugs which prevent modded content from functioning correctly.   

While it makes sense for Firaxis to keep this code under wraps, as popular mods could bring players away from Civilization VI’s premium content, it remains disappointing that modders are getting less control than they did with older versions of Civilization.

Most Civilization fans will be glad to see new content come to the game, especially those who are glad to see the Maya and Ethiopia return to the series. In addition to Civilization VI’s six planned premium content drops, the game will also receive six free updates, which will deliver balance changes, and free content to all Civilization owners.
