    Another article, from an unusual source:

    Amongst the nuggets of information in this one are details on the rebuilt AI and the approach to the UI design:

    Not sure what I think of this new game. There is too much to learn. With all of this talk about the time of day, they should add seasons and weather.

    Italian news site Bits and Chips has a short article, citing sources which claims Civilization VI will have "a solid DirectX 12 backend, and [...] will utilize DX12 advanced features more than any other title":

    Major preview feature. New screens, looks like new leaders (Teddy Roosevelt). I'm sure there will be a flood of new features. Likely a NDA expired at 1500 BST today.

    Sample quote:

    The barbarians are at the gates. They’re not here to kick the gates down and storm the city though; instead, they retreat, in the direction of the camp that spawned them.

    “You might want to send a warrior after those barbarian scouts,” Firaxis’ Pete Murray advises, watching the screen over my shoulder. “They’ll fetch a raiding party if they manage to get home.”

    That’s new. It’s the tip of the iceberg as far as changes go, but it’s an illustrative example of what the early stages of this game are all about. Civilization VI [official site], at this stage of its development, is host to the most reactive AI that I can remember in the series’ long history. Lead designer Ed Beach and his team are building a Civ game that they hope will pry long-time players out of their established comfort zones, and a too-brief 60 turns with the game last week showed plenty of evidence that they’ll achieve that goal.

    End quote

    Another new hands-on feature from today. Here's a quote from Dennis Shirk:

    "One thing we are doing is we’re not gimping the builder anymore. Builders typically went tall in Civ V. We’re now, with local happiness, you can actually have a wide empire and be a builder at the same time. You may not be super technically proficient, but you’re going to super cultural and deep into that civics tree at the same time.”

    Local happiness means tall and wide viable
    World Congress not in base game. Most other BNW features are
