    • Public Transport gives 100 Gold per Appeal when replacing a Farm with a Neighborhood (was 50).
    • Ecommerce gives +2 Production and +5 Gold for all your Trade Routes (was +5 and +10 but only for international Trade Routes).
  • Civ Balance:
    • Victoria’s Pax Britannica ability now additionally awards a free melee class unit when constructing a Royal Navy Dockyard in a city founded on a foreign continent.
    • Lautaro's unique ability Swift Hawk has been updated to have an additional effect: Pillaging an enemy city plot now causes that city to lose 5 loyalty
    • Rebalancing Seondeok's Hwarang ability. Governors established in a city provide +3% Culture and Science for each Promotion they have earned, including their first (was +10% Culture and Science for any Governor regardless of Promotions).

  • Eras:
    • Made it so when somebody wins the game in the Information Era, it reset all players to be in a Normal Age and take away all Dedication bonuses.

MODDABILITY UPDATES
  • Governors and Governor Promotions now use 'Promotion Sets' which allows more than one governor type to be associated with a promotion and vice versa
 

BUG FIXES
  • Only show the "Capital Lost" when a player loses their original capital city (was also showing when a player lost their new capital city that also happened to be the original capital city of a different player).
  • Fixed for Priority Target highlighting invalid hexes.
  • Districts that cannot be repaired because the player is missing their pre-requisite Tech or Civic (ex. in a conquered city) will now say this in the city production UI.
  • For Great People that activate over luxury resources, a tile with a district belonging to another player is no longer treated as a valid activation tile (and it will not end up highlighted)
  • Frederick Barbarossa's UA no longer gives a combat bonus against Free Cities.
  • Liberating a city will now make that city immune against your Loyalty pressure, as was the design intent.
  • Correctly display when a Wonder needs an adjacent district. Clarified that the adjacent district requirement also must be a district owned by this city.
  • Fixed the combined arms boost by changing it to be “Have 3 Armies or Armadas.”
  • Fixed Victoria's Pax Britannica ability in the base game.
  • Enforced that cities cannot be founded on tiles with districts. It was possible before with the relaxed minimum city distance present in island situations.
  • Fixed an edge case where the historic moments for creating a Trading Post in another civ could be repeated and exploited
  • Made it so Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi only heals land units.
  • Fixed Bugs related to expelling units out of a City's or Civilization's borders when applicable. Units should no longer be expelled from a Free City when it flips due to Loyalty unless the city flips to a major civ and rules require it.
  • Fixed an issue with not counting armadas and Fleets for the Triple Seven achievement.
  • Ensure proper display of National Parks after a save is loaded.
  • Don't show Paradrop unit action if unit cannot move.

  • Addressed audio issues with large and mod-expanded map sizes
 

TEXT FIXES
  • Corrected the bonus text for the Zoning Commissioner Governor promotion (it said 30% but it is actually 20 %.)
  • Updated Rise and Fall Agenda descriptions to include what that leader dislikes.
  • Clarified Kilwa's description to show that it increases the type bonus from city states instead of the yield.
  • Removed a redundant font icon in the name of a city-state quest.
  • Updated Civilopedia text for Anarchy, since Anarchy does not affect Era Score.
  • Clarified text for Georgia's Unique Ability.
  • Clarified text for first sea/air unit Historic Moments.
  • Added information to technology descriptions about what resources are unlocked for harvesting (some were missing).
  • Document that Patron Saint Governor Promotion also helps Warrior Monks.
  • Removed "doubling" and "tripling" in description of effects for tourism. Use +100% or +200% instead.
  • Added Housing info to Polder description
  • Fixed the Fascism combat bonus description being incorrect in base game.
  • Updated wording for Religious Alliance to indicate that it refers to cities dominated by the player's religion.
  • Changed some text that was incorrectly referring to "Identity" instead of "Loyalty.”
 

GRAPHIC FIXES
  • Reduced the amount of snow on the Arena building so that it doesn't blow out as much at night.
  • Don't play Paradrop animation if the destination tile is not visible to the current observer.
 

AI
  • AI respects and uses new rules for joint wars and third party wars
  • AI evaluates joint and third party wars based on the chosen casus belli, and applies casus belli to its own offers
  • In trading cities, AI considers resources and great works it will gain or lose in the deal
  • As part of a city attack, will not pillage a separate city’s districts
  • AI will prioritize a city over units if it can capture or nearly capture the city
  • Fixed issues with AI strategies, including yield priorities and era strategies (as reported on community forums, thanks!).

  • Fixed issues regarding embarking units near enemy warships, evaluation now takes proper account of that.
  • AI can modify a deal with just gold when asked what would you give.
  • Germany (or anyone favoring minor civ war) won't care about their relationship to a minor civ suzerain unless it's them.
  • Give Greece and Pericles some preferences for culture and envoys.
  • Fix round off problem that was giving low threat values in duel maps (or with only 2 Civs left).
  • Free cities units that are not involved in attacking other units will stay within their own territory.
  • Improved city defense unit management.
 

 

MULTIPLAYER
  • Auto End Turn is now disabled for the remainder of a player's turn if they unready their turn.
  • Fixed multiplayer stall related to players disconnecting while the host was loading into a game.
  • Fixed zombie connection issue that was preventing some players from joining multiplayer games after a previous join.
  • Players should not be able to unready their turns after their turn timer elapses.
  • Dead civilizations are no longer selectable after loading a save in multiplayer. 
  • Multiplayer quick saves now go in the proper save folder for the current game mode.
  • Fixed default multiplayer handicap for third player in the Jadwiga's Legacy scenario.
UI
  • Changes to the way Governor Title notifications are handled.
    • The Governor Title notifications turn blocking no longer requires players to use the Governor Title to be dismissed.
    • Appoint Governor Notification will not appear if the player does not yet have a city to assign one.
  • Updated the window style of the Dedication screen and Era Rollover screen, emphasizing Era / Age types.
  • Added food needed for population growth in City Details Panel.
  • Made sure we only show the Emergency row and tab if there are emergencies involving both the selected player and the local player.
  • Fixed an issue where players could have duplicate city names, all names have to be unique now.

About This Game

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

  • EXPANSIVE EMPIRES:

    See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.
  • ACTIVE RESEARCH:

    Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.
  • DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY:

    Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
  • COMBINED ARMS:

    Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.
  • ENHANCED MULTIPLAYER:

    In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
  • A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS:

    Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.
