Looks like it will be announced sometime during the Summer Game Fest 2024.

At risk of sounding throughly old,  grumpy, and groggy, Civilization has become so "mass-marketized" that, while I-IV remain among my very top games of all time, I can't even whip up the enthusiasm to watch the trailer for VII.

I don't disagree...however Civ V has a lot going for it.

If they bring back unit stacking with some decent balance tweaks, I'm all ears.
A War of a Madman's Making - a text-based war planning and political survival RPG

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Now I am one of those who got Civ V on release (pre-ordered) first game I ever did that. I recall so much bashing over it. It wasn't until Gods and Kings and later Brave New World where things finally clicked.

So with VII, if they can look at what worked in all the previous ones, and improve on that. Maybe with the unit stacking, maybe some other features. But it isn't until 2025 so I will be watching cautiously. I never got into VI sadly, I think it was because I never fully played V or IV enough. Sad huh?

But let's see how VII goes, 2025 is a ways away.

Civ VI is only $3 on Steam.  Since nobody mentioned it in this thread can I assume it's not even worth that paltry sum?

^I'm actually re-installing Civ VI now to try it out again. I've played only about 22 hours of it and barely remember it at all, other than not liking the extremely cartoony look of most of the graphics. I may pick up some heavily discounted DLCs if I feel differently about it this time.

I bought Old World on sale a while ago and never put much time into it.  Might go back to that rather than piking up Civ VI.  Sorry for derailing the thread.

I actually got quite a bit out of Civ VI, played several very long, asynch games with 4-6 human players (games that included our own Mr. Jason Pratt). That was fun.

My mind is open on Civ VII. 

But like Geezer, I invested in Old World...and enjoy it...so no urgent need to scratch the Civ-like game itch.

Steam says I have ~300 hours in Civ V and ~220 in Civ VI.  I honestly can't remember the differences between the two.  I think the key is to wait until all the DLC comes out and buy a bundled version.  I recall both Civ V and VI being a bit weak and lacking in features upon initial release.

I've been playing and enjoying Warhammer 40k: Gladius again recently. It was given away free on Steam and GOG about a month ago so some of my friends installed it and we've been playing online matches.  It's basically Civ 40K but with zero diplomacy, only war.  It suffers from the same problem as the Civ titles in that the base game is lacking a lot of features so picking up the DLC is almost a requirement.  They go the Paradox route though and make everything DLC.  Want new factions?  Buy the DLC.  Want a full roster of units for your faction?  Buy the defence, assault, fortifications, weapons, and heroes DLCs

Geezer

I got Gladius when it was free.  Like Old World I don't have much time played.  So many games, so little time.

Old World is quite awesome - I love it because it concentrates on the ancient era only.
