    I was expecting at least more souped up/threatening climate change, possibly some different apocalyptic scenarios that could (or could not ) be prevented in some fashion, and some form of increasing roving bands of barbarian hordes (whether dressed up as some fantastical like 'zombies' or not).

    Granted some of this could still happen, even in conjunction with other game modes (i.e. a 'plague' game mode that creates an apocalyptic plague when turned on with apocalypse mode), but I'm not super optimistic.

    Well that sounds kind of similar to what we might be getting. Appeasing the Gods competition is likely a way to prevent the apocalyptic scenarios and the soothsayer looks exactly how you described the roving band of barbarians. :)

    It’s only the first DLC. But yeah, it’s quite possible the various Game Modes will be quite limited. So, no ideology, no economic / corporations / trade, etc etc.

    There is popular stuff from previous game versions that is still missing from Civ. And People have been asking for ideology , corporations etc. And FXS have a good track record listening to fans. So, there’s reason to be hopeful even if the current DLC pack / game mode seems limited. But, equally, FXS could well have decided that stuff is not worth the effort / not actually all the popular / too complicated.

    We’ll have to wait and see (of course).

    It's nice that both Maya & GC offer something different. Not that going al domination on the world with GC doesn't involve planning, but playing Maya wil most certainly feel more like solving a puzzle once you've scouted the 6-hex radius around your capital.

    GC for me seems like a civ that can offer a nice roleplay type of game in which you wait until your UU & UI arrives to start a war of unification for neighbouring territories. From a pure powerplay perspective this will feel like very (very-very) suboptimal approach, but in my experience playing certain civs in a more thematic way offers quite a fun challenge.

    Looking forward to future 'Civ of the Week'-kinda topics/discussions once everyone actually starts playing with the new civs.
