Civilization VI goes to England and France

For the first time in the Civilization franchise’s history, a leader will be able to rule two civilisation: England and France. Led in the game by Eleanor of Aquitaine, who was one of the most influential figures of the Middle Ages, thanks to her vast land holding inherited at a young age. This made her one of the most sought-after brides of the time.

Eleanor, duchess of Aquitaine, was queen consort of France from 1137 to 1152, followed by queen consort of England from 1154 to 1189. She was a leader in the Second Crusade and is credited with establishing many of the royal court’s chivalric rituals, including establishing the social codes rooted in Christianity, which guided the behaviour of knights and women of high social standing.

Eleanor’s unique ability – Court of Love

“Great Works” in Eleanor’s cities each cause a loss of Loyalty per turn in nearby foreign cities. A city that leaves another civilization due to a loss of Loyalty, and is currently receiving the most Loyalty per turn from Eleanor, skips the Free City step and instantly joins her civilization.

The game expansion will be released for Windows on 14 February.

Team17 announces indie game partnership

The creators of the popular Worms franchise, Team17, have partnered with Aggro Crab Games, to create Going Under, a fast-paced dungeon crawler.

Published

Scheduled for a 2020 release on PC and console platforms, Going Under is a fast-paced, satirical, dungeon crawler set among the ruins of failed and poorly conceived tech startups. Following the adventures of Jackie, an intern at carbonated drinks startup Fizzle, players venture into the dystopian and chaotic depths of the dungeons below the bright and bubbly campus building, utilising the junk found from fallen companies to battle a variety of monsters and epic bosses.

Caelan Pollock, Co-Founder, Aggro Crab Games, says: “We’re thrilled to finally announce our partnership with Team17. Our first game out of college, Treadnauts, was heavily inspired by the Worms franchise, so to have signed with Team17’s games label for our sophomore title is a perfect fit. Going Under is an offbeat and chaotic dungeon crawler that’ll feel extremely relevant in today’s fast-paced, high-tech world, and we’re looking forward to sharing more of the game in the months ahead.”

Debbie Bestwick MBE, Chief Executive Officer, Team17 Digital, says: “The aim of Team17’s games label is to nurture the very best indie developers around the world and help them bring their games to market. Aggro Crab Games immediately caught our eye with Going Under, a satirical take on failed tech startups crossed with dungeon crawler gameplay. We’re excited to start eradicating destructive company cultures and redefining the meaning of boss fights next year!”

Today’s announcement is the latest in a series of recent partnerships signed by Team17 that continue to expand the games label’s portfolio of titles into next year and beyond. Going Under will be released on PC and consoles in 2020.
