Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is a strategic turn-based game developed by Fireaxis Games and published by 2K Games.
Gathering Storm is downloadable content and the second expansion to Sid Meier’s Civilization VI.
Being a DLC, players will need to possess the base game Sid Meier’s Civilization VI in order to gain access.
The game is based on a Maori legend which highlights Kupe as the one responsible for the Polynesian discovery of New Zealand in the 10th century. Inspired by said mythology, your role is to preside over an entire planetary ecosystem. Reap the spoils and or have your people suffer the ramifications of your decisions. Become the force upon which an otherwise damned civilization is dependent as you nurture it into a technologically advanced and functional society.
