'Civilization VI' (ALL) New Frontier Pass: Vietnam & Kublai Khan Pack Introduces Kublai Khan - Trailer

Sid Meier's Civilization VI is a turn-based strategy that offers players new ways to interact with their world, expand their empire across the map, advance their culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization to stand the test of time.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI sets another milestone in the Civilization franchise, which has sold-in over 34 million units worldwide and changed the gaming landscape by bringing the strategy genre to unparalleled heights.

In Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, cities will physically expand across the map to create new, deep strategic layers, active research in technology and culture will unlock new potential ways to play; and the large variety of leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical character traits as players race to achieve victory however they choose to play.

The fifth DLC pack in the Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass – the Vietnam & Kublai Khan Pack – will be launching on Thursday, January 28, 2021.

The Vietnam & Kublai Khan Pack includes a new leader and civilization, Kublai Khan as a new alternate leader for China and Mongolia, a new game mode and a new district - the Preserve, which includes two new buildings in the Grove and the Sanctuary. 

Kublai Khan reigned from 1260 to 1294 AD and created an empire that ran from the Korean Peninsula to the very edges of modern-day Baghdad. He was the ruler of the Mongolian Empire and founded the Yuan Dynasty in China, serving as Emperor.

Available as an alternate leader to both Mongolia and China, Kublai Khan's unique ability is "Gerege" - providing one extra Economic policy slot in any government. It also grants a random Eureka and Inspiration when establishing a Trading Post in another civilization's city for the first time.

As a leader of China, Kublai Khan's science boosts are even more powerful and his extra policy slot empowers economic strategies. As a leader of Mongolia, Kublai Khan leverages trade routes for military might. 

The new game mode is called Monopolies & Corporations, bringing more robust economic gameplay that enables you to build an economic empire and live out your fantasies of swimming in pools of coins! With the new game mode, you'll be able to create an entire Industry around duplicate resources. Industries provide powerful buffs to their home cities and a steady supply of Great Merchant points; continue to collect more and you can level up an Industry to a Corporation. Your Corporations will allow you to create Products that are slotted into the Stock Exchange and Seaport buildings (like Great Works to Museums). If you do manage to dominate the global supply of a luxury resource, you can create a Monopoly, generating a massive amount of gold and Tourism.

The Vietnam & Kublai Khan Pack requires Civilization VI to play and will be available to anyone who owns the Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass or available for individual purchase for $8.99.

Key Features:

  • EXPANSIVE EMPIRES: See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain;
  • ACTIVE RESEARCH: Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures;
  • DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY: Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations;
  • COMBINED ARMS: Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units;
  • ENHANCED MULTIPLAYER: In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session;
  • A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS: Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems are designed to introduce new players to the underlying concepts of Civilization so they can easily get started on a path to victory.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
