Empires come and go — but none of them do so in quite the same epic, sweeping fashion of Sid Meier’s Civilization VI. This is the latest installment of the best-selling franchise, and it’s even more comprehensive and compelling than previous versions.
The game is based on a quintessential premise: how people come into power, and how civilizations rise and fall. But this turn-based strategy game has five different outcomes — all based on how you decide to wage war, conduct diplomacy and compete with other leaders. You’ll see your empire spread as you move it from the Stone Age to the Information Age — actively explore and unlock different boosts as you develop your environment, and interact with other civilizations dynamically. You can combine units to build more powerful defenses, or just compete with your friends.
