Civilization VI Adds Hungary in Gathering Storm Expansion

Hungary Joins the Gathering Storm

Firaxis games has released a new first look trailer for their next Civilization VI expansion. However, this time it features the next playable civilization which is Hungary. Led by Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary and Croatia from 1458 to 1490, Hungary is a domination-focused civ that is built for rapid expansion.

What Unique Features Does Hungary Have?

True to history, rivers play a big part in the prosperity of Hungary’s cities. Which is why their unique ability is called “Pearl of the Danube.” With it, any district or building constructed across a river from a city center is built faster. This allows players to outpace the competition through careful city planning around rivers.
