    OVERVIEW

    The Portugal Pack introduces João III as the leader of Portugal. Also includes the the Nau unique unit, two unique structures (the Navigation School building and the Feitoria), a new map script, world wonders, and the new "Zombies Defense" mode.

    Includes the Portugal civilization with João III, the Nau unique unit, and two unique structures, the Navigation School building and the Feitoria.
    • Civ Unique Ability: Portugal’s unique ability, “Casa Da Índia,” significantly increases the yields of International Trade Routes, but limits those routes to cities on the coast or with a Harbor. This ability also grants Trader units additional range and the ability to embark on water tiles as soon as they’re unlocked.
    • Leader Unique Ability: Joao’s unique ability is “Porta Do Cerco,” which grants all units increased Sight. It also increases Trade Route capacity whenever Portugal meets a new civ and provides Open Borders with all city-states.
    • Unique Unit: Portugal’s unique unit, the Nau, is a naval melee unit that replaces the Caravel. It starts with one free Promotion, requires less maintenance than the Caravel, and has two charges to build Feitorias, special shipping ports unique to Portugal.
    • Unique Infrastructure: Portugal has access to two unique structures.
      • Portugal’s unique building, the Navigation School, replaces the University building and increases Production toward naval units in each city that builds it. It also increases a city’s Science yields for every two coastal or lake tiles within the city’s borders and grants additional Great Admiral points.
      • The Feitoria can only be built by a Nau unit on a foreign city’s coastal tile next to a luxury or bonus resource. Sending a Trade Route to a city with a Feitoria provides Portugal with additional Gold and Production.

    New "Zombies Defense" Game Mode


    In this optional game mode, the dead don’t stay dead for long and present an ever-growing threat to the world’s civilizations.
    • BRAINS!
    • The Dead Don’t Rest: Every unit has a chance to respawn as a ravenous Zombie when it dies. Zombie units hunger after and attack the nearest non-Zombie unit; any units they slay succumb to the infection and respawn as Zombies themselves.
    • The Living Fight Back: An arsenal of new trap and barricade improvements deal damage to hostile units that pass through or near them and can be built in owned or neutral territory. Zombies’ obsession with brain-banquets and digestive-devastation means they can only fall victim to these improvements and never pillage them.
    • Humanity Takes Control: Two new projects allow civilizations to temporarily subjugate Zombie units within a city’s limits, putting them under player control. The “Holy Site: Turn Undead” project unlocks early, but controls Zombies only briefly. The “Campus: Dark Signal” project unlocks later in the game, but grants additional turns with which to command Zombies’ mindless mayhem. Meanwhile, the “Zombie Outbreak” spy operation attempts to spawn Zombies on worked tiles in another player’s city.

    ───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

    The Portugal content pack also includes a new map script and two new World Wonders:
    • Wetlands Map Script: Squelch your way to victory through a soggy map dominated by Marshes. This map offers new strategic challenges and defensive possibilities: while Marshes penalize Movement, careful positioning can allow ranged units to exploit enemies’ reduced speed.
    • Torre de Belém World Wonder: This imposing tower historically served as a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon in Portugal. Grants additional Gold and Great Admiral Points. International Trade Routes embarking from this city receive additional Gold for every Luxury Resource at the destination. When constructed, any cities owned by the civilization but located on other continents receive the cheapest building they can construct at that time.
    • Etemenanki World Wonder: The name of this Babylonian ziggurat translates to “temple of the foundation of heaven and earth.” It grants additional Science yields every turn, as well as bonus Science and Production to all Floodplains in the city that builds it and Marsh tiles in that civilization.

    ───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

    Zombies Defense Game Mode

    The Zombie Defense game mode introduces a dangerous threat to your Civilization: the dead that do not stay dead. Zombies can rise from the ashes of war, and as they prey upon your and other’s lands, they spread their deadly curse onwards. Build new defensive structures to protect your territory. Make use of new City Projects to manipulate Zombies against your still living opponents.

    Zombies

    Zombies are melee units that wander the map. They cannot pillage your Improvements but will immediately go after any unit wandering outside and attack your City Centers and defensible Districts. Zombie hordes are unrelenting, but predictable as they will always attack the closest non-Zombie unit. But there are new defenses – your Builders and Military Engineers can construct traps and walls, and new City Projects allow you to take control of the dead for a time, using them to attack your enemies or rerouting them to your neighbor’s door.

    Zombie units thrive on the aftermath of war. When a unit dies on the map, it carries a slight chance of returning as a Zombie some turns later. However, if a unit is destroyed by a Zombie, it will rise again on the following turn. If a Zombie attack lowers a city’s population, a new Zombie unit will spawn immediately next to the city. The undead menace steadily grows in strength as well as number – for each Zombie killed anywhere in the world, remaining and new Zombies get stronger.

    New Defensive Structures

    Builders can create Barricades or Traps to help fend off enemies. Later eras can grant the ability to create more powerful Barricades or Traps. While these can be powerful defenses against the living dead, they can also be useful against the units of other civilizations, as they deal damage to any sort of enemy.

    Traps
    • Trap – An unworkable early Improvement that deals a moderate damage to, and depletes the movement of, hostile units passing directly through it. Unlocked with Construction and built using a Builder Charge. Does not prevent unit movement through this space.
    • Modernized Trap – An unworkable later Improvement that deals significant damage to, and depletes the movement of, hostile units passing directly through it. Unlocked with Ballistics and built using a Charge from a Military Engineer. Does not prevent unit movement through this space.
    Barricades
    • Barricade – An unworkable early Improvement that deals minor damage to, and exerts zone of control on, hostile units passing through or adjacent to it. Unlocked with Military Engineering and built using a Builder Charge. Does not prevent unit movement through this space.
    • Reinforced Barricade – An unworkable later Improvement that deals moderate damage to, and exerts zone of control on, hostile units passing through or adjacent to it. Unlocked with Rifling and built using a Charge from a Military Engineer. Does not prevent unit movement through this space.
    • Existing Civilization VI infrastructure has been updated to also provide additional options for Zombie defenses: Fort, Roman Fort, Great Wall, [Ethiopia Pack] Vampire Castle, [Gathering Storm] the Maori’s Pa, [Vikings Scenario Pack] Alcazar.
    New City Projects

    Using the Turn Undead project at a Holy Site or the Dark Signal project at a Campus will allow you to briefly take control of Zombies within your city limits, meaning that you can turn the horde against your enemies. Just be sure to be safely out of reach when your control expires or when you strategically end it. In addition, Spies can spread the deadly curse to other civilizations with the Zombie Outbreak action.
    • Holy Site - Turn Undead – Upon completion, gain control of the Zombies currently in this city’s territory. Control lasts 15 turns.
    • Campus - Dark Signal - Upon completion, gain control of the Zombies currently in this city’s territory. Control lasts 30 turns.
    • City Center Spy action - Zombie Outbreak - Upon completion, has a chance to spawn one Zombie per worked tile in the target city.
    ───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

    New World Wonders

    Torre de Belém
    • +5 Gold. International Trade Routes from this city receive +2 Gold for every Luxury Resource at the destination. When the Torre de Belém is constructed, cities not on your home continent receive the lowest Production cost City Center building they can currently construct. +1 Great Admiral point per turn. Must be built on a Coast tile that is adjacent to a Harbor district.
    Etemenanki
    • +2 Science. +2 Science and +1 Production to all Marsh tiles in your empire. +1 Science and +1 Production on all Floodplains tiles for this city. Must be built on Floodplains or Marsh.
