New content for Sid Meier's Civilization VI every two months. That sounds too good to be true. Now comes what fans of the civilization game have long dreamed of: regular new content and that also for Nintendo Switch. “New Frontier” -Pass is the name of the service, for which players first have to dig relatively deep into their pockets. The fun costs 40 euros, but it will be replenished every two months until March 2021. 

With the “New Frontier” pass, 2K Games has announced a new season pass for Civilization 6, which will bring new content into the game every two months. It starts on May 21, 2020, from then on fans with an active annual pass can look forward to regular content units until March 2021. Two civilizations, nine new leaders, six new game modes and other content will then find their way to the PC, mobile systems and all console versions of Civilization 6, including the version for Nintendo Switch.

Civilization 6: Around four years of continuous entertainment

Sid Meier's Civilization 6 is almost four years old and over time has become the flagship of the entire series. At the beginning it looked different: Civilization 6 has always been outstanding and entertaining, but couldn't compete with its direct predecessor with real fans.

Today, three and a half years after the release, numerous updates as well as the two big expansions Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm have ensured that the latest of the series is also the best of the series.

To keep it that way, 2K Games and Firaxis are now adding a season pass, which will ensure constant supplies. The Mayan and Greater Colombia package starts on May 21: there will then be two new civilizations, two new leaders, new city-states and an apocalypse game mode. This is followed by content every two months. In July, the “New Frontier” pass introduces a new civilization and leader with Ethiopia, plus the secret society game mode as well as a new district and new infrastructure.

Then it gets surprising: Although it is known that further new civilizations and leaders as well as game modes will be implemented in September, November, January and March, which 2K Games and Firaxis have not yet revealed.

New maps, scenarios and balancing adjustments are also coming, but free of charge and also for those players without a “New Frontier” pass. "As part of the content outlook for Civilization 6 Firaxis will release additional free updates between the DLC packages with new maps, scenarios, balance adjustments and more for all owners of the game," announced 2K Games.

Civilization 6: Annual pass costs 40 euros

The Civilization VI - New Frontier Pass will initially be available for 39,99 euros on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Mobile platforms will be added over the course of the year. In addition, it will be possible to purchase each DLC package individually, announced 2K Games. So if you are only interested in a single civilization, you can selectively expand your “Civ 6”.

We're excited to add even more content to Civilization VI for long-time fans and new players to the franchise to look forward to in the coming months. The New Frontier Pass gives us new ways to connect with the community as we develop new content and post it at regularly scheduled intervals.

First, on May 21, the Maya and Greater Colombia Pack will be released, which includes leaders of their respective civilizations, a new Apocalypse game mode, new city-states, resources and natural wonders.

Of course, there are also a few goodies for buyers: Those who purchase the “New Frontier” pass receive the Teddy Roosevelt and Katharina von Medici packages as exclusive bonuses. Each of the two packages contains a head of state in a new guise, then with a new leader model and background, new game bonuses and a revised agenda adapted to the changed leader personality.

"Rough Rider Teddy" is an expert in keeping the peace on his home continent, and "Katharina (sublime)" can achieve world domination through the use of luxury goods with the use of culture and tourism. Both packages will be released at the same time as the second DLC package in July.

The Season Pass is only additional content for Civilization 6. The main game is therefore mandatory.
