    The build is about 3 weeks old. It's just Gamescom build is earlier.

    Here's a curious tooltip from FilthyRobot's Coolest New Feature of Civilization 6. It's turn 60, 640 BC. The player as Montezuma is attacking the French capital, and this is the mouseover tooltip for the city center:



    Note the item "Philosopher's Stone".

    It sounds to me like a Relic or Artifact, but I think it's interesting that its presence is visible to an enemy player, and it's reported in the list of buildings.

    Arioch, Pilosopher's Stone is most likely a great engineer special ability building !

    Ed said it was about 48 hours old at the beginning of the stream, and that there were UI elements in it that even he hadn't seen yet.

    I still wonder if it was un purpose. He first said, I don't know what's in the build. Then he opens the civilopedia for something he could have told us and shows the leaders. Oh, an 'accident.' The intro seems a good excuse.

    I forget which video I saw it in but the Philosopher's Stone is an Artifact that you can pick up from Tribal Villages. There's a lot of really powerful hut bonuses in Civ 6.

    Sorry, I've missed it. I remember them saying it's about 4 weeks newer than the previous build, so I was basing on this.

    That wasn't it, it was a Great Work of Art, not a building. And I think Marbozir picked it up via a Goody Hut.

    So I guess nobody got a screenie of Everest's bonuses? From what I recall, it provides 1faith on adjacent tiles and grants religious units extra movement on hills. Any one have a clearer recollection?

    In the latest stream they confirmed that city attack is equal to your strongest available ranged unit hence the slinger animation on city attack. Also they showed the Aztec ethnic variant for spearmen but I was not able to get a nice screenshot yet. Here is the link: https://www.twitch.tv/2k/v/84451355



    stream starts at 3:40:30

    Marbozir picked up the Stone of Scone, from memory.

    Confirmation that the French UU does not replace musketmen.

    And the confirmation that the ranger is a ranged unit.

    Weird that the text describes it as a melee unit.

    With a range of 1. That's kind of how I always thought gunpowder units should function... but then, I also thought that ranged units should be allowed to counter-attack when attacked by other ranged units :p

    So it's functionally similar to a gatling/machine gun, but with better mobility.

    Presumably all military units have melee strength, for defensive purposes if they cannot initiate melee-style attacks (just as all military units in Civ V (including ranged and siege units) had "combat strength" even if they also had "ranged" strength).

    I think Eagle Pursuit was referring to the text: "Fast-moving industrial era melee unit"
