    As @TreVor_ish said, it's Kublai Khan. I don't think the developers would go that way, especially since Genghis Khan is already in the game. :p

    I am pretty sure she meant Kublai Khan, but typed the wrong name.

    Has it been confirmed Kublai will be leading China? I assume they will be leading Mongolia for sure and maybe China as well, like Eleanor. Since the website states that you need Rise and Fall (containing the Mongolia civ) to play as the new alternate leader

    He'll for sure lead Mongolia. I hope it will be China as well.

    Let's hope they fix some of the terrible bugs in the game - it's bad enough on PC but on the PS4 it is literally unplayable past turn 200

    Who knows? Maybe he'll have Marco Polo as a Unique Governor focused on Economic boosts.

    Sorry, meant Kublai as that's what's in the Readme I linked to. :mischief: The China part is speculation at this point.

    I should point out that day is a holiday in America, so it's not likely they'll release anything on that day. They'll most likely release something on Tuesday the 19th.

    I had a similar question to that to but then again it's a Federal Holiday so governmental buildings and services will be closed. That doesn't mean businesses like Firaxis will not post a video.

    It's not a holiday in Canada, Great Britain, France, etc., so I don't really agree with you here. Plus, if we consider the holiday as a benefit, not many people in America will be working on that holiday, so more people could buy it and play with it considering they have more time to play.

    Well we won't be able to play with any new content on the holiday. Just the January update video will most likely be on that day now which now I'll be able to watch live.

    I think it's more likely he'll get a Unique Govt. Plaza (Shangdu) instead of gettting another leader that comes with a unique governor. Plus I don't think we'd get a replacement Great person just to make him a governor.
