Civilization VI: Gathering Storm – Preview

I am a late bloomer when it came to realize what a masterpiece the Civilization-series has been – I bought CIV V late 2015, and immediately got hooked. Later we’ve gotten Civilization VI, which I honestly found a bit basic after playing CIV V with all DLC etc. Now, I have been lucky enough to get a copy of Gathering Storm, the upcoming DLC to Civilization VI.

Some of the new features include:

Environmental effects

  • Volcano
  • Flood

  • Seasteads
  • Advanced AI
  • Cybernetics
  • Distributed Sovereignty
  • Off-world Mission

New Civilizations:

  • Canada – Wilfrid Laurier
  • Hungary – Matthias Corvinus
  • Inca – Pachacuti
  • Mali – Mansa Musa
  • Maori – Kupe
  • Phoenicia – Dido
  • Sweden – Kristina
  • The Ottomans – Suleiman

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to play as much as I wanted by the writing of this preview – but one thing’s for certain – with Gathering Storm, Civilization VI is my all time favorite in the series. I especially like the man-made environmental changes, as you can no longer go full on with coal and oil, but actually, have to think about possible consequences.

I must also say, although it really hurts my Norwegian heart, that Kristina might be my new favorite leader in Civilization VI (I’m gonna say it’s because of me being 1/16th Swedish). Mostly I mean this as using her as a playable character, but I’ve also enjoyed playing against/together with her, she’s both interesting and is someone I want to succeed alongside me when playing as another Civ.

I will, of course, be back with a more thorough review, with a score, once the embargo has lifted on 11th of February, so make sure to watch out for that! Until then, you can find me practicing my Swedish…
