Sid Meier’s Civilization games have been the king of 4X for as long as I can remember. The level of depth and complexity make them stand head and shoulders above the competition. They are the games that spawned an entire genre and are the inspiration behind countless other titles.
Civ VI has been out on PC since 2016 and has over 40,000 reviews on Steam. On 22nd November console players will also get the chance to take on the Civilization experience when it releases on Xbox One and PS4.
