2K Games has announced that Sid Meier’s Civilization VI now has a new battle royale mode. In this new mode, players will try to outwit and outmaneuver other players as they all race to board the last space ship off the planet. In order to showcase this new mode, the publisher has also released a new trailer that you can find below.
The Red Death is the radioactive mass that is consuming the planet. Similarly to all battle royale modes, a Safe Zone ring will appear on the map. Periodically this ring will shrink and by keeping your units inside the ring you will avoid the Red Death.
On the top-left on the in-game screen is the Red Death tracker. The left portion tells the player how many turns until the ring shrinks, and the right-hand portion tells the player how much damage units will take if they end their turn inside the Red Death.
Players will stay in the game even if one of their Civilians is alive. Once their last Civilian is killed, you will have been eliminated.
Furthermore, Oceans and Lakes are corrosive and will damage your units each turn as you cross. Global heal rate has been increased from normal for fast-paced gameplay, and units have unique promotion trees.
Ironically, this new battle royale mode sounds kind of cool for this strategy game. Therefore, we strongly suggest giving it a go if you already own the base game.
