Do you have what it takes to build a society from small beginnings to a world superpower? In Sid Meier's Civilization VI, that's the main aim of the game, but you have many ways of achieving your goal. As part of one of the most played strategy game series of all time, Sid Meier's Civilization VI offers unparalleled player choice in how they want their civilization to progress. Whether through military force, technological advancement, or a few other strategies, you can turn any civilization into a dominating force. With incredibly deep rules, lots of variety, and long-running match times, Sid Meier's Civilization VI is a game that will keep you playing until the sun comes up.

Main Game Features

  • Use strategy to gain global dominance
  • Solo and multiplayer options
  • Nearly 20 unique civilizations to choose from


Unlike other strategy games, such as Age of Mythology or the Total War series, Sid Meier's Civilization VI does not have a traditional story mode. Instead, each different civilization in the game has small objectives to complete, which often match up with the historical progress of that particular society. At the start, you have 19 different civilizations to pick from, including Egyptian, Japanese, Indian, Roman, English, and more. Each civilization starts you at a different place on the map and in a different era of time, so you'll have to assess your strategy before you get started.

There may not be any normal campaign missions, but that doesn't stop Sid Meier's Civilization VI from having a fun story. The concept of the game is to lead your civilization through decades of life, and in that way, you form a story all of your own. As you expand your city and political reach, you'll encounter other world leaders, do business with various factions, and much more. It's up to you to assess the strength and weakness of these decisions, where betrayals and war are a very real possibility.


Sid Meier's Civilization VI is a “4X” strategy game, meaning there are four primary ways to obtain victory. If you want to take a brute force method, you can exterminate your opponents through pure military force, building up your armies and weaponry to use without mercy. Crafty players can exploit their opponents and allies for big boons, while aspiring conquerors can expand their territory as far as possible, claiming all available land for themselves. To do all of this, you'll need to explore the map and work with or against other civilizations, carefully calculating each move. By providing these multiple ways of winning, Sid Meier's Civilization VI gives players a lot of freedom in how they want their matches to play out.

Many of the features and functions in the game are similar to previous titles like Sid Meier's Civilization IV, but there are a few systems that have been radically overhauled. Playing out in turn-based fashion, you'll still want to collect resources, bolster your population, and research new technology, but several other things have been changed. The biggest difference comes in how you build your city, as Sid Meier's Civilization VI plays out on a hexagonal grid. Unlike prior games, you'll need to contain different types of buildings in certain districts of your city, improving your research potential. Either way, it's your call in how you want to make your civilization the best of the best.


Even though Sid Meier's Civilization VI lacks some of the modes you'd expect from a strategy game, it makes up for it with a huge amount of content and player freedom. Unlike other strategy titles, you're not forced down one path or another, as aiming for cultural greatness is often just as effective as a military strategy.


For players who like lengthy play sessions where properly planned strategies reign supreme, try out Sid Meier's Civilization VI!


  • Endless strategic options
  • Each civilization feels different
