Civilization VI – First Look at Ambiorix of Gaul
Last week, we announced the third DLC for Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass – the Byzantium & Gaul Pack – will be launching on September 24. Today we’re revealing a First Look at Ambiorix of Gaul.
Gaul’s “Hallstatt Culture” ability allows Mines to provide a minor adjacency bonus for all districts, Culture Bomb unowned territory and grant additional Culture. Specialty districts cannot be built next to the City Center and do not receive adjacency from other districts. Ambiorix’s unique ability is the “King of the Eburones,” where he gains additional Culture based on unit cost when a non-civilian is trained. Melee, anti-cavalry, and ranged units receive bonus Combat Strength for every adjacent combat unit. The Gaesatae unique unit replaces the Warrior; it is more expensive to train but receives additional Combat Strength when fighting stronger units and district defenses. His unique district is the Oppidum, which is cheaper and available earlier than the Industrial Zone and unlocks the Apprenticeship technology when constructed. It is defensible, offering its own ranged attack, and receives a major adjacency bonus from Quarries and strategic resources.
Content is being delivered on a bimonthly basis until March 2021, and the third DLC – Byzantium & Gaul Pack – will launch on September 24, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
