Civilization VI Yongle

Firaxis and 2K games released another trailer showing a new DLC leader coming to Sid Meier's Civilization VI.

Today we get to witness the third leader of the  Rulers of China DLC, which will release on January 19, 2023, on all platforms. To be specific, we meet Yongle Emperor, born Zhu Di, third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty at the beginning of the 15th Century. He is known for his cruelty as much as his role in cultivating and preserving Chinese culture. 

More leaders will be included in the package, Wu Zetian (who had her own trailer a couple of days ago) and Quin Shi Huang (who received a video yesterday).

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 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).

You should keep in mind that some leaders in these DLC are locked behind their civilization, so you may need additional packages 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.
