Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack
Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack

Key features for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI on Nintendo Switch include:

PLAY YOUR WAY: The path to victory is the one you determine. Become the most scientifically advanced civilization, dominate through sheer military power, or become the foremost destination for the cultural arts.
THE WORLD’S GREATEST LEADERS: Play as one of 24 different leaders from various countries around the world and throughout history. Build an empire of lucrative trade routes with Cleopatra of Egypt, flex the military might of your legions with Trajan of Rome, or develop a powerhouse of culture with Hojo Tokimune of Japan. Each of the leaders can be played any way you prefer, with unique abilities, units, and infrastructure in their quest for victory.
EXPANSIVE EMPIRES: See the marvels of your empire spread across the map. Settle in uncharted lands, improve your surroundings, build new districts, and see your cities – and your civilization – prosper.
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.

Be part of the colonization of Australia in “Outback Tycoon,” defend Poland from invaders in “Jadwiga’s Legacy”, choose a Viking leader to plunder Europe in “Vikings, Raiders, and Traders!”, or conquer the known world in the “Conquests of Alexander.”

This is nuts! Is there any game that isn't coming to Switch these days?

Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Fallout 76, Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Darksiders 3, Just Cause 4, etc.


Don’t forget GTAV Smile although that could (and should) come to Switch

Wonder if this was meant for the Direct...

I wonder how long will be the direct when it eventually hits... By the way things are going, there'll only be the 1st party titles left to announce

It’s going to be 35 min long.

Which other games had been “leaked” recently?

I think MegaMan would have been a "demo available right now" sort of thing, there's FF XV mobile HD and this looks like it should be in the direct too.
It's a bummer, but that's how business works in the end, can't even fault those companies for announcing the games anyway.

I've tried playing a Civ game but I either don't understand it or I can't get into it. Is Civ 6 any good?

Also, what's the retail price? Physical or strictly digital?

You are right about the game being a bit "confusing". I think it's a kind of game that's hard to enjoy if you don't have someone to explain how to enjoy it, lol.

I tried to play Civ I to III without understanding or enjoying, while my brother was always the biggest fan. So I sat with him, he explained it to me while playing it for about 1 hour and then I got hooked!

Now I'm looking forward to play it on Switch :-)

I found Civ V and VI to be more accessible for newcomers but at the same time has deep mechanics.

My favourite Civ still has to be Civ IV - I’d highly recommend checking that out if you have a PC or Mac.

Wow. I was hoping for Civ Rev 2 or a new Revolution game though.

Pardon my French but.....FUCK YES!!!

Not sure, does this include the Rise and Fall expansion?

I have sunk several hundred hours into every Civ game since the original. #onemoreturn

I've heard nothing but great things from these games. I may bite on getting this one to try it out. I will need a bit more information and possibly a review to push me for the purchase.

If you enjoy saying “I’ll play for 10 more minutes...” and then find yourself still playing at 4am....then this is the game for you Smile

This will be good for some long plane trips! My partner loves Civ even more than I do, so he'll definitely be stoked to play it on the go. Especially having the game on him while we are visiting my family at Christmas, lol.
