Civilization 6 is coming to Xbox One this year, and so are the expansions

What you need to know

  • Civilization 6 is coming to consoles.
  • The game is releasing on November 22, 2019.
  • The DLC will be available as a separate purchase.

When it comes to isometric real-time strategy games it doesn't come much better than the Civilization series by Sid Meier. Now on the sixth major game in the franchise, CIV 6 is finally coming to consoles on November 22, 2019.

The game has been around for the PC and the Switch for quite some time now and we console players often get stripped-down versions of Civilization games. This one looks like the full version though and even the DLC is coming to consoles —albeit in a separate purchase — which is almost unheard of.

It will be interesting to see if Civ 6 will be keyboard and mouse compatible as well as for controllers. Civ was made for the sword and board so it makes sense to allow us to use keyboard and mouse on consoles but they may have changed things around too much.

  • Finally! Now they just need to release it through the Microsoft Store as a UWP. This would be amazing as a Play Anywhere title!
  • Awesome. Can't wait.
  • coming to consoles? We already have it on Switch for almost an year.
  • As much as I look forward for this release, I wonder if the Xbox One's Jaguar CPU will handle the load of running such a complex game.
  • Love and still play CivRev; wonder how this will compare for ease of use/play...
