Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass: First Look at Menelik II of Ethiopia
Earlier this week, we announced the second piece of DLC for Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass – the Ethiopia Pack – will be launching on July 24. Today we’re revealing a First Look at Menelik II of Ethiopia.
Here is some key information as related to Civilization VI:
Ethiopia focuses on cities built on Hills, generating Faith and using Menelik’s “Council of Ministers” ability to boost Science and Culture.
Cities earn extra Faith from resources, boosted even further when international trade routes originate from resource-rich cities. Ethiopia can purchase Archaeology Museums and Archaeologists with Faith. Menelik II gets extra Culture and Science based on the Faith output of cities founded on Hills. His units also get extra Combat Strength when fighting on Hills. The Oromo Cavalry has improved Combat Strength and Sight, and suffers no movement penalty for moving on Hills. His unique tile improvement, the Rock-Hewn Church, can only be built on Hills or Volcanic Soil. It provides Faith with extra Faith from Mountains and Hills and can only be pillaged, not destroyed, by natural disasters.
Content is being delivered on a bimonthly basis until March 2021, and the second DLC pack – Ethiopia Pack – will launch on July 24, 2020 for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, Mac and Linux. The Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass is priced at INR 2,199; the Ethiopia Pack is available for individual purchase at INR 379.
