Civilization VI is free on the Epic Games Store right now

The newest giveaway on the Epic Games Store is a doozy: Civilization VI, without cost, for keepsies. I’m fairly certain some nations take into account handing out free Civ to be an act of financial terrorism, for encouraging innumerable late nights and sick days in individuals who couldn’t resist the siren name of only one extra flip. The turn-based technique sport could also be nearly 4 years previous nevertheless it nonetheless has a £50 price ticket so rattling, okay Epic. This proper after GTA 5 too.

Head on over to the Epic Games Store to seize Civ 6 by 4pm on Thursday the 28th and it’ll be yours to maintain. Nice.

That is the bottom sport, thoughts, with out the expansions that basically do rather a lot to enhance it. If you need these, for £34 you possibly can improve to the Platinum Edition with each the Gathering Storm and Rise & Fall expansions and the six previous Civilization & Scenario Pack DLCs.

And no, this doesn’t embody the model new £33 DLC season go which launched at present, the New Frontier Pass.

I used to be a bit of sceptical when Epic began appearing like they’d such nice weekly freebies coming throughout their Mega Sale however Grand Theft Auto V was a robust begin and Civ 6 is a good follow-up. The GTA giveaway was so well-liked that it killed GTA Online’s servers final weekend.

Civ 6 is likely one of the greatest technique video games, says us. Do see Adam, Alec, and Pip’s RPS Verdict for lots extra phrases. And in case you’re contemplating paying to improve, see our Rise And Fall assessment and Gathering Storm assessment. Alec stated, “Gathering Storm’s one of the best model of Civilization VI we’ve ever had, and feels much more like a sport about civilisation slightly than conquest.” But hell, you possibly can tank a small nation with the hours stolen by the bottom sport alone.
