It took publisher 2K Games and developer Firaxis Games three years, but Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is finally coming to the PS4 and Xbox. This marks the first time that a title in the acclaimed turn-based strategy game franchise will be appearing on Sony and Microsoft home consoles since 2008’s Civilization Revolution.
The base game will be priced at US$60 while all the expansions will be available in a bundle priced separately at US$50 (which will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch, on which the base game is already available now).
The expansions bundle will include:
- Civilization VI: Rise and Fall expansion
- Civilization VI: Gathering Storm expansion
- 18 additional Civilization Leaders
Four additional content packs will arrive with the base game at no extra cost, including the following:
- Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack
- Vikings Scenario Pack
- Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack
- Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack
PS4 players can look forward to receiving the Nubia Civilization & Scenario Pack and Khmer and Indonesia Civilization & Scenario Pack for free, while those on the Xbox One will have to purchase these separately.
According to the official description, Civilization 6 on consoles:
“… not only looks great, but that it plays well.
The controls and UI are optimized for a controller experience, and you’ll find accessing information and moving about the map is a breeze.
Our goal was to create a controller experience that gives the player total control over the map, menus and movement – and we believe we accomplished that.”
Civilization 6 is slated to release for the PS4 and Xbox One on 22 November 2019. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
