Link to video.
That part of the book was parodying that scene. I haven't seen it yet but I have learned a bit from pop culture osmosis.
I think that last part bears emphasis, though. Some Civs have no correlation. Venice at least has an apparent connection, even if "off."
Vancouver was seen in the new featurette. It has only been seen in Maelstrom's screenshots prior to the featurette being released. Anyone still think it's a hoax?
No, it's just pessimistic people who want it to be a hoax.
Cyan and Gold were the Imperial colours...
I want to believe it's a hoax because I wanted Hungary as one of the 2.
Not really thrilled about Venice, and it's probably the first civ that I am not excited about playing. I'm not saying it's a poor choice, but it just doesn't excite me in the least.
Same here, but with the Shoshone. I would've preferred the Chinook, so I want it to be fake, but it seems pretty likely that it is not a hoax.
I'm fine with the choice of Shoshone despite preferring others. I'm just worried about the implementation. From what we've seen they are based almost entirely on the Shoshone post-US contact, and that is a recipe for disaster from a historical point of view.
As if historical accuracy has ever been a deciding factor at Firaxis...
It's just a name given to a Native American-based civ in the game. If you choose to play as them, you start out in the year 4000bc. If you play against them, you can wipe them out by 800bc. What does either of those has to do with what took place in real life?? If you want it to be more historical, go build or play a scenario, which are great for things like that.
Another argument against a hoax is a new German video. It confirms ability to buy Industrial+ units with faith using a reformation belief. So, the person who made a Comanche screen at least had access to the preview build.
Just in case anyone still has any doubts
Regarding authenticity, the World Congress featuretted mentioned Vancouver, which was also seen in the screenies.
