    Absolutely pumped for heroes. Also looks like new Great People will be within established types.

    Well that sounds like a pretty fun game mode. Closest thing we'll get to the Holy Grail War of the Fate universe within Civ I reckon

    Awesome! If my eyes don’t deceive me it looks like we’re getting Rumi (medieval Writer), Margaret Mead (atomic Scientist) and Ibn Khaldun as new great people, and they confirmed we’re getting more representation from the underrepresented regions of the world in that regard.

    EDIT: based on civilopedia placement, Ibn Khaldun is definitely a scientist. Presumably, from either the medieval or renaissance eras.

    i wonder how they trained the AI to take care of their hero , otherwise this will be only interesting for multiplayer. still i like the idea will definitely go for all the heroes at least once

    Notice how the slinger kill actually gave the Archery tech to Babylon (they were researching Pottery). Maybe Babylon's ability is that their Eureka's can trigger twice?

    Heroes seem like a fun addition! I wonder if their combat strength scales at all as the era goes on

    Heroes looks really good, I’m impressed with the new art and the variety of heroes included.

    Looking forward to the Babylon first look and soundtrack reveals!

    Eh, they might've pre-researched Archery to a certain point, and then used the Eureka to finish it, I do that all the time. Not saying you're definitely wrong, but we'll have to wait and see the First Look.

    Babylon UU, Ancient era of course, and it's not a Warrior, Slinger, Archer or Spearman: UUBab.png

    It looks fun, but complex enough that I will be surprised if the AI knows how to use it effectively.

    Babylon might be OP, if whatever they did there is spammable.

    Looks like were getting Anshan as possibly the Babylon CS replacement.

    Heroes looks pretty fun tho, and if Babylon's ability is triggering eurekas twice, that could be super powerful.

    They sure like to make new civ colours very similar to existing ones, eh? Ethiopia's was very similar to Arabia's, and now Babylon's colours look almost identical to Maya's.

    Heroes and legends looks awesome.

    Randomly shouting Beowulf is a injoke amongst me and my friends. I must play multiplayer, recruit Beowulf and then attack their eardrums

    I was thinking that too buuut that's not necessarily true. He could've just been researching Archery to 60% and then switching to something else whilst waiting for the boost. That's pretty normal to do after all. But if that is actually the case it'd be an incredibly strong ability

    Hmm.. i just hope to the heroes to not be just a early game focused feature with no relevance past the first eras.

    I'm not sure we needed another science civ, especially when Sumeria is already there and does science well. I would have preferred to see the return of Assyria, but that, too, would go into a well-developed playstyle: domination. Perhaps we need more diplomacy civs or an additional faith civ. Alternatively, they could have made Assyria into a unique domination-diplomacy hybrid, that would feel historically accurate but also have its own playstyle.

    Still, Babylon could work, and a new civ is a new civ.
