But could also be men in turbans or keffiyeh.
You could be right.
I retract. The tweet said new civ and leader. So it isn't Eleanor. Most likely Ottomans
As I said, I'm playing devils advocate here. Right now, most clues point to ottomans.
This... this is the most beautiful thing I've ever read.
I applaud you sir.
Looks like a mosque in the background imo, typical near eastern arches and colour scheme.
Looks like the Hanging Gardens to me, which means it is a surprise reveal of Portugal!
Immediately after reading this post I only had two thoughts or rather emotions, the first one was: this is seriously OTT, and the second one was more of a groan: O', MAN...
...wait a minute...... now I think I know what you really meant by all this! Well done!
I can see great deal of resemblance to many of the courtyards at Topkapi Palace (and looking for its pictures makes me angrier with my guide at Istambul, he kept us in the Grand Bazaar 4 or 5 hours and then we got little time to see Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque and when we passed in front of Topkapi he just said it was an old museum ).
I guess it could be Fontevraud Abbey, but if we take the leaked portraid of Eleanor, she is younger depicted, and she lived there in her older years, close to her death.
Im 100% sure its Topkapi Palace garden now! When this comment become 12hours old Ottoman Empire will be revealed.
To me it's reminiscent of the abbey where Eleanor was buried with Henry II.
Yes, but we have the ottoman in the livestream & the announcement that a civ will be revealed. Of course those could mislead on purpose but I have to admit that's strong evidence.
Maybe Eleanor can also be used as leader of the Ottomans
"Eleanor leads ANY Civ in Sid Meier's Civilization 6: Gathering Storm"
"Eleanor Unique Ability is the Royal Marriage: at the beginning of the game, you control only an undefeatable Bride unique recon unit.
Each time you encounter a new civilization, you can organize a Royal Marriage: 10 turns after this decision, you take full control of this civilization. The previous Leader is lost in oblivion. Your previous civilization is completely transformed in Free Cities.
Gain Great Writer Points and Great Musician Points 25% quicker, and Theater Squares trigger a cultural bomb."
Put that into the game, best ability ever, 100% would buy.
Wouldn't that turn civilization into an otome game?
Not long till we find out the answer
I am eagerly anticipating the first look today. I hope it will be another Civ that has big strengths but some notable weaknesses as well. (like Maori and Mali)
My speculation for the Ottomans is the Janissary UU, the unique governor in place of the infrastructure, and some trade route/naval bonus. (Not sure who the governor will be though)
Shouldn't it be out already?
