Firaxis and 2K games announced the release date of the new DLC leaders coming to Sid Meier's Civilization VI.
The Rulers of the Sahara DLC will release on February 16, as usual bringing three new leaders to the popular strategy game.
On top of the date, we get two trailers revealing the first of the three rulers included in the package, Ramses II of Egypt and Sundiata Keita, founder of the Mali Empire.
The third leader included in the package will be Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator, also known as Ptolemaic Cleopatra, as she was the queen of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. We'll likely get her trailer soon. In the meanwhile, you can check out Ramses II and Sundiata Keita below.
This is part of the ongoing Leaders Pass which started with the Great Negotiators pack released at the end of November 2022, 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 third was the Rulers of China DLC and it included Wu Zetian, Quin Shi Huang, and Yongle.
The Rulers of the Sahara pack won't be the last, as the Great Builders pack will include Theodora (Byzantines), Sejong (Korea), and Ludwig II (Germany), while 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 civilizations, 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.
