THIS month Sid Meier’s Civilization VI will continue to deliver brand new content to it’s player base in the form of bimonthly DLC packs. New Frontier Pass is a new paid feature for Civilization VI which will introduce new civilizations, leaders and game modes plus much more. On top of the already scheduled content, free updates will be available between DLC packs which include new maps and scenarios which will also be available to non-New Frontier Pass owners.
“It’s been four years since we first announced Civilization VI, and the support from fans and players has been overwhelming,” said Ed Beach, franchise lead designer at Firaxis Games. “After two giant expansions in Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm, four years’ worth of balance updates and more, Civilization VI has grown into the flagship title for the series.”
“We’re very excited to be adding even more content to Civilization VI, ensuring longtime players and franchise newcomers have something fresh to look forward to in the months to come,” added Anton Strenger, lead game designer at Firaxis Games. “By delivering new content on a regularly scheduled basis, we’ll have more opportunities than ever with the New Frontier Pass to connect with our community as we actively develop and deliver content.”
New Frontier Pass will be available from May 22 for all Civilization VI base game owners on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, Mac and Linux. The DLC package as a whole will set you back $59.95 in Australia and $63.95 in New Zealand although each bimonthly DLC can be purchased individually. Purchasing New Frontier Pass however will score you exclusive bonuses such as the Teddy Roosevelt and Catherine De Medici Persona Packs which change already existing leaders personalities, backgrounds and gameplay.
