Civilization VI is the latest installment in the acclaimed franchise. Civilization was originally created by legendary designer Sid Meier back in 1991. The series consists of many turn-based strategy games in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. You must lead a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age while dealing with all of the challenges that accompany advancement.
A few days ago, 2K Games announced that Civilization VI was coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It's already available on PC and Nintendo Switch. You can preorder the game for $60 through the Microsoft Store, but it's expected to launch on November 22. There's also an Expansion Bundle available for $50.
Civilization VI features Xbox One X enhancements and should look great on the system. It's unclear what the resolution and frame rate is at the moment. Hopefully, the game will run at 60 frames per second at close to native 4K rendering. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
When Windows Central reviewed Civilization VI over a year ago, Jen Karner said that it "delivers a nearly flawless... experience that gives you everything you already love about the Civilization series, while adding new and interesting facets."
