The hit 4X video game "Civilization 6" had just received its Fall 2016 update. Fans should rejoice as the update brings bug fixes, game balances, multiplayer maps, new scenarios, and a lot more, for a more immersive and enjoyable gaming experience.

Fall Update Changes

The "Civilization 6" update brings support to DirectX 12 for AMD and NVIDIA Maxwell cards or later. The Logitech ARX is now also supported through the latest update.

Multiplayer maps have also been added to "Civilization 6." Thanks to the update, players can now play through the "Four-Leaf Clover" and "Six-Armed Snowflake" maps. The first one accommodates four players, while the second one welcomes six. These are accessible on both online and offline modes. The maps require players to move to the center, causing conflict among "Civilization 6" gamers.

The new update also brings a new scenario to "Civilization 6." Called "Cavalry and Cannonades," this scenario reduces unit maintenance costs and also eliminates the strategic resource requirements. This gives the goal to acquire the largest territory within 50 turns. Players would then start with a larger army and additional starting techs.

New features have also been added to the gameplay of "Civilization 6" after the update. Additional notifications, more Hotkey support, visual cues, and Dan Quayle ranking are just some of the minor ones.

The major improvements in "Civilization 6" include Time Defeat, which occurs when the player runs out of time. However, this feature is disabled when Score Victory is available. Also, one of the most glaring holes in the gameplay is the ability to rename cities, which has already been solved in the latest update.

Future DLCs

While the "Civilization 6" Fall update brought many fixes, improvements and new features, downloadable content would be arriving soon to the game. The next major DLC would be bringing in the most requested civs by the fans.

These requests include the often overlooked Southeast Asian civs and more Native American ones. The Korean empire is also noticeably missing in "Civilization 6." With the world history being so rich and colorful, the game definitely still has a lot of time and estate to cover.
