The New Frontier Pass

Posted onby admin

The sixth and final DLC pack is out as part of the New Frontier Pass with a Portugal DLC for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI. Available to all who purchased the pack, or as an individual DLC. It includes the Portugal civilization with João III, the Nau unique unit, and two unique structures, the Navigation School building and the Feitoria.


Feb 05, 2021 The New Frontier Pass for Civilization 6 will finally come to an end next month, with only one more DLC pack on the way. The Season Pass started in May 2020 and has released a new pack for. TL;DR - My opinion is the New Frontier Pass is worth about (9. $1.24 leaders) + (6. $1.99 modes) + (6. $1.24 content) = $30 piecemeal max, realistically $20 bundled pass so I'm waiting for a -50% discount or more. I've shelled out way too much on 4X strategy already, tons of other content I can replay or try.

You also get access to a new Zombies Defense game mode. In this optional game mode, the dead don’t stay dead for long and present an ever-growing threat to the world’s civilizations. On top of that you also get a new Wetlands Map Script and two new World Wonders.

What isn't clear is if Firaxis Games plan anything else for Civilization VI after this. There's supposed to be a balancing patch in April which going by what they said, is going to be a big one touching on lots of different existing civilizations. Firaxis said the balancing patch will touch on two thirds of them, and considering there's now around 50 that's a lot that likely need tweaking to play nicely together. Apart from that though now the Frontier Pass is done, they've delivered on everything they announced for 2020 and 2021 so it will be interesting to see if they bring out a second pass full of content or move onto a new game.

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?
