As "Civilization 6" hits the shelves on Oct. 21, players will want to know the tips and tricks of the trade to help them conquer the planet. Early reviews of the highly anticipated turn-based, strategy game has already called the latest Civ iteration as equally enormous as its predecessors. Having reimagined several beloved features of the series, "Civilization 6" is poised to take its seat on Steam's most-played list.

Before players get ready to clear the shelves of "Civilization 6," however, here's everything they should expect from the upcoming Firaxis game. From new features like builders that expire after three turns, unstacked cities that are spread across tiles, longstanding fans as well as new initiates to the Civ franchise should be able to figure out the best way to win.

Tips and tricks:  Four victory conditions

First tip and trick: players need to understand the ways by which they can conquer the world. In "Civilization 6," there are four core victory conditions, namely: culture, domination, religion and science. As always in every Civilization game, they're pretty self-explanatory. To win in "Civilization 6," domination requires you to conquer every capital; science, to research technologies and establish space innovations; and cultural, to amplify tourism, initiate cultural and artistic finds.

Science victory conditions

"Civilization 6" introduces religion as a core condition, wherein players have to use holy sites and agents to get civilizations to convert to their faiths. Among these conditions in "Civilization 6," culture is always the hardest to do, because it requires players to accumulate more visitors than all other civs combined. The easiest victory to pull off, of course, is science, while religion and domination could be both tricky since they both require robust bases.

The next tip to winning in "Civilization 6" is choosing the science/Russia route. This is because Peter I (Peter the Great) allows players to open up trade routes pretty fast. Other options could be Arabia and Saladin, and Sumeria and Gilgamesh, according to Mashable Asia. Also remember that trade routes are players' best friends in "Civilization 6," because they're key to getting resources and mobility in the "Civilization 6" game.

Establishing your cities

Meanwhile, another tip and trick to winning in "Civilization 6" is to diversify cities by letting them pursue different tracks. This will allow players to be more well prepared and armed regardless of the circumstances, especially when players accidentally draw the ire of neighboring cities and civilizations and get drawn into war.
