What you'll get in this bumper edition of the hit turn-based strategy
The Sid Meier’s Civilization series is one of the cornerstones of PC gaming. Turn-based strategy gaming aficionados and history buffs alike enjoy its gripping formula for seeing if your civilization can reign supreme over hundreds of years.
In Civilization VI Platinum Edition, gamers get more options than ever to get their Napoleonic groove on with the base game with two expansions and six Civilizations & Scenario Packs.
Let’s venture around the world like Carmen Sandiego and see what makes this a grand deal indeed!
The greatest adventure is there, if you're bold!
First and foremost, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Platinum Edition comes with the base game. Players have all the time in the world to noodle away at their civilization in its quest to reign supreme.
Research new technology, negotiate with rival nations and fight invaders in the tried and true tradition with richer graphics than ever before. Cities span more than one tile so you can take advantage of the terrain.
On a similar note, support units can embed with other units to make intriguing combinations. Multiplayer Civ fans have so many options to pick from they won’t know what to do with themselves!
Command and conquer
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Platinum Edition has a major bonus with six different bodacious packs: the Vikings Scenario Pack, the Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack, the Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack, the Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack, the Nubia Civilization & Scenario Pack, and the Khmer and Indonesia Civilization & Scenario Pack.
Not only do these packs give you more Civilizations to play as (each with their own unique bonuses), but they come with challenging scenarios for those looking to sharpen their skills. As if Civilization VI wasn’t a big enough game already, right?
An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind...
Rise and Fall adds a compelling new loyalty wrinkle to the mix. Don’t cater to a cities whims enough, and they might leave you for another civilization!
In addition, your Civ can enter either the Golden Age or the Dark Age if they meet certain criteria. Eurogamer’s Chris Tapsell noted these changes to the gameplay "completely shift how you think about the game".
As one might surmise from its name, Gathering Storm focuses on ecological consequence. Placements of cities become more important than ever as nature takes its toll through flood plains and disasters of a larger sort.
If your civilization survives long enough, the ice caps start to melt. Gameplay in the Gathering Storm is a bountiful challenge for even the most seasoned veteran.
As Fraser Brown of PC Gamer fame put it, "it’s the most exciting Civilization has been in ages".
There are no more worlds to conquer
So, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Platinum Edition comes with the base game, six Civilizations & Scenario Packs and the Gathering Storm and Rise and Fall expansions. It’s a must for strategy gamers of all kinds!
