Watch: Starting a new game in Civilization 6

Chris plays a few turns with Firaxis.

How are we only two (and a bit) months away from the release of Civilization 6? When did that happen?!

Having played it a couple of times now, I'm feeling pretty good about what Firaxis has planned for its next numbered Civ game. So much of what we liked about the Civ 5 expansions, Gods & Kings and Brave New World, is already present here. Right from the get go.

Following my last hands-on with the game, I was joined by Senior Producer, Dennis Shirk, as we played a few turns. You can watch for yourself in the video below as we get utterly lost in the details. This is Civilization after all.

Pay special attention to the introduction, by the way, as you can hear Civ 6's excellent new theme playing in the background. Phwoar. Well good.

Playing the game right now? Read our Civilization 6 guide, tips and tricks to lead your civilization to glory.
