The Gathering Storm features a long checklist of other new additions, including 18 new units, 9 new world leaders, 9 new technologies, and 10 new civics. These are all nice little bonuses, but Gathering Storm’s world congress and natural-disaster system are robust enough to make Civilization feel fresh. The Gathering Storm adds new layers to Civilization VI’s incredibly deep strategy system, but taming the planet remains far from simple.

Civilization VI told a straightforward story of the consequences of your actions. Fail to keep your people happy and they would put down their hammers and raise pitchforks. Be rude to the other leaders and they would soon refuse to deal with you. Beyond...

Gathering Storm is a useful evolution of Civilization 6. Firaxis has made smart choices in addressing global warming, diplomacy, and its own sagging late-game. But even when it’s all added together, I don’t believe it warrants a price tag of $40. As much as I love this game, and as much as I don’t expect to be loved back, I do expect to be at least respected.

For Civ fans, the future has been set in stone since October 2016: no matter how good Civilization VI was at launch, it wouldn't be done until it had gotten two expansions. Well, now it's got them.Building on the content introduced in 2018's Rise &...

It's weird playing Civilization VI and having it echo real life. As I'm playing North America is locked in one of the coldest weeks it's had in recent memory, and on the opposite side of the globe Australia is sizzling. Regardless what anyone says,...

The newest expansion for Civilization VI, Gathering Storm, is a big one. It's an expansion that isn't afraid to try seriously new things, and even when those things don't all work perfectly, veteran Civ players will likely appreciate the...

Es gibt wenig, was mir an Gathering Storm nicht gefallen hat. Der Weltkongress schien mir wenig interessant – klar, die Idee, diplomatisch zu taktieren und seine Ränke zu schmieden hat was, aber wir spielen immer noch gegen eine KI, die auch nach...

Los desastres naturales son un gran acierto, le otorgan una vida y realismo al mapa como no se había visto en la saga. Además el problema del cambio climático y el riesgo de ver tus costas sumergidas en los dominios de Poseidón hace que te plantees como...
