Thought you were done with the brilliant Sid Meier’s Civilization VI? Think again as today 2K have unveiled the New Frontier Pass, and it looks set to bring a whole ton of content to the game right through to 2021.
The Civilization VI New Frontier Pass is a brand new season pass for CIV VI that brings in no less than 8 new civilizations, 9 new leaders, 6 brand new game modes and a host more.
Arriving from May 21st 2020 and delivering content right through to March 2021, the New Frontier pass will see new content hitting the game on a bimonthly basis. Priced at £32.99 and available on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, with mobile devices due to receive it later in the year, the very first piece of this DLC will be the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack, which will add leaders from each respective civilization, a new Apocalypse game mode, new City-States, Resources and Natural Wonders.
“It’s been four years since we first announced Civilization VI, and the support from fans and players has been overwhelming,” said Ed Beach, franchise lead designer at Firaxis Games. “After two giant expansions in Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm, four years’ worth of balance updates and more, Civilization VI has grown into the flagship title for the series.”
“We’re very excited to be adding even more content to Civilization VI, ensuring long time players and franchise newcomers have something fresh to look forward to in the months to come,” added Anton Strenger, lead game designer at Firaxis Games. “By delivering new content on a regularly scheduled basis, we’ll have more opportunities than ever with the New Frontier Pass to connect with our community as we actively develop and deliver content.”
Each pack will also be available for individual purchase for those preferring to run that route. That said, if you purchase the new Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass then you will receive exclusive bonuses – the Teddy Roosevelt and Catherine De Medici Persona Packs. Each Persona Pack contains a brand-new take on a favourite leader, with a new leader model and background, new gameplay bonuses and an updated agenda that reflects the changes to the leader’s personality. “Rough Rider Teddy” excels at keeping the peace on his home continent, while “Magnificence Catherine” can use Luxuries to overwhelm the world with Culture and Tourism.
The Persona Packs will be available with the second DLC Pack in July.
Further to this, Civilization VI will receive free updates in between DLC packs that feature new maps, scenarios, balance updates and more, available for anyone who owns the game.
