A new pass for Civilization VI has been announced by 2K Games. The Leader Pass as it’s known will bring twelve new leaders and six updated historical figures to the game. The pass will be spread across six new DLC drops that will start releasing later this month.

Originally released in 2016, Civ 6 is the latest in the long-running RTS series and allows people to take on the roles of specific figures throughout history, whilst creating their own path. The game has been released on PC, mobile, and consoles but the latest DLC will only launch for PC, Mac, and iOS players.

The Leaders Pass is made up of six content drops that will be released from 21st November for the next few months. The final pack is expected in March 2023. For those who have purchased (or will pick up) the Civilization VI Anthology, the content will come at no additional cost.

Each leader arrives with a suite of new or updated abilities alongside inventive agendas that’ll change the way you play. Here is what’s currently scheduled to be included in the expansion:

  • Great Negotiators Pack (Pack #1): Coming November 21, 2022test your diplomacy skills with the Great Negotiators Pack, including Abraham Lincoln (United States), Queen Nzinga Mbande (Kongo), and Sultan Saladin (Arabia);
  • Great Commanders Pack (Pack #2): Lead your troops to victory with the Great Commanders Pack, including Tokugawa (Japan), Nader Shah (Persia), and Suleiman the Magnificent (Ottoman Empire)4;
  • Rulers of China Pack (Pack #3): Establish some new dynasties with the Rulers of China Pack, including Yongle, Qin Shi Huang the Unifier, and Wu Zetian;
  • Rulers of the Sahara Pack (Pack #4): Revisit the cradle of humanity with the Rulers of the Sahara Pack, including Ramses (Egypt), Ptolemaic Cleopatra (Egypt), King Sundiata Keita (Mali);
  • Great Builders Pack (Pack #5): Rebuild the world better than ever with the Great Builders Pack, including Theodora (Byzantines), Sejong (Korea), and Ludwig II (Germany);
  • Ruler of England Pack (Pack #6): Fill out your growing collection of monarchs with the Rulers of England Pack, including Elizabeth I (England), Varangian Harald Hardrada (Norway), and Victoria – Age of Steam (England).

Fans have been clamouring for new Civ news for a while so it looks like 2K have been listening. It is a shame that the Leader Pack hasn’t been announced for the console versions, but we suspect this will come later down the line.

Civilization VI is out now for PC, Mac, iOS, Switch, Xbox One, and PS4.
