2K confirmed the appearance of zombies in the upcoming Portugal pack for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI.
The Portugal Pack is the final piece of DLC to be included in Sid Meier’s Civilization VI – New Frontiers Pass. The update will arrive on March 25 featuring a new leader, a new civilization, two new World Wonders with the Torre de Belém and Etemenanki, and more.
Ahead of next week’s launch, the developers at Firaxis games shared a First Look video at the leader for Portugal in the coming days.
In Zombie Defence, the dead don’t stay dead for long and present an ever-growing threat to the world’s civilizations. Every unit slain in combat has a chance to rise from the battlefield as a ravenous Zombie, which will chase and attack the nearest non-Zombie; units that are successfully killed will respawn as Zombies themselves.
New trap and barricade improvements deal damage to hostile units passing through or near them and can be built on owned or neutral territory. In addition, players can build two city projects that allow them to temporarily control the Zombies in their city limits, enabling them to either redirect Zombies to directly target enemy units or move them out of the city. The “Zombie Defence” spy operation is another option, which will attempt to spawn Zombies on worked tiles in another player’s city.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Portugal Pack will be available to anyone who owns the New Frontier Pass and it’s also available for individual purchase for $7.55.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI – New Frontier Pass, features eight new civilizations, nine new leaders, six new game modes, and more to the critically-acclaimed strategy game. The New Frontier Pass is now available on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
