Civilization VI's Gathering Storm Expansion brings Climate Change to the game 

Firaxis has officially revealed Civilization VI's next expansion, Gathering Storm, which is set to bring climate change to the game alongside nine new Civs and a multitude of new buildings, technologies and mechanics to the game.  

During the game, players will generate carbon by using fossil fuels and by otherwise impacting the game's environment, burning coal during the industrial revolution to the move towards renewable energy sources in the late-game, as each player's reserve of fossil fuels will inevitably run out, and the world's climate will eventually wreak havoc on coastal settlements. 

With these changes, resource wars will take on a new turn, as players may seek to conquer other nations to plunder their fossil fuel reserves, or conversely, take out the world's greatest polluters to help save their sinking settlements. 

Natural disasters are also set to become part of the game, with volcanic eruptions and earthquakes having the potential to damage cities heavily. The World Congress is also set to return, adding a wealth of new diplomatic options to the game. 

  Watch the announcement trailer for the second expansion to the award-winning Civilization VI coming to PC on February 14, 2019

 
Civilization VI's Gathering Storm Expansion will release on February 14th 2019. More information about this expansion will be released over the coming months, naming the game's planned Civs while shedding more light on the game's new and updated mechanics.

Yeah this game is a joke. Evidenced by the reviews on steam. Started off great but there new DLC and Expansion policies seriously ruined this game. Sucks because this game had a lot of potential but of course money and greed always ruins quality.

I don't care what this expansion has. It's $40. The base game is $60.Quote

I'll be honest. I like Civ VI, but the best Civ game has always been "current numbered entry -1 + DLC", which in this case is CIV V with Brave New World.

I like a lot of things about Civ VI, and I enjoyed how Rise and Fall changed things up. This new expansion feels like it will completely change the game, so I'd say £35 is worth it if you want to experience the new version of the game. This is a proper expansion, not a cheapo DLC pack.

TBH I don't know how I feel about the game's planned changes yet, but I look forward to seeing how it plays. I have over 100 hours in Civ VI already, but over 250 hours in Civ V.Quote

That's how most people feel but I don't. Civ V was always the best.

VI was fine. But there dlc practices are absolutely horrid. Just look at the Vikings Scenario or whatever they called it. 11% positive rating.Quote

One of my friends got into the game after Brave New World and I told him what the expansions changed in the game. He was flabbergasted by how big the changes were.

Even the idea of "Melee" Naval units was a gamechanger, as before that a great strategy was to create coastal cities, as navies could never take them without ground support or amphibious units.Quote
