Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy series where players attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. The latest entry in the franchise, Civilization VI, offers new ways to engage with the world: cities now physically expand across the map; actions help boost technology and civics research, and competing leaders pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as players race to achieve victory.
