Civilization 6's Next DLC Pack Adds Ethiopia And A New Game Mode
Civilization VI will expand further on July 23 with the Ethiopia Pack, which is available as part of the New Frontier Pass or can be purchased separately for $5. This pack will introduce Ethiopia as a civilization, along with new buildings and a new district. It will also introduce a new mode, as long as you own the Rise and Fall or Gathering Storm expansions.
The new mode is called Secret Societies, and it–as you might expect–adds some secret societies to the game world. Discovering one of these societies will unlock a unique, extra-powerful Governor, whose bonuses do not need to be assigned to a specific city.
Once a society is uncovered, the player who found it becomes a member of that society for the rest of the game, and if you form an alliance with a player who is also a member your Alliance Points will accumulate faster, and you’ll have better diplomacy options. Conversely, players in other societies are going to be your enemies.
Along with Ethiopia, players who have the New Frontier Pass will also get Teddy Roosevelt and Catherine De Medici Persona Packs, which will change the model and background of these leaders, and add new gameplay bonuses and agendas for them. These personas are called Rough Rider Teddy and Magnificence Catherine, which should give you some idea of what to expect.
This DLC will come to all the game’s console releases, too.
This is the second of six content drops promised for the New Frontier Pass. The next one is due in September, and the first release also introduced a new mode, called Apocalypse. Sid Meier’s memoir, which has a great name, is also due in September.
