    We've been kind of lucky on this front. Comet/small asteroid impacts in historical times have taken place in remote locations, particularly Siberia. A comet or especially an asteroid striking in a heavily populated area could be disastrous.

    One would hope so. Forest fires are integral to the health of the forest.

    Hopefully because there's an actual disease/pandemic Game Mode coming later.

    Disease/pandemic is probably best new addition if there is going to be. Like we saw in this first apocalypse mode --- this new mods wont be large mechanic's ... so probably nothing will come out of them to be really interesting --- but pleague are already in game, they just need to be moved and balanced to regular games.

    It appears that it will unlock at 12am EDT rather than a rolling unlock.

    Possible comet impact about 12,800 years ago.
    Spoiler Younger Dryas impact hypothesis :
    The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis or Clovis comet hypothesis posits that fragments of a large (more than 4 kilometers in diameter), disintegrating asteroid or comet struck North America, South America, Europe, and western Asia about 12,800 years ago.[1][2] Multiple airbursts/impacts produced the Younger Dryas (YD) boundary layer (YDB), depositing peak concentrations of platinum, high-temperature spherules, meltglass, and nanodiamonds, forming an isochronous datum at more than 50 sites across about 50 million km² of Earth’s surface. Some scientists have proposed that this event triggered extensive biomass burning, a brief impact winter, the Younger Dryas abrupt climate change, contributed to extinctions of late Pleistocene megafauna, and resulted in the end of the Clovis culture.[3]

    It's also one of the less probable hypotheses concerning the Bronze Age Collapse.

    There’ll be an accompanying patch that, among other things, fixes the pantheon exploit. I’m not sure what (if any) free content will come with the patch

    does anyone have an idea on if this patch is dropping with the DLC at 12am EST? or would that be a staggered release with that?

    The Civ Twitter just used Maize in a corny pun, so I guess that's probably the official name of the new resource.
