Other Civilization News: Winter Update
Last month, Firaxis released the first new content for the latest Civilization game quietly. The said content dubbed “Winter update” adds a new Civ and some scenarios. Furthermore, the new Civ called Poland works great for players who prefer to take the more direct and literal approach.
In addition, its unique building is also simple, which gives the player more gold and production. Meanwhile, its unique unit just bulldozes enemy units. In addition, the culture tomb appears to be making its return.
Hence, Polish players can now be able to build forts. These ports can push national borders back which is kind of game-breaking on smaller maps. Furthermore, Winter Update’s other selling point was the addition of two major scenarios.
One of the scenarios is based on the Ottoman invasion of Central Europe, while the other is based on the Vikings. Linux players are going to be excited about getting their hands on Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 and its new updates.
