8/3 Video Megathread.

  • FilthyRobot confirmed that Wednesday, August 3rd at 10 AM EST is when the NDA lifts and he can release video content.


    - He has four hours worth of content (25 to 30Gigs), that he has from the event that hw is going to  start releasing on Wed.  It's not clear if he is going to release it all on that day or several days.

    - The 4 hour event was part of a worldwide series of events that are all due to be released on Wed...  Singapore, Germany, Korea and others.  Not only youtubers, but other Media reporting that is all part  of this...

    - Filthy wanted to get a better feel for the game core and some comparision and contrast with Civ5,  as well as  Some restrictions on later  game things that are still in the balance phases and will change before Oct, so he mostly focused on the early game.

    - He had three games/starts with three different civs, with 3 different strategies that he used his 4 hours to work the game good.

    - Due to an Airline screwup, Filthy was able to go to dinner with Quill18. Arumba, Joe Sullivan and another 2k PR guy.  They talked Civ 5 and 6 for several hours and networking.

    - Filthy might have convinced Quill and Arumba to participate in a MP game, either before or after release.

    - Joe Sullivan did hint that there might be a MP event pre-release, which speaks to more MP support potentially.  He  is excited about the MP prospects for Civ6 that was not there in Civ5.  'Should be really, really cool'...

    - still awaiting answers back about questions about things that he is wanting to include in his footage...


    FilthyRobot discusses his trip here: https://www.twitch.tv/filthyrobot/v/80808787



    We might want to put all links to these vid drops into this one thread...  enough for everyone to dig up and post....

    edit: changed title now that it's here.

    Civilization 6,  the next game in the landmark strategy series, is coming out on Oct. 21. The game builds on Civ V and  features a whole slew of new systems, from Districts to Builders to an entirely revamped Civics system. We here at iDigitalTimes had the opportunity to sit down with a playable build of the game’s first 150 turns. Playing as  Japan’s Hojo Tokimune, we learned a huge amount about Firaxis’s largest effort yet, a game that welds the best of Civ V with the best of Civ IV while adding a lot of stuff that’s entirely new.  We’ve already talked about Civics and the tech tree. Next up: City States and Districts.

     


    Districts



    2KGMKT_CivilizationVI_Screenshot_Preview_Brazil_3Districts_02

    Districts in 'Civilization 6'

    Firaxis Games


    The  much-ballyhooed Districts, the “unstacking of cities,” are presented as the signature feature of Civilization 6, the feature that truly sets it apart from its predecessors. Through Districts, cities are no longer monolithic; you can’t just build everything in the city center. To build science, commercial or military buildings, you need to spend the time and production to construct dedicated Districts around a city. Then, you can build the related improvements in these Districts, each of which takes up a full tile in the city’s radius.

    Truth be told, the District system doesn’t matter that much in the early game, since the first round of improvements can be built in the city center. By the time you’re in the Classical Age, though, you’ll need to start slowly specializing your cities—and those Districts help you get bonuses toward techs and Civics, among other things. The effects of Districts toward specialization will be profound, but they all have a cost—the loss of a tile that could otherwise be productive. Of course, each District grants its own bonuses based on placement. Districts are clearly going to be a cornerstone of the strategy of Civ 6. Determining a District’s placement, and how you specialize your cities—or if you try to make one amazing metropolis that has it all—will take up a good deal of your strategic thought in the game.

     


    City States


    The way City States are handled is one of the most obvious and largest departures from Civ V—and the new approach in Civ 6 is a tremendous and refreshing improvement. Here’s the key: Under the new system, influence with City States doesn’t decay. It can only be supplanted by other civilizations. Civilizations curry favor with City States through sending Envoys, which can be earned in a variety of ways—primarily through Civics and by fulfilling City State quests. These envoys earn a player influence, which bring a variety of bonuses—some military, some cultural, among others. The player with the most influence will become the Suzerain of the City State. The City State will then be a true ally, lending a bonus unique to that City State and fighting alongside its master. Best of all, suzerain status can change freely—even mid-war.

    Civ 6  has a lot of other cool things going for it, even just on a first playthrough. Trade routes, military, diplomacy, even the map itself all feel dramatically improved and refined since Civ V. The new game comes out on Oct. 21, and  I am genuinely, truly excited. It feels like a new Civ game and an old one at the same time, in the best possible way.

    And the Lord God said, 'Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever, we must send him forth.' Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
    ~The Conclave Bible
