    It's here.


    "Treassure fleets" (UA). Can form fleets earlier. Extra yield from trade routes between continents.
    "El Escorial" (Phillip II UA). Units get combat bonus (swordsman gets +4, might be era dependent) against players of another religion. Inquisitors remove religion an extra time.
    Conquistador (UU): Combat bonus (+10) when tiled with religious unit. Converts cities upon capture if conquistador is adjacent.
    Mission (UI): Provides faith. Bonus faith when on different continent and bonus science when next to campus.

    Lol that is some serious religion focused powerhouse :D

    Is it me or it seemed like a neverending string of bonuses for Spain?

    It looks interesting. Expansionist and a strong religious game.

    Fleets? Does that imply there is no 1-unit per tile for naval units? Interesting.

    i think this is the first time we hear from fleets, no? Are they unlocked earlier than corps?

    Edit: and again, another naval bonus. They really want it to be important for some reason.

    Yes, there are fleets, and for land units there are armies and corps.

    I also believe this is the first time we've truly seen that mechanic (although I'm not sure).

    Very cool! I have no controversies or problems with this civ.

    I love how much deeper and more interesting civ6 civs are when compared with civ5. Civ5 Spain had what, bonus to lucky discovery of wonders and two very mediocre units. This one has bonuses to intercontinental trade, religious warfare, religious conversion and inquisition, missions and adjacency boosts, fleet merging...

    There are also many interesting details in this video.

    No. Fleets and Corps are the same thing

    It's a new mechanic they have barely talked about in detail, you can combine units together to form corps and armies and this applies to naval units too.

    As you saw, the video showed the two ships combine into each other.

    I believe that the combined units are stronger single unit but weaker if you had 3 of those (so 1 fleet is weaker than 2 ships, but stronger than a single ship)

    Agreed, I hope Phillip is just as zealous as Civ 4's Isabella :mischief:

    I suspect that fleets are analogous to corps for land units.

    Did you notice that when talking about the trade routes, it's a normal (land) trader? Not a special trade ship?

    I believe we've known that for a while now, that there is no seperation of land and sea trade units.

    I must've missed that you could also combine land units. Thought it was just unit + support unit. Shame on me :)

    Anyway... ARMADA!!
