Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Explore a new land, research technology, conquer your enemies, and go head-to-head with history's most renowned leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

And now on Nintendo Switch, the quest to victory in Civilization VI can take place wherever, whenever.

Civilization VI for Nintendo Switch includes the latest game updates and improvements and four pieces of additional content which adds four new civilizations, leaders, and scenarios:

  • Vikings Scenario Pack
  • Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack
  • Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack
  • Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack

Features:

  • PLAY YOUR WAY: The path to victory is the one you determine. Become the most scientifically advanced civilization, dominate through sheer military power, or become the foremost destination for the cultural arts.

  • THE WORLD'S GREATEST LEADERS: Play as one of 24 different leaders from various countries around the world and throughout history. Build an empire of lucrative trade routes with Cleopatra of Egypt, flex the military might of your legions with Trajan of Rome, or develop a powerhouse of culture with Hojo Tokimune of Japan. Each of the leaders can be played any way you prefer, with unique abilities, units, and infrastructure in their quest for victory.

  • EXPANSIVE EMPIRES: See the marvels of your empire spread across the map. Settle in uncharted lands, improve your surroundings, build new districts, and see your cities - and your civilization - prosper.

  • ACTIVE RESEARCH: Unlock boosts that speed your civilization's progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.

  • DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY: Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.

  • EXCITING AND UNIQUE SCENARIOS: Civilization VI for Nintendo Switch includes four playable scenarios, each with a different setting and style of gameplay inspired by history. Be part of the colonization of Australia in "Outback Tycoon," defend Poland from invaders in "Jadwiga's Legacy," choose a Viking leader to conquer Europe in "Vikings, Raiders, and Traders!", or conquer the known world in the "Conquests of Alexander."

  • COOPERATIVE AND COMPETITIVE MULTIPLAYER: Up to 4 players can cooperate or compete for supremacy via a wireless LAN.

Plays as well as the vanilla PC version - I'm LOVING the cross-save function which meant that I could play on the PC, save to the cloud, then continue on my Switch. The actual feature can be a little slow and buggy but from my research on forums the cloud saves can take a while to show anyway.

CIV 6 on the Switch is a joy to play - the controls fit nicely and you don't lose much information despite the smaller screen. Even the graphics carry some of the effects you see on the PC like waves from the sea rolling up to the shore and birds circling in th sky over a fish resource. Fantastic credit having the game run pretty smoothly despite all the effects going on.

The primary downside has already been covered - the expensive DLC.

I lost about 14 nights of sleep (back to back!) trying to secure a science victory - realised late in-game that my choice of England and a large world map were not in synergy with each other! I was barely able to make use of my Civ's navy strengths.

If you jumped from 4 to 6 like me, there's a lot to get used to - especially the use of districts. I found out towards the end of my game that I could mark out areas of the map with various pins so you can plan out your wonders and districts much easier. There are a lot of gameplay changes too and I really enjoyed getting to grips with them. Domination victories can be a bit of a grind fest once you hit the modern era because of how much firepower you need to take over a city but guess that kinda mimics real life somewhat.

One of my gripes is how much you get penalised for 'Warmongering', a Civ 6 term for starting and prolonging wars. The other civs have a crazy long memory for war!

There’s a lot of mixed opinions.


I think this is great in handheld mode, gets a little laggy in the late 1900’s...but I’ve spent quite a few nights up til 4 in the morning saying “just one more turn then I’ll go to sleep”. Great game!

I have it, but I can't compare it to the PC version unfortunately.

The game is great, just as addictive as I found 5. The load times on Huge mapped games with a total number of countries are understandingly longer but the gameplay remains fluid. Rerolls will be noticeable longer. I've noticed sound lagging once or twice, but only in the huge games.

Playing handheld is a huge bonus, but on TV really makes it worth it. I played 5 on my laptop, so being able to be portable when others use the TV made this standout above the PS4 version.

My biggest gripe is that Nintendo doesn't seem to want to put the DLC on sale and I'm reluctant to pay full price for it.
I dont have a PC anymore so was interested to hear of the quality on Switch. Your review sounds very positive though so maybe I will dive it at this price!

I play on PC and honestly the DLC ruins it, I regret buying the expansions
Missed out on the Monster deal from a few weeks ago, so thank you OP

I’m 40 years old, and I recently bought this. It’s still very much the same and I played it it for 3 hours straight last night! Couldn’t put it down. It’s still a fantastic game

I've read several reviews that have put me off buying the DLC. I already have a ton of fun with the main game anyway and can only see myself benefitting from playing around with other civs rather than changing the gameplay
I picked this up in the last sale and, while a long time fan of Civ games, have found this to be almost unplayable on my Switch Lite due to my slightly wonky eyesight and the small screen. I was hoping some consideration would have been given to adapting the UI to a smaller screen, but as is so often the case with Switch games, there's no difference to running it on a large TV screen.
After playing civ 5 for about 600 hours on my PC I’d be scared to buy this to use with a controller. Not sure I could get over not playing with a mouse.

When the game get's laggy, try saving the game, exiting and load the game back up. Seems to do the trick for me
Still play CIV IV BTS on my laptop. Still the best Civ ever.

Tried Civ on 360 and it was rubbish, same as Civ V on PC. Reluctant to try VI they've changed too much
Got this last year when it was around this price at Argos. Totally worth it, runs fine and is great to have on to go / play on the sofa while gf watches TV. Also syncs saves with PC version but I haven’t tried that out

I’ve had this for quite a while now, personally I absolutely love it. My previous and first Civ experience was on PC for Civ 4. I was quite apprehensive that the relatively low powered Switch could handle this game, particularly late game complexities. I generally play on the standard map sizes and whilst true that there can be some noticeable lag late game, which initially impacted my enjoyment of the game, this is actually a bug and can be easily resolved by loading the game again (rather than continuing a existing game).

Also I was very pleasantly surprised how well the controls work. Whilst the mouse interface is probably superior this is the best set of controls for a strategy game I have seen on any console.

My only gripe is the warmongering penalty feels over powered - I wish this was adjusted to allow some wars without being forced to peruse a military victory.

Overall I love this game and in fact I think the Switch might be the perfect console for it as you can have a quick blast in between whatever you are doing during the day.

At this price is a must buy for any Civ fans in my opinion.

Hard to explain but it doesn't really add anything to the game, just complicates it a bit - not in a challenging way, more in a 'this isn't fun' way. I clocked about 300 hours of gameplay before getting the DLC and have barely played it since.
I think the DLC adds extra dimension, particularly the loyalty system introduced in Rise and Fall. This stops the old tactic of establishing a remote city right next to another civilisation, if you do this now the city can defect and join the civilisation they are next to.
I really wanted to like this game but I just couldn’t. I’d never played a previous civ but the premise sounded fun. I went through the tutorial even wasted hours watching YouTube to try and get how to play this!

Im not the greatest gamer by any stretch but I’ve never bought a game where I genuinely thought ‘Is this game incredibly complex or am I an idiot?’

Perhaps it is the later but if you’re a casual gamer give this a miss as you’ll end up frustrated.
Now Civ5, what a game that is. Steam tells me I've played it for 1584 hours, which is about 1500 more hours than I've got out of of any other game I've bought in the last 10 years so pretty good value imho. Not so keen on Civ6 though.

Do the first few play throughs on easiest difficult and just do domination victory till you get the hang of it.

I loved the original Civ 1 on Amiga. I love Civilization Revolution on Xbox 360 (I still play this on occasion).
I bought Civ VI recently for Xbox One. I didn't like it, very disappointing.
I think maybe I should have tried Civ II, III, IV, V on PC and see how it evolved over time.
I would highly recommend XCOM/XCOM2 as an alternative turn based strategy game.
Ordered! Heat added!

Think Civ 6 is a bit more complex than other Civ games in many areas and also simplified in several, notably, in sea travel and how builders are used. In previous civ games, you could end up with a small army of builders doing relatively nothing towards the late game while the limited use mechanic in Civ 6 stops that. Traders automatically building roads is a great discovery I made in my early playthrough (albeit late!).

Civ games do tend to have a lot to wrap your head around so if this is your first one then allow a bit more time to get familiar with the mechanics. Like impoor recommended, do some playthroughs on the easiest difficulty to help you get familiar.

The gameplay is different enough to other civ games that I needed a couple of failed run throughs to learn as I play.
I would recommend this game on the Switch. Have come back to civ after maybe 10-12 years so bit of a steep learning curve but do end up getting hooked pretty quickly...playing it on the TV is great fun.
Anyone ever manage to connect a mouse and keyboard to their switch for games like this?

I just don’t think it’s for me. I’ve already spent more time on this than it takes to complete some games. I should have got some enjoyment by now so I’m not going to invest any more time. No big deal, I’ve still got Horizon Zero Dawn sitting around amongst others
