First look at Byzantium in Civilization VI
2K and Firaxis Games have released a first look video for Byzantium in Civilization VI.
Byzantium is led by Basil II, the emperor of the Byzantine Empire from 976 to 1025 CE, who has access to a unique ability that “allows Heavy and Light Cavalry units to do full damage against cities following the same religion as Byzantium.”
In addition, Byzantium has access to the Dromon and Tagma unique units. The Dromon replaces the Quadrireme and has additional range, while the Tagma replaces the Knight and grants nearby land units additional combat strength.
Finally, Byzantium can build the Hippodrome, which replaces the Entertainment Complex and provides additional amenities.
Byzantium will arrive in the game on September 24th as part of the Byzantium and Gaul Pack DLC. The DLC includes two new civilizations and leaders, two new World Wonders, a new map script, and a new game mode.
