Civ 6 gets a year-long Season Pass in New Frontier

Civilization 6 will get a Season Pass later this month that will deliver new content on a bi-monthly basis for the next year.

Called New Frontier, the Season Pass contains eight new civilizations, nine leaders, six new game modes and more. It launches 22 May and will continue to distribute said content through until March 2021.

“It’s been four years since we first announced Civilization VI, and the support from fans and players has been overwhelming,” said Ed Beach, franchise lead designer at Firaxis Games. “After two giant expansions in Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm, four years’ worth of balance updates and more, Civilization VI has grown into the flagship title for the series.”

“We’re very excited to be adding even more content to Civilization VI, ensuring longtime players and franchise newcomers have something fresh to look forward to in the months to come,” added Anton Strenger, lead game designer at Firaxis Games. “By delivering new content on a regularly scheduled basis, we’ll have more opportunities than ever with the New Frontier Pass to connect with our community as we actively develop and deliver content.”

The New Frontier Season Pass is priced at $59.95 AUD or $63.95 NZD and will be available for Civilization 6 on Windows PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. A mobile version of the pass will arrive later in 2020.
