Last week we reported on the substantial Fall 2017 update planned for Civilization VI. In addition to the reworked religious system, a new civilization will debut with the patch. The Khmer civilization will arrive alongside the patch, with its unique leader Javayarman VII. The powerful Khmer Empire arose in what is now known as present-day Cambodia. The Khmer empire is no stranger to the Civilization series, the first appearance was in Civilization IV under the leader Suryavarman II.
It is expected that the new civilization will arrive free for Deluxe Edition owners. The development team has been hard at work this past year to enhance and elevate the value of the entire game release. We will publish more details as they emerge, but in the meantime, the Civ team has released a trailer detailing all of the Khmer’s bonuses and unique features.
