Like many fans of 4X game Civilization VI, I was a little conflicted when I heard that Firaxis was going down the season pass route for the latest run of Civ 6 DLC. Both Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm are solid expansions and it was clear that Civilization VI was finally hitting its own golden age like Civilization V did before it.
But the allure of new content – including new civs and new special game modes – was too good to pass up, and I purchased the New Frontier Pass the moment it was available because I felt that Civilization VI could only get better. Now that the dust has settled and we get to look back through the the New Frontier Pass, was it worth it?
How many golden ages shone brighter, how many dark ages stifled excitement? Most importantly, was it worth paying the equivalent of a full expansion for (barring minor additions) six new game modes, eight new civilizations, and nine new leaders?
Civilization VI: New Frontier Pass is a series of DLC released bimonthly from May 2020 to March 2021. The pass includes eight new civilizations, nine new leaders, and six new game modes. In this tier list/ranking of civilization 6 new frontier pass leaders April update for deity we take a look and rank every single leader in the game. New Frontier Firaxis announced in May 2020 a 'New Frontier' season pass for the game, consisting of six downloadable content packs, each to be released every two months starting in May through March 2021.
A new update to Civilization 6 will help rebalance the game in light of the new leaders added from the various Frontier Pass content updates. It will also add three more new units, two more True Start maps, and updates to naval battle AI.
According to Firaxis, the update will tweak some existing Civilizations in response to player feedback, in an effort to make them more competitive with the new leaders. Those balance changes will include Spain, Khmer, China, Mapuche, Canada, and Georgia, among others.
The update will also add the Line Infantry, Man-At-Arms, and Trebuchet units. Since those units will change the pacing, Firaxis is also making several other unit changes. That aims to make sure the new units feel weighty and smooth out combat differences. A new True Start Mediterranean and True Start Huge map will be part of the update as well, and the AI will make better use of naval units and choices around naval production.
