Civilization 6 is gettin a religion update this fall

Praise the lord.

The fall update to Civilization 6 promises big changes to the game, with the developers focused on religion. This aspect of the game will get a huge revamp to make it a more relevant part of gameplay.

Associate producer Sarah Darney explains:

“Two new Pantheons will be get introduced into the game, along with new Founder, Follower, Enhancer, and Worship Beliefs. These beliefs unlock the ability to build two new buildings as well as a new combat unit, the Warrior Monk. Religious units can now exert Zone of Control and receive Flank and Support bonuses in religious combat. Meanwhile, the Guru religious support unit can heal nearby religious units. Finally, the Religion Lens has been overhauled to improve overall usability and readability. You’ll also find UI touches, such as religion indicators on unit flags, to remove all guesswork on where a unit’s allegiance lies.”

Apart from religion, other interesting changes will be introduced to the game. AI will now be a better naval player, producing more vessels and governing them better, making the ocean less of a safe place.

There will be changes to the messaging system, great people, and diplomacy screens, as well as a plethora of smaller fixes.

Civilization 6 is out now for PC.
