    Surprising news.
    I won't buy it pre-release or on release like I did with V as I learned my lesson.
    Will wait a few weeks/months to see how it turns out especially with a 80$ price tag!

    I'm really not a fan of the cartoony art style.

    I have no qualms with the new game looking like Clash of Clans, but I am somewhat disappointed that the architecture and unit design aren't fully age and civ appropriate; they still haven't fixed this issue.

    Ahahahahahahaa!!! They did it! They did it! They're using the map!!!!!

    You have no idea how happy this makes me. By linking city development, diplomacy, and even research development to the map, you're solving a slew of issues Civ has had with information display and how active games get. Ohhhh, I am jumpin', I am jumpin'.

    Nice news. Stellaris, HoI4 and Civ6 all in one year, good times.

    The screenshots are a bit cartoony for my tastes but until we see it in action who knows?

    :woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

    Been waiting for an announcement since quite some time. Graphics do look cartoony, but maybe that just means they've spent less time on the terrain artwork and more time on balancing and making the game more fun :D

    Let's keep our fingers crossed :lol:

    You see cartoony, I see a game that will actually load in less than ten minutes.

    One thing as nothing to do with the other.

    Upgrade your computer.
    Mine is 5 years old and I load all my games in under a minute

    I had hoped to see the map graphics updated to something similar to R2TW, but this is... what?

    This PC Gamer article seems to cover everything I've seen so far.

    We're talking about a 2010 release that loaded much slower compared to Civ 4's base game in 2005.

    2 favorite parts:
    Looks like Civ6 will implement the idea of resources boosting research which was one of my favorite ideas.

    This sounds intriguing. I wonder if this is a progression from Rising Tide's diplo traits system.

    I am just happy they kept the hexes!
    PC only for now. Just as well, that helps me temper my expectations!
    Can anyone tell the difference in content between the $60 and $80 “Digital Deluxe” versions?

    I am wondering about the 'access to four post-launch DLC packs'. Hopefully that $20 bump in price provides a better deal on the DLC than a $20 OST. Seems more like the "season pass" other games are doing vs. a discounted price on DLC.

    I am not sure if you guys have noticed, but now building on the coast is not necessary in order to have a harbour / water buildings. This will help my OCD a lot where I wouldnt build a city on an obvious good tile cause it is one tile away from the coast

    Whoa so excited for this! Wasn't expecting an announcement before E3, and it literally made me jump off my seat!

    I'm a bit disappointed by the style though... Specially when you see what the guys at Creative Assembly are doing on their campaign map for Total War: Wharammer... I love cartoony style but I think this just looks cheap and a bit outdated (or just mobile-quality), and I think with the time that Civ 6 must have been in production, and the talent they've got at Firaxis, they could have done a bit more than this... Cartoony style in Age Of Empires Online was absolutely amazing, and it still had weathering and atmospheric effects, but this?... Feels like they could have added a bit more life than this....

    But I'm hoping the gameplay will be absolutely amazing, and that they will soon reveal that MODDING will be a big part of this game! (one can only hope...)

    Hurrah for Civ 6!
