Indochinese peoples have been somewhat forgotten in their lists of great civilizations over the past thousand years. This is wrong, because the local kingdoms and empires often functioned as real local powers, able to withstand the Chinese, Indian and Japanese rulers who wanted to conquer them. Therefore, it is fitting that Vietnam will join Civilization VI.
DLC is another part of the New Frontier Pass season pass, which regularly brings new nations, game modes and other news. We will learn more about the Vietnamese when Firaxis releases their own introductory video, although the developers have already told us quickly that their main focus will be culture and field work. Which makes sense, because Vietnamese definitely have their experience with other inhospitable jungles.
The question also remains who will lead them. The hitherto unknown leader is said to be a “deified personality, from whose deeds legends are spun,” which is somehow a condition for people to remember you as a great ruler, and therefore not a very good help. More interesting is the mention of bravery, vicious tactics and tantrums.
Personally, I’d guess the guy’s name Le Loi, which in the 15th century re-established the independent Kingdom of Vietnam and freed it from Chinese rule. He’s a rebel, he’s one of Vietnam’s greatest heroes – here with him! But I wouldn’t rule it out either Mrs. Triệu, which also resisted the Chinese, for a change in the 3rd century, because Firaxis likes to add female leaders to the game if a civilization gives them an excuse.
Speaking of leaders, another novelty of the DLC is the Mongolian Khan Kublai. Like Eleonora of Aquitaine, whom England and France can choose as their leaders, Kublai is a potential ruler of two empires – Mongolia, of course, and then China, where he established the ruling Yuan dynasty.
Whatever civilization you choose, its style of play is guaranteed to change thanks to the Khan’s unique bonuses. We have not yet learned the details, but I would say that Kublai will be, at least as far as Mongolia is concerned, more cultural, perhaps religious, than the ultimate conqueror of Genghis. After all, from his position as Chinese emperor, he supremely supported both.
The last major novelty of the new expansion is the game mode “Monopolies and Corporations”, which is far more economically oriented than the basic game. You will build industry and start businesses, and if you manage to master some type of luxury resource, you can create an incredibly lucrative monopoly. This is if, instead of fire and swords, you want to conquer the world with printed papers.
All this will arrive on January 28 as part of the DLC, which you can buy separately for 9 euros, or together with the rest of the season pass for 40 euros.
