Sid Meier’s Civilization Celebrates 32nd Anniversary With Leader Pass Console Launch

Sid Meiers Civilization, the historical turn-based strategy game series is celebrating its 32nd anniversary with a new update for consoles.

Civilization 32nd Anniversary

Sid Meiers Civilization’s first video game was launched in 1991 based on the original board game released back in 1980. Since then the series has developed over time with various iterations leading to the most recent Civilization VI which launched in 2016. Next month the franchise celebrates its 32nd anniversary and with that, they are now offering the Civilization VI: Leader Pass on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch which is included within the Anthology bundle or purchased separately. The leader pass will introduce 12 leaders brand new to the game as well as 6 new takes on classic leaders.

Leader Pass Includes:

  • Pack #1: Great Negotiators Pack
    Test your diplomacy skills with the Great Negotiators Pack, including Abraham Lincoln (United States), Queen Mbande Nzinga (Kongo), and Sultan Saladin (Arabia).
  • Pack #2: Great Commanders Pack
    Lead your troops to victory with the Great Commanders Pack, including Tokugawa (Japan), Nader Shah (Persia)***, and Suleiman the Magnificent (Ottoman Empire)****.
  • Pack #3: Rulers of China Pack
    Establish some new dynasties with the Rulers of China Pack, including Yongle, Qin Shi Huang the Unifier, and Wu Zetian.
  • Pack #4: Rulers of the Sahara Pack
    Revisit the cradle of humanity with the Rulers of the Sahara Pack, including Ramses (Egypt), Ptolemaic Cleopatra (Egypt), King Sundiata Keita (Mali)****.
  • Pack #5: Great Builders Pack
    Rebuild the world better than ever with the Great Builders Pack, including Theodora (Byzantines)*****, Sejong (Korea)******, and Ludwig II (Germany).
  • Pack #6: Ruler of England Pack
    Fill out your growing collection of monarchs with the Rulers of England Pack, including Elizabeth I (England), Varangian Harald Hardrada (Norway), and Victoria (England).

The only Civilization game i’ve played is Civ V and that was a good while ago, I’ve been looking for an excuse to play it again but I’d rather not play with my friends who manage to get nukes before I’ve even unlocked gunpowder. Either I’m really bad or they’re just ridiculous.

If you’re interested, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is available on Steam now for just £4.99.
