Sid Meier's Civilization VI, winner of 15 E3 awards including Best PC Game and Best Strategy Game, is the next entry in the popular Civilization franchise, which has sold in over 34 million units worldwide, including more than 8 million units of Civilization V.
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. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history's greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.
Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.
A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems are designed to introduce new players to the underlying concepts of Civilization.
ENHANCED MULTIPLAYER In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
COMBINED ARMS Expanding on the "one unit per tile" design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful "Corps" units.
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.
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.
EXPANSIVE EMPIRES See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.

Download Issues pt 2
Posted by: Grummy from: on
Same issues as the other poster.. good news is, you CAN download the game on Steam and use the digital code they give you thru Best Buy.. easiest fix.

I purchased the digital version of this software prior to reading the other reviews. I have only had one problem after another, and still don't have the software. I've called the Digital Library support line, been placed on hold, and transferred multiple times. A number of times I've waited over 30 minutes for a call back, only to be placed on hold again, then transferred to a disconnected line, and have to start the whole process over again. Geek Squad confirmed that there is NO issue on my side, that there is something wrong with their download link, but I can't find anyone that can help me. I will NEVER buy another digital download from Best Buy. You are better off downloading directly from Steam or another online service. At least it will be instant, and you don't have to wait for some stupid upload of the software to your Library, that you can't download. At this point I'm looking for a refund and will buy the software elsewhere.

I purchased this digital version and having previous digital game experience, I thought this would be a simple download process and I would be playing in no time. Once the game showed up in my digital library, I clicked on the download button and absolutely nothing happened. I called Best Buy's support number and was transferred around several times. Finally Geek Squad tells me it would cost me $49-$99 in order for them to help me. The game its self was $65. Why should I have to potentially double the game for them to fix their own issues with downloading. I have a brand new top of the line Dell laptop so I doubt the issue is with my computers requirements. I spent a total of 55 minutes on the phone with several different people just to try to get a refund. Finally, some one says they will mail me a refund gift card and it will arrive in a little over a week. Awesome... so much good that does me. Terrible game support.

Very Difficult to Download
Posted by: SEANAU from: on
Downloading the file form the digital manager is very difficult. I've installed the digital download manger, which does not appear to work either.

DO NOT BUY THIS
Posted by: thevinci from: on
I was impatient and wanted my game. DO NOT BUY THIS! I tried Firefox, Chrome, and IE. Nothing works. WTF, Best Buy! There is NO WAY to download this.

Should have gone through steam! BestBuy didn't send download key until midnight, while steam allowed players to download in advance of release date. BestBuy uses the Akamai netsession interface to download and my problems begin there. That problems fails to install on all three computers I own, so the download of the game cannot proceed. Called BestBuy support and was told everyone was at lunch and they would email me in a couple of hours. Totally unresponsive in my opinion.

I will have to reiterate what the other reviews have said. The download doesn't work for most people (myself included), and despite all these reviews, nothing has been done to fix the issue. After 2-3 days of dropped transfers, speaking to people who didn't even know what the problem was, but had no trouble giving me a resolution anyway, and other dead ends (I could go on....) their solution was to redeem on the Steam platform, which works, but a huge headache and TERRIBLE customer service.
