Firaxis has released its second major expansion for 4X turn-based strategy Civilization 6 with Gathering Storm. While the new natural disasters have been hogging attention, there’s a lot more to look forward to in terms of new gameplay features. Check out the expansion on Steam right now.
For those who have yet to play it, Civilization 6: Gathering Storm adds eight new civilizations with nine new leaders. You can build 18 new units, 5 new districts, and 9 buildings including, seven new World Wonders. The natural disasters in question include storms, floods, and volcanoes. You also have resources like Coal and Oil to generate electricity, with renewable energy also opening up. Stick to polluting the environment and don’t be surprised if sea levels rise around the world.
Diplomatic Favor is your new tool for dealing with other civilizations, and can be used to strike bargains or create alliances. Diplomatic Victory is very much possible if the focus is on making your vote matter the most. And of course, there are the new scenarios, like the Black Death, in which you must keep your population alive as the plague ravages the world.
