    I'd normally agree, but in the live stream he literally said something to the effect of "now let's introduce you to one of our new districts, the dam."

    I am sad about British Museums.

    Looks similar to depictions of mounds by the Cahokia people.

    I think it's more likely the trailer is showing this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/557_Constantinople_earthquake

    The old Hagia Sophia, yes which was then rebuilt into its much larger form that remains today by Isidore of Miletus (employed by Justinian, obviously).

    Also, just food for though, the leaks maybe extremely accurate, but based on how our "source" has gathered them, it could be visual cues, in which case they could easily be misinterpreted. Hungary's crown is this:
    Spoiler :


    The crown was made in the Byzantine empire and it was stylized after one of the many crowns worn by Byzantine emperors. For example in this depiction of John Komnenos:
    Spoiler :


    Conspiracy theory: Byzantium is actually the new civ, not Hungary.

    Hmm that probably means it is the last expansion, but then maybe we'll get a little bonus content down the line (ala XCom 2)

    I hope so. All I want out of this expansion is Byzantium.

    Bridges spanning coast could be a district as well. Sort of the opposite of canals.

    So they decided to go a little bit RNG. Great, you can choose the intensity of disasters.
    And ski resort district and Inca hint make me think mountains are now workable.
    Anyway, I didn't expect there will be so much new stuff. Super excited.

    Gosh.. here goes all of my spare time until well into Spring 2019.

    Really feels like that GS expansion is a big sweet punch into our modern realities (with some weird gameplay twists) while hooking us again to hybrid variety & even **9** more Leaders.

    Five Districts:

    1. Dam - confirmed per Pingala screen shot
    2. Canal - confirmed per Pingala screen shot
    3. Blue Water (Science?) District - probable
    4. Unique Commercial Hub - speculative
    5. Unique Government Plaza - speculative

    Another thing I forgot to mention I'm hyped about: plate tectonics! I hate the way Civ6 randomly generates continents, so this makes me super excited.

    The idea of Christina leading Sweden is as nonsensical to me as Roxelana and the Ottomans, so I'm very much hoping it's false...

    Looks like the coastal barrier seen in the trailer, probably helps with sea rising

    I don't mind the price tag since we are getting so much new content. This expansion is essentially 2 expansions worth of content rolled up into 1.

    I'm thinking that ski resort is a district. It doesn't look fancy enough to be a wonder but on a mountain it can't be built by a builder.

    Just got an e-mail from Green man gaming and they are doing a 20% promo on the expansion.

    That or builders can move on mountains now. Remember we've also seen a railroad with a tunnel.

    Edit: By the way, WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT RAILROADS BEING BACK????

    "Cooler Maps" might actually be my #1 takeaway from all of this.
