For Civilization as a series, the ability for the gamer to discern elements of the game without hassle is vital. As there is much going on in each turn. Firaxis has often gone with a simple and elegant User Interface for players to use. With Civilization VI, that will be no different, however, the UI will be different from previous Civilization games.
“Civ 5 has a beautiful UI – we were really happy with how that turned out. The Art Deco theme was a great fit for that project. But we wanted to do something different this time, and one theme that kept coming up and seemed like a great fit – and I was surprised we hadn’t done it before – is the Age of Exploration.” Brian Bussati told IGN
Throughout the game, you’ll see compasses, astrolabes, and various other exploring and discovering tools. However, they will not “advance” in looks as the game progress, it will remain the same. This is so players don’t get confused and have to learn a new way to control it via the new technology.
Civilization VI comes to Xbox One, PC, and PS4 October 21st.
