Civilization VI Reveals Wu Zetian

Another Leaders Pack is coming to Sid Meier's Civilization VI, which means that Firaxis and 2K games are at it again showing the new leaders off.

Today we get the first leader of the  Rulers of China pack, which will release on January 19, 2023, on all platforms. Specifically, we get the first look at Wu Zetian, the only female empress widely recognized as legitimate in the history of China, having ruled the country for forty years first through others as empress consort and then empress dowager, and then in her own right. She's certainly an important ruler in the history of the country.

More leaders will be included in the package, Yongle and Qin Shi Huang the Unifier. We should see dedicated trailers for them as well over the next few days.

This is part of the recently-revealed Leaders Pass which started with the Great Negotiators pack released at the end of November, including President of the United States Abraham Lincoln, Nzinga Mbande queen of Kongo, and Sultan Saladin of Arabia. The second pack was the Great Commanders Pack including Nader Shah of Persia, Tokugawa from of Japan, and Suleiman the Magnificent of the Ottoman Empire.

The Rulers of China pack won't be the last, as the Rulers of the Sahara pack will come with Ramses (Egypt), Ptolemaic Cleopatra (Egypt), and King Sundiata Keita (Mali). The Great Builders pack will include Theodora (Byzantines), Sejong (Korea), and Ludwig II (Germany). The Rulers of England pack will be the last and it'll include Elizabeth I (England), Varangian Harald Hardrada (Norway), and Victoria – Age of Steam (England).

Keep in mind that some leaders are locked behind their civilization, so you may need additional DLC to use them all.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, on top of a mobile version.
