    I would guess on announcement. At this point, things are technically still quiet on the (official) civ front.

    I mean who knows whether this is a code name or not, right?, but Vesuvius is seriously just a terrible name. Beyond the Sword. Gods and Kings. Brave New World. But Vez-souv-e-us? Yeah, no thanks. Feels a bit too random.

    Abbreviation would be a disaster too. Anyone want to play CivVIV? Or is is CiVVIV? Or even CIVVIV?

    Vesuvius is obviously a WIP name, not a final name.

    Ftr: here are whom I consider the likeliest candidates, side by side:


    Æthelflæd (Warrior queen of Mercia)

    Isabella of Castille (the famous Spanish monarch we all love to hate)
    Isabella.png

    Eleanor of Aquitaine (Queen Consort of France, probably the best visual match)

    Matilda di Canossa (Influentual countess of Tuscany)

    Cersei Lannister-Baratheon (First of her name, Queen of the Andals, Rhoynar and First Men)

    Yeah, that feels very much like the internal name for it, and the actual release will have a new name. As mentioned, all the other expansion names have been quite generic concepts, it would be very weird to have them name it after something so specific.

    I can just hope that Vesuvius symbolises natural disasters and random events. They would be nice.

    Also, 100 pages... Wow.

    Civ4 had the ability to enable an option to use any leader with any civ. It allowed for some wildly overpowered combinations if you matched the right leader abilities to the right unique units and unique buildings. Like terrifyingly overpowered.

    I wouldn't be suprised too, seeing as how Firaxis employees are sworn to completely secrecy. Some of them might have wanted to finally get word out about the next expansion. Plus the reddit thread claims it'll be released on Valentines Day next year, which is only 3 and a half months away.

    Within the next month for sure. Perhaps 1 or 2 weeks after the Switch release of Civ VI?

    Good point. It's most likely not a coincidence, that is named after an Italian volcano.

    So far we have the following clues:
    Dynamite -> Railroads? And/or Canals?
    Volcano -> Natural disasters?
    Vesuv -> Italy

    Well, we first need to assert the validity of the screencap before we draw any conclusions. I have no more doubts that the drawing depicts Eleanor of Aquitaine, however. (there are too many visual similarities to merely chalk it up to coincidence)

    And then we'll need to idenify who our Polynesian friend is...
