First look at Portugal in Civilization VI
Firaxis Games has shared a first look video for Civilization VI’s newest civilization Portugal.
Portugal is led by João III, the King of Portugal and the Algarves from 1521 to 1556. His unique ability is “Porta Do Cerco,” which grants all units increased sight and increases trade route capacity when Portugal meets a new civilization.
This newest civilization also has access to a unique unit called the Nau, a naval melee unit that replaces the Caravel. The Nau starts with one free promotion, requires less maintenance than the Caravel, and has two charges to build special ports.
Finally, Portugal has access to the Navigation School, which replaces the University and increases production toward naval units. The Navigation School also increases a city’s science yield for every two costal or lake tiles in the city’s borders.
Civilization VI’s Portugal Pack is scheduled to release on March 25th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
