Civilization VI: Gathering Storm

Post by DjchunKfunK » Tue Nov 20, 2018 7:46 pm

New Civ VI expansion announced, focused around global warming an natural disasters. Not hugely interesting to me I have to say.

They're adding the World Congress in, finally. The problem is that the AI has been broken since this game launched, so unless they make any decent strides with fixing it then the whole diplomatic angle that the features for this expansion are built around will be totally pointless.

A few more details in this article.

I see it's currently on pre-order on Steam for £35. I can't be certain but I think Rise and Fall went for less than that.

R&F was nearly the same price. It's the reason I still haven't bought it.

I'm still not 100% sold on the climate stuff but it is good to hear that lategame it doesn't have a massive effect.

Are the expansions independent of one another or do you need to own R&F for this to work? I'm really not keen on a lot of the stuff I heard about the first one but this second installment is getting a lot of praise from the Civ community so far.

As far as I know you only need the base game.
