Uh, Civilization VI Has A Battle Royale Mode Now

Whereas this may sound like a really late April Idiot’s joke, it’s not. Flip-based technique juggernaut Civilization VI now has its very personal battle royale mode, known as Purple Dying.

As an alternative of simply slapping some new guidelines into the prevailing recreation, Purple Dying is a customized multiplayer situation that has new factions, characters and new-ish items. Set within the apocalypse, you’ll be enjoying as one among these new sides and making an attempt to get to the final spaceship leaving Earth, all of the whereas killing everybody round you and making an attempt to keep away from the encroaching and titular Purple Dying, which kills every little thing it touches.

I’ll strive it out this week, however it appears enjoyable! And whereas this trailer is terrible, the factions themselves—just like the “Deeply Invested Cultists” and “Very Goth Borderlords”—look fairly humorous, and customized multiplayer situations have all the time been one among Civilization’s most fascinating testbeds.

Purple Dying is a part of Civilization VI’s free September 2019 replace.
