    This is Civilization Immortal for mobile phones, a hybrid between fortnite minecraft moba and civ, winning match wins city. You can also buy it for science, culture, gold and Firaxis Diamonds, all of which are bought with real currency. Leaders shout hilarious memes, for example "trololo" or "keep calm and carry on". Every female leader is drawn in anime style and in sexist clothes. The influx of Chinese mobile addicts makes this spin off eventually replace civ series until heat death of universe when everybody dies and is free from torment.




    You can also use firaxis diamonds to make advertisement algorithms more and more personalized for your tastes, but only if you synchronize the account with Facebook.

    Boston marathon ehh. Not to stereotype, but facts are facts. And is already mentioned above. Ethiopians do very well in marathons such as these. I think a fairly high chance we see Ethiopia. Of course Kenyans are great runners as well, better than Ethiopians.

    While I don't disagree that Ethiopia are likely to feature if this is an expansion or new Civ DLC, I am about 99.9% certain that the name "runner" doesn't allude to a national/racial stereotype, however accurate it may be.

    It's more likely to be a nod to the theme of the DLC. The 'Blade Runner' suggestion is a bit more plausible to me, or it could refer to a new unit.

    No, not at all. I believe, your placehoder theory is quite appropriate.

    If it does have anything to do with the actual DLC, though, I don't believe it hints toward any content.
    Possibly more with a technical aspect of the upcomming DLC?

    Hmmm ... it's called, "runner", not "sprinter". ... then Boston and the marathon ...
    Wasn't there some theory about a prolonged sequel of smaller DLCs instad of the one big, last expansion?
    Wouldn't this fit quite nicely to the allegory of a marathon runner?

    Not that I would prefere this outcome over a 3rd expansion, don't get me wrong here. It's just me freely associating.

    Well, I am not native English, and for me "runner" means mostly "show runner"

    Editions are made with packages, not by making new DLC apps and depots.

    That's kind of answer I was hoping for ...

    So its either DLC or expansions than .... I would surely put my money on expansions, because you cant now start new DLC cicle because you would need at least 4 or 5 of them to put all missing civ's, and its taking too long for just DLC with one or two new civs.

    I guess we can say there is almost no chance at this point we wont get some new content for Civ6. Only question is how much, when, and how it would be put together.

    Maybe they plan on releasing an update and then revealing a new expansion

    This is total speculation, but here's my (provisional) interpretation of Runner: it's a nickname for Ed Beach, and this will be an expansion that has his fingerprints all over it. It will fill out the game like the last Civ V expansion did. Possible features include ideologies, a new Enlightenment era, overhaul of trade system, colonization mechanics, and economic victory.

    From a technical standpoint, expansions are DLC.

    I believe people said that the number of achievements was closer to the previous small DLC like Australia or SE Asia right?

    If so doesn't a single civ plus a scenario seem the most likely? Maybe Ethiopia plus a racing themed scenario? First to circumnavigate the world?

    Just mouse-over the tile and the tool-tip will tell you. ;)

    Like Willow Brook said, it's probably just an allusion to Ed Beach running the Marathon and nothing more. After all, "falconchase" was a reference to Eagle Pursuit and had nothing to do with any of that DLC's content.
