    GREAT! And nice video!

    Maybe all the people portrayed are leaders you can choose from, so there are 3-5 per country.

    Or, my dream, the leaders change with the times... No more eternal 4000 year old leaders...

    Mathias Corvinus, probably. He was on the tomb, after all.

    EDIT: ... despite the hoax, I still think Corvinus should be the Hungarian leader. If Hungary is in the game after all.

    Sorry, but I think this is a fan's mash-up, not a genuine Firaxis/2K video. No voice-over (no Sean Bean?). More importantly, it appears to focus entirely on Hungarian history (conversion to Christianity, wars with the Mongols, dealings with the HRE and Ottomans, incorporation into Austria-Hungary, WW2, communist rule and liberation), which seems highly unlikely to me. But the clincher, to me, are the still images from CivBE trailers (see a few images here).

    Yes, this does appear to be a hoax. Well executed, but a hoax.

    I did!

    Looks like others found the source YouTube video. Interesting hoax.

    The fact that the video cannot be found on the real civ youtube channel even though the video claims to be from it, is a dead give away that the video is not legit. It is definitely a clever mash up of other videos (the Hungary video, the BE video etc).

    It's a WEIRD one: TOO MUCH emphasis put on Hungary (I don't mind it being a new civ, in fact I think I love the idea, but it's a strange choice for a trailer). And it reuses some scenes from the Rising Tide intro.

    I was going to say that the animation and character models didn't look good enough for what I expect from Firaxis in 2016. Also, doesn't fit with the style of the previous trailer and promotional material.

    I'm glad it's a hoax.

    the channel is a fake as well.

    expect the channel owner to get banned from YT pretty fast.

    It looks like everyone has figured it out, but just to officially confirm: this is totally 100% certified fake.
