Civilization VI – Pirates First Look
The Pirates Scenario is a 1-4 player contest for treasure and glory on the high seas. Players will select one of four factions – Dread Pirate, Privateer, Swashbuckler and Hoarder – each with unique abilities that change up their playstyles. In addition to other factions, players will also have to deal with British, Spanish, French and Dutch navies who are determined to send them to Davy Jones’ Locker. The Pirates Scenario features new and updated artwork that adds a tropical feel to the game; it can be played on a unique handcrafted map or choosing a map script that provides a different layout each playthrough. The Firaxis team was deeply inspired by Sid Meier’s Pirates! – fans of the classic game will be thrilled to see how swashbuckling has been adapted for Civilization VI.
The Pirates Scenario is part of the upcoming slate of content in the October update, scheduled for this Thursday Oct. 22. The October game update is one of many free updates that are a part of the overall content roadmap for Civilization VI, available to anyone who owns the game.
