25th Anniversary of Civilization Franchise Celebrated with Launch of Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

With the first Civilization game published in September 1991, gamers have been strategically building their own empires for more than 25 years through a number of main numbered, expansion and side titles. Marking this quarter-century milestone of the franchise, 2K Games and Firaxis Games have released Sid Meier’s Civilization VI worldwide, exclusively on the Windows PC.

Like its predecessors, Civilization VI is a turn-based strategy game where players must work to expand their empire as far as possible, advancing their culture against other leaders to stand the test of time. These expanding cities will once again see players obtain resources, dominate others and research their way to success – with new gameplay features including active research and unstacking cities.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is now available exclusive on the Windows PC. While there is a standard edition available for purchase, you can also grab a Digital Deluxe Edition for a bundled discount of $79.99 USD, which includes the full base game, 25th Anniversary Digital Soundtrack and four post-launch DLC packs. Do note that prices may vary between stores and regions.
