Civ 6's First New Frontier Pass DLC Is Out Now On All Platforms
The Maya and Gran Colombia Pack comes bundled with two new leaders, an additional game mode, and much more.
Publisher 2K Games has announced that the first DLC expansion for Sid Meier's Civilization 6 New Frontier Pass, titled the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack, is now available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The expansion pack features a bunch of content, including two new leaders--Lady Six Sky of the Maya civilization and Simon Bolivar of Gran Colombia--the added Apocalypse game mode, extra resources (like honey and maize), more natural wonders (such as the Bermuda Triangle and others), and additional city-states.
Some of these city-scapes include Caguana, Singapore, Lahore, Vatican City, and more. Further, the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack includes other natural wonders like Paititi and Fountain of Youth.
The biggest addition to Civ 6 from the expansion pack is the Apocalypse mode. It introduces new disaster types--Solar Flares that cause forest fires and Comet Impacts that result in meteor showers--to all games while increasing the size of existing disasters. In addition to this, the Apocalypse mode adds the new Soothsayer support military unit that can trigger natural disasters and a scored competition that allows you to sacrifice units to volcanoes. The Gathering Storm expansion is required to play the new Apocalypse mode.
The New Frontier Pass retails for $40, while the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack can be purchased individually for $9. You can check out some of the expansion's screenshots below.
