Civilization 6 Video Shows Off English Civilization, Lead By Queen Victoria

A new Civilization 6 video has debuted the English civilization, led by Queen Victoria. The country is the third civilization to be revealed, after China (which was revealed in the initial trailer) and America, which will be led by President Theodore Roosevelt. There will most likely be more civilizations that will be revealed in the coming months, so these are by no means the only ones.

Fitting with their historical role, the English civilization can be very aggressive and expansionist, creating an empire that spreads throughout the world. However, they can also switch and go for a cultural victory through their museums and archeologists.

The Civilization 6 video also shows off a new unique building for the English, the Royal Navy Dockyard. The Dockyard allows the English to give bonuses to their ships (fitting, considering that for many years England had the most powerful navy in the world), including bonus speed and extra gold for ports on other continents.

The Dockyards can also build the Sea Dog, England’s unique sea unit. It can capture weaker ships and bully other, weaker naval units, presumably to make them stay out of your territory.

Also in the Civilization 6 video are the unique English land unit, the Redcoats. According to the video, the Redcoats are at their best when fighting away from their homeland, allowing England to gain a decisive edge in wars overseas. They can also disembark from ships without using a movement point.

The video also showed one notable change: the change from Queen Elizabeth the First to Queen Victoria. The change could be seen as obvious to many: while Queen Elizabeth was only king of England and Ireland (Scotland was its own kingdom up until the Acts of Union in 1707 that formed the United Kingdom and from that, Great Britain), Victoria was the first true Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

We’ll have to wait and see what other civilizations are eventually revealed, but each one can only build the anticipation for the game higher until it releases in October for the PC.
