It’s been a while since we last saw a Civilization game arrive on Xbox One, But 2K are finally getting their act together to bring the rather excellent Civilization VI and all its expansion content to Xbox One and PS4 this coming fall.
November 22nd 2019 is the date you will wish to be sticking in your diary as the award winning strategy title will hit XO and PS4, the first time since 2008 and Civilization Revolution we will have seen a Civ game on either Xbox or PlayStation.
After previously arriving on Nintendo Switch, the arrival of Civ VI is a big deal for many, mainly because the gameplay that it holds within is of the first class variety, and the amount of content on offer is high.
It’ll be coming to Xbox One and PS4 in a couple of flavours too, with the standard game due to hit home for £44.99, and then the Expansion Bundle arriving for an extra £32.99. It is that which is hugely interesting though with all of the following included…
- Civilization VI: Rise and Fall – adds new Golden Ages and Dark Ages, a new city Loyalty system, and Governors who can be stationed in players’ cities, giving players new choices, strategies and challenges;
- Civilization VI: Gathering Storm – the most successful expansion in franchise history, introduces players to an active planet where geology and climatology present unique new challenges;
- 18 Additional Civilization Leaders – from the expansions, choose from some of history’s most renowned leaders to help guide your civilization through the ages, each bringing unique bonuses, buildings, units and more.
That same Civilization VI Expansion Bundle will also be available for purchase on Nintendo Switch
“It’s been more than a decade since Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution brought 4X strategy gaming to the living room,” said Melissa Bell, Senior Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “We can’t wait to invite new players to join more than 5.5 million Civilization VI fans from around the world and take one more turn on their Xbox One or PlayStation 4.”
“For Firaxis, having Civilization VI launch on Xbox and PlayStation gives us the opportunity to bring strategy games to new audiences, some of whom may never have played a strategy game before,” added Ed Beach, Lead Designer on Civilization VI. “The team at Firaxis has been hard at work to make Civilization VI the best game possible and we look forward to welcoming new players into our community.”
2K are promising that the edition of Civilization VI that will be arriving on Xbox One and PS4 will be the most current version of the game, with all the latest updates and gameplay refinements included. Make sure you keep an eye out for the launch of it on November 22nd 2019 – we’ll be there the minute it hits home, and will be sure to let you know of its arrival!
