So I just had the opportunity to sit in on the presentation from Pete Murray from Firaxis Games. Of course it was about the upcoming Civilization VI. He showed us the newly announced civ, Germany led by Frederick Barbarossa.
Besides showing off the new Hansa district, I was then shown about the new religion system.
First off you have to gain faith to find a pantheon. Then later on, the player goes on to get enough great prophet points to get great prophet. Interesting detail that Pete mentioned, is that you use those points only to get a great prophet. And the great prophets are the only way to find a religion. To actually do so, you will have to move it to your Holy Site first.
This is it for the first part. More to come later on!
