    Yeah. Those visuals, man. :|

    On the other hand at least it seems to be coming out relatively soon following the announcement.

    If I ever need a time sink, I' gonna have to decide between that or Stellaris. So far, I'm rooting for Stellaris, 'cause Firaxis lost the plot a long time ago.

    Also, that awful art direction.

    Even with its flaws, I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of Civ V and its expansion. I'm looking forward to this a lot, though yeah... the visuals look really terrible unfortunately.

    EDIT: Also, I like Sean Bean... but not sure I want him as narrator. There are better choices. Ah well.

    If they completely ignore everything about Civ V, it should be good.

    They won't, so it won't be.

    The trailer reminded me of the one Sean Bean did for Train Simulator 2014 and 2015. So Sean Bean has become the video game trailer guy now?

    Hopefully they'll learn from multitude of innovations in the genre over the last couple of years. If it again has no uning stacking and shitty mechanics, this might just be the first Civ game I won't be buying.

    It's fine, I'm sure that Nickelodeon art is just for, uh, presentation and such. Actuall game will look like a product for adults.

    IT'S FINE.

    Gah, my eyes. It looks like a clown fucked a bubblegum factory. Looks like a mobile title almost.

    What was the budget for this? Because that artstyle looks like a mobile game. If this is really their full-fledged Civ successor as it seems to be, someone made a huge fucking blunder in art design.

    And as expected, the streamlining continues. I guess I can't criticize them too harshly--turn-based strategy generally doesn't do well, and Civ V was a breakout success financially. It only makes sense to double down on the decline. Doesn't mean I have to like it, though.

    Looks a bit too Revolutions-y for my tastes. Hopefully they don't have the cartoon advisers too.

    Hm,no mention of social policies worries me.
    But i do like the environment shapes your future progression thing.
    But with 1upt still around the ai will probably be equally terrible as civ v.(both in terms of military and diplomacy)
