First look at Maya in Civilization VI
2K and Firaxis Games have offered a first look at Maya, one of the two new civilizations coming to Civilization VI later this month.
Maya is led by Ix Wak Chan Ajaw, better known as Lady Six Sky, queen of the Mata city of Naranjo. She has access to the Ix Mutal Ajaw unique leader ability, which grants bonus yields to non-capital cities and adds a combat bonus to units within six tiles of the capital.
Maya can also use the Hul’che unique unit, which replaces the archer, and the Observatory as a unique district, which replaces the campus. Finally, Maya’s unique ability grants housing and gold bonuses from farms and grants an amenity bonus for luxury resources adjacent to the city center.
The Maya civilization will be added to the game as part of the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack on May 21st. The DLC includes two civilizations, two leaders, the Apocalypse game mode, new City-States, additional resources, and more. The pack will be available as part of the New Frontier Pass for $39.99 or as an individual purchase.
Civilization VI is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
