Civilization 6 is a popular 4X strategy game that's been around ever since 2016. But just because it's been around for some time, that doesn't mean 2K Games is going to put it out to pasture. With the upcoming New Frontier Pass, players can enjoy six new DLC packs released on a bi-monthly basis. The first two will be doled out on May 21, which isn't that far away – and they'll include both the Maya and Gran Colombia pack. That means it's time to jump back into the game again.

What's in the upcoming 'Civilization 6' New Frontier Pass?

The upcoming New Frontier Pass for Civilization 6 will include six new DLC packs in its entirety, each with new Civilizations, Leaders, game modes, and great new game content. The first drop is the Maya and Gran Colombia pack on May 21. This will add two new leaders to the game that will be revealed ahead of the DLC's release. There will also be new buildings, units, city-states, resources, and Natural Wonders. That's a lot of content for an older game, as you're likely all well aware. 

Plus, you'll get a new Apocalypse game mode, which will wreak havoc upon your fledgling Civilization, such as fires, solar flares, asteroids, and meteor showers. It's pretty dramatic, but that's what makes it so fun. Following that installment, you'll get the Ethiopia pack in July, with another civilization to be added later on as well as a new Secret Societies mode.

All in all, it's a pretty good season pass, or at least it certainly sounds like one.
