    Unfortunately, I don't think we'll get substantially more information today than this date we already know.
    Maybe the expansion's real name, if "Vesuvius" is just a working title. (Or is "Gathering Storms" confirmed as well?)

    Curse you, spoilers!

    A lot of that is high population growth combined with poor economic policy and no jobs. This has always happened in particular regions. The difference today is it's a lot easier to migrate than centuries past. In the past those people would have just died from starvation or disease.

    I expect new policies that are related to handling natural disasters.

    They have to reveal something today to justify a marketing stunt on this level, IMO. The expansion name and a couple of headline features, at least, even if no actual Civs. I can't recall the R&F reveal but I don't think any Civs were named in the press release, but most of the main features were.

    otherwise well, it's basically the biggest troll since the first Harry Potter movie :lol:

    Those tornados are genuinely scary, at least for one living in a tornado-prone area.

    But:
    They would have to change their animal-friendly policy for this. Even scout dogs and cavalry horses get to run away from battle. :p

    Well, damn. Those are all very convincing. I don't like how they've done Eleanor's hair though.

    Not going to lie, this is one of my favourite small details in Civ VI.

    I like to imagine my soldiers adopted the dogs after killing the scouts :mischief:

    Why Kupe? Instead of an actual historical Maori leader? They didn't want to offend people? Or wanted a leader without the facial tattoos?

    Maybe to meet the requirement of at least 2 leaders we can complain about? :p
