Civilization VI Science Guide

There are different types of victories in Civilization 6, however, what we will be discussing today is Science. In order to win in such a manner, you need to be the first one to build a colony on Mars, which means you need to focus on space programs in the modern era.

  • Launch a satellite into space – Earth Satellite project
  • Land a human on the moon – Moon Landing project
  • Establish a colony on Mars – Build Reactor, Habitation, and Hydroponics modules

In order to launch a satellite, research Rocketry on the Technology Tree.  Also, create Spaceport district in your cities. From there, work on the Satellite project from the Production Menu. You will also need to land a man on the moon but for that, you first need to Research Satellites on the Technology Tree.

You can start the Launch Moon Landing from any Spaceport in your cities.

  • Research Robotics on the Technology Tree
  • Start the Launch Mars Habitation project from a Spaceport.
  • Research Nanotechnology on the Technology Tree

To win this way you need to be aware of the world around and adapt accordingly. You not only need to keep an eye on your own civilization but keep track of diplomacy, war, religion, and natural resources from other civilizations.
