Were the Cree or Chandragupta hinted at in the trailer?

    So far, the Koreans, Dutch, and Mongols were clearly alluded to in the trailer, but nothing seems to have hinted toward the Cree or Chandragupta. Could this mean that the rest of the the trailer elements are red herrings?

    I think all the trailer elements hint at something, but not all of them hint at civs. Other parts may be hinting at gameplay features like loyalty and ages or governors.

    Well there isn't really anything else in the trailer (apart from the Georgia stuff) that hints at any Civ in particular that isn't already in the game.

    Although I still think Italy is a possibility, I am unconvinced that plague doctor guy is a reference to Italy as that distinctive mask was worn all over medieval Europe.

    This makes sense. For instance, the gladiator scene is probably referencing the “Bread and Circuises” city project, for instance. Maybe the explorer scene was really referring to one of the Golden Age dedications?

    Honestly, I don't know what Firaxis's timeline is with these things. Who even knows if they'd decided on all the Civs when they made the trailer. For that matter, did they even do the trailer in-house?

    They didn't. We found an article on LinkedIn by the guy who did the storyboards for the trailer. He showed some of them. The one for the Netherlands explicitly said "Map of Amsterdam" on the map. Shortly after we discovered it, the article was taken down.

    Oh that then makes it more likely imho that they didn't necessarily have all the Civs decided on when that process started.

    What Georgia stuff? You mean those archers? Why do you think they are Georgian, not Hungarian or Armenian for example. I'm really curious, and maybe I've missed something.

    Apparently, their design is similar to Georgian clothing. Also the castle resembles a castle in Georgia.

    Screens? Links? This castle resembles any castle in any part of the world where castles were built :)

    You'll have to dig through some of these threads here to find the pictures.

    Here's a link.

    I assumed the plague doctor and ship at sea in a storm were representative of Emergencies.

    Probably not. From what we know of emergencies, they are the means of knocking the top player off the top spot by uniting the other players against them. It doesn't have anything to to do random events.

    I won't say they weren't hinted in the trailer but they were leaked 2-3 weeks ago by a Chinese 2k dev, which meant that we knew who it was going to be next.

    The parts of the trailer that are yet mysterious to me:

    Building the dam - maybe related to monumentality dedication?
    Ship at sea during a storm - maybe also related to the exploration dedication?
    Plague doctor - decreased growth in some dark ages?
    Berlin Wall - coming out of a dark age?
    United Nations scene - unknown post-modern dedication?

    The "building a dam" part; I wonder if they are constructing a Carthaginian Cothon. Cothons are circular artificial additions to harbors dedicated to warships instead of commercial vessels.
