Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 is now free on EPIC Games Store, meaning you can now claim a free copy that’s yours to keep. The offer is available until 11AM ET on May 28th, so you have one week to take advantage. You can grab the game over on its store page
Civilization 6 has been around for well over three years now, but Firaxis and 2K are still actively supporting it. In fact, a new season pass with six DLCs was announced earlier this month. And strategy games tend to age well, especially when they’re as good as Civ 6, which we called the best of the Civilization series in our 93% review: So good that “I’ll never need another Civ game in my life,” our reviewer wrote, which is about as solid an endorsement as you’re going to get.
Take note that, under Epic’s new rules, you’ll need to have 2FA enabled on your account to claim the game—if you haven’t done that yet, you can learn how to do so here. Civilization 6 will be free on the Epic Games Store until 11 am PT on May 28.
ABOUT THE GAME
Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI
Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time.
See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.
Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.
Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.
In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS
Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.
