For many, China has been one of the most powerful countries in the world for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. So it’s no surprise that they have been announced to be returning to Civilization VI.
Joining the country is not only some unique history units and buildings, but also famous leader Qin Shi Huang. It was he who helped expand China to its massive size that stands to this day, so it’s fair for him to be leading the country in the game.
“UNIQUE UNIT: CROUCHING TIGER CANNON
Gunpowder, discovered in China around 9th Century AD, was initially only used for fireworks and celebratory activities; however, its application eventually spread to warfare. And so the “Crouching Tiger” was born, a rough prototype of a cannon that was essentially an iron tube, wrapped in thick rope and sealed at one end. The Crouching Tiger was reported to be in use throughout China in 1368 and even as late as 1592.”
“UNIQUE IMPROVEMENT: GREAT WALL
In Civilization V, any player could construct the Great Wall Wonder; in Civilization VI, the Great Wall is a unique improvement exclusive to China. While the idea of a wall is certainly not unique, The Great Wall of China is the most impressive, inspiring awe for over 2000 years.”
