Civilization VI Adds Poland and The Viking Scenario Today

Jadwiga leads the Kingdom of Poland in the latest Civilization VI update.

2K Games and Firaxis have released a premium update for Sid Meier's Civilization VI. The new update adds a new Civilization, Poland, lead by Queen Jadwiga. She was the first female monarch of Poland. Firaxis offered up a brief history for the Civ leader:

"Her reign began in 1384, with her early years being categorized by earning the respect and loyalty of Polish nobility, ruling side-by-side with Lithuanian king Wladyslaw II Jagiello. Jadwiga was an expert mediator, protected the poor, and was a devout Christian who later became canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church in 1997. She founded a special college for Lithuanians in Prague but perhaps is best known for her work helping to restore the University of Krakow, which would go on to become the center of Polish culture."

Poland's unique unit is the Winged Hussar, an armored calvary unit that can travel long distances and strike hard at the enemy. The Civ's unique building is the Sukiennice, a trade hall focusing on exotic imports. The pack includes "Jadwiga's Legacy", a new scenario built just for the new Civilization.

The second update is all about the Vikings. It includes the "Vikings, Traders and Raiders!" scenario, placing you in the role of Harald Hardrada of Norway, King Canute of the Danes, or Olof Skotkonung of Sweden in the Dark Ages, seeking to build a trade empire or spread your religion. The update includes six new City-States and three Natural Wonders as well.

If you own Civilization VI: Deluxe Edition, both packs are free to download. Otherwise, they cost $4.99 each.
