Civ 6 Xbox One, PS4 release announced, coming in November

A Civ 6 Xbox One and PS4 release was today announced during the PlayStation State of Play livestream by publisher 2K.

Already avaliable on Switch, Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 will be joined by a release on Xbox One and PS4 from 22 November, marking the first time since 2008 that the franchise will be available on either platform.

The base Civ 6 game will be available for $79.95 AUD on both platforms, with a separate Civ 6 Expansion Bundle available for an additional $49.95 AUD. Here’s what the expansion bundle contains:

  • Civilization VI: Rise and Fall: Adds new Golden Ages and Dark Ages, a new city Loyalty system, and Governors who can be stationed in players’ cities, giving players new choices, strategies and challenges;
  • Civilization VI: Gathering Storm: The most successful expansion in franchise history, introduces players to an active planet where geology and climatology present unique new challenges;
  • 18 Additional Civilization Leaders: From the expansions, choose from some of history’s most renowned leaders to help guide your civilization through the ages, each bringing unique bonuses, buildings, units and more.

The above Expansion Bundle will also be available on Nintendo Switch from 22 November, again priced at $49.95 AUD.

“For Firaxis, having Civilization VI launch on Xbox and PlayStation gives us the opportunity to bring strategy games to new audiences, some of whom may never have played a strategy game before,” said Ed Beach, Lead Designer of Civilization VI.

“The team at Firaxis has been hard at work to make Civilization VI the best game possible and we look forward to welcoming new players into our community.”

Civilization 6 is currently available on Windows PC, Mac, Switch and iOS. It heads to Xbox One and PS4 on 22 November.
