    I believe they are being added to Gathering Storm, while the Solar Flare and Comet Impact are in the Apocalypse Mode.

    My mistakes, but on the French page it clearly says: "Le monde entre dans une ère apocalyptique", which literally translates by "The world enters an apocalyptic era", so slighty disappointed (would have loved that if we pollute too much everybody is in some sort of super dark ages making anything way more difficult). My mistake, but it was an honest mistake (even if I'm still concerned by the choice of words. French translators of Civ 6 have a reputation of being quite incompetent and do thing quite literally, so translating "apocalyptic state" by "apocalyptic era" seems quite disturbing... but I'm overthinking for sure).

    When they say "meteor shower" disasters what are they meaning here? Like an animation of meteors burning in the upper atmosphere.Just a visual like you see like the northern lights in game? Or are they actually going to have lame meteorite impact disasters in the base game?

    They will have impacts in the base game, though the big guy is only for apocalypse mode

    Meteor Shower's and Comet impacts look very different. The big city destruction is the Comet Impact. There was a screenshot of a Meteor shower somewhere, it looks like it just generated something looking like a iron deposit on the map.

    Yeah, I'm guessing it will be something like pillages the tile, but perhaps adds iron to it after the fact.

    I don't know if I'm going to like the "apocalypse mode" or whatever but the solar storm sfx look awesome.

    I'm guessing meteor showers will be very rare, or will only happen with disaster intensity at 3 or 4.

    Pas de probleme ;)

    Thats the main question for me. Could I attack him without declaring war. Rock Band spam from early game will be super annoying.

    Will there be a livestream like the ones before the release of Gathering Storm?

    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but why are they missing this opportunity to implement the plague mechanics from the Black Death scenario? I'm not even referring to the current pandemic, just comparing the death toll of viral diseases (billions) vs. comet impacts (0? not counting dinosaurs).

    It was on Twitter from Amanda. But it seems to have been changed to Thursday.

    It's been speculated that the meteor shower will generate an iron resource. Do we have any speculation/support for forest fires giving a benefit? Increased tile fertility, etc. Also, will the forest regenerate on its own after the disaster has run its course?
