“History is full of rich stories of great empires, exploration, survival, and the human spirit,” Says Ed Beach, Franchise Lead Designer for Civilization VI. “Our story of human history was missing something without the impact that a changing planet has had on our settlements, and the imprints that we have left behind on Earth.”
