Civilization VI is coming to new platforms this year. During Sony’s latest State of Play presentation, publisher 2K Games announced it is bringing the critically acclaimed strategy game to PS4–as well as Xbox One–this November, marking the first time the series has appeared on either of those consoles since 2008’s Civilization Revolution.
Civ VI will arrive on PS4 and Xbox One on November 22. The base game will retail for $60, while all of its expansions will be packaged together into one Expansion Bundle for $50 (which will also be released for Nintendo Switch). The bundle includes the following content:
- Civilization VI: Rise and Fall expansion
- Civilization VI: Gathering Storm expansion
- 18 additional Civilization Leaders
The PS4 and Xbox One release of Civ VI also comes with the following four additional content packs:
- Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack
- Vikings Scenario Pack
- Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack
- Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack.
PS4 owners will also receive the Nubia Civilization & Scenario Pack and Khmer and Indonesia Civilization & Scenario Pack for free when they pick the game up on Sony’s console; those packs will also be available for purchase on Xbox One.
Civ VI was originally released in 2016 on PC, with a Nintendo Switch version following two years later. The game was well received on its initial release. GameSpot awarded it a 9/10 in our original Civilization VI review. Critic Scott Butterworth wrote:
“Civ 6 has a few rough edges, but they’re pushed far into the periphery by spectacular strategic depth and intricate interlocking nuances. Any frustrations I experienced were immediately eclipsed by my desire to continue playing. Just one more turn, every turn, forever.”
