In this thread we will be documenting all the new additions for Civilization VI in their new Leader Pass.
This Features Thread is being complied for Civfanatics, head on over to the forums for all your Civilization discussions both for Civ 6 and also for Civ games of the past and upcoming 4X titles.
You can also see all our Civilization coverage HERE.
Throughout this thread, I will put links to Wikipedia articles about the different features, if you would like to know more. If you see anything in ITALICS, this means that the information is implied enough that we feel it is safe to add it to the Features Thread, but it is not officially confirmed yet.
