[Amazon.ca] Sid Meier's Civilization VI - (Nintendo Switch) $19.99

Sid Meier's Civilization VI - Nintendo Switch $19.99

And the expansion is available on the Nintendo eshop for $26.79 down from $66.99

Expansion details:
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Expansion Bundle, which combines both Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm expansions, takes the turn-based strategy classic to new heights. With 16 new civilizations, 18 new leaders, and major enhancements to gameplay such as Great Ages and an active planet where geology and climatology present unique new challenges, the pursuit of building the greatest empire becomes as exciting as it has ever been in the Civilization franchise.

The Civilization VI Expansion Bundle contains all features from the Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm expansions, that includes:

•NEW LEADERS AND CIVS: Combined together, sixteen new civilizations and eighteen new leaders are introduced. Each brings unique bonuses and gameplay, as well as unique units, districts, wonders, buildings, and more.

•GREAT AGES: As your civilization ebbs and flows and you reach milestone Historic Moments, you will move towards Dark Ages or Golden Ages, each providing specific challenges or bonuses based on your actions in game. Rise triumphantly from a Dark Age, and your next Golden Age will be even stronger – a Heroic Age.

•LOYALTY: Cities now have individual Loyalty to your leadership – let it fall too low, and face the consequences of low yields, revolts, and the potential to lose your city if it declares its own independence. But one civilization’s loss can be your gain as you inspire Loyalty among cities throughout the map and further expand your borders.

•GOVERNORS: Recruit, appoint, and upgrade powerful characters with unique specialization bonuses and promotion trees to customize your cities, and reinforce Loyalty.

•ENHANCED ALLIANCES: An enhanced alliances system allows players to form different types of alliances and build bonuses over time.

•EMERGENCIES: When a civilization grows too powerful, other civilizations can join a pact against the threatening civilization, and earn rewards, or penalties, when the Emergency ends.

•TIMELINE: Review your civilization’s history at any time with the new Timeline feature, a visual journey through the Historic Moments that you encountered on your path to victory.

•ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: Volcanoes, storms (blizzards, sandstorms, tornados, hurricanes), climate change, floods, and droughts bring the world to life in a brand-new way. Your settlement choices are more important than ever as you balance high risks and high rewards.

•POWER AND CONSUMABLE RESOURCES: Strategic resources play an additional role. These resources are now consumed in power plants to generate electricity for your cities. Initially you’ll be powering your most advanced buildings by burning carbon-based resources like Coal and Oil, but renewable energy sources also unlock as you progress to current-day technologies. Your choices about resource usage will directly affect the world’s temperature and can cause melting ice caps and rising sea levels.

•ENGINEERING PROJECTS: Shape the world around your empire to overcome unfavorable land conditions by making improvements like canals, dams, tunnels and railroads. When settling cities, consider the flood risk to coastal lowland areas, but keep in mind that in the late-game, new technologies like Flood Barriers can be used to protect these tiles.

•WORLD CONGRESS: Make your voice heard among the other leaders of the world. Earn Diplomatic Favor through Alliances, influencing city-states, competing in World Games, and more. Use Diplomatic Favor to extract promises from other leaders, vote on Resolutions, call a Special Session to address an emergency, and increase the weight of your votes in your quest to achieve the new Diplomatic Victory.

•21st CENTURY TECHNOLOGIES & CIVICS: A new era has been added to the Technology and Civics trees. Combat new environmental effects with speculative ideas such as relocating your population out to seasteads and developing technologies to recapture carbon emissions.

Just a fyi; game can become a slog in the end game, the Switch has its limits.

iOS versions are also on sale in the App Store right now too. This time it's been almost a week already. It plays amazingly on my iPad, but really goes through battery quickly. The sales are happening more and more frequently, twice this December alone, but before that maybe only a couple times a year. Not sure how long this one will last. Base Game is $13.99, Rise and Fall Expansion $20.99 and Gathering Storm $27.99 (which I am about to buy right now, very excited). The smaller DLCs like Australia, etc, are still full price. They sometimes give those away for free, so I would wait till that happens again if you're not in a rush for those for iOS. The New Frontier season pass content isn't avaliable for Switch or iOS yet. That's the content I really want to play, Secret Societies and Corporations. Supposedly on it's way to both, rumored to be released shortly after all the season pass stuff is finished being released for PC in a couple of months.

I can get just one version with all current DLC, is it better to get the Switch version or the Steam version?

It depends if you want the mobility factor or not. And your computer specs.

Then you can play it easily at full settings in 1440p, maybe even 4K. I run it at 1440p144hz on my 1070, similar to your GPU.

Go for the Switch version only if you want to play it handheld and moving around. Otherwise, the PC is vastly superior given your specs and it is probably cheaper as well.

Worth noting that the switch version does not have online multiplayer, so you'll be stuck playing with AI.

And yea like above mentioned, you'll have no problems running it. Civ isn't that demanding, and runs on my GTX 1050Ti laptop.

I know it's only a measly GTX 1650 on my laptop but it was in my budget at the time. Glad to hear though. When my financial situation is better, I plan to build a better spec game PC and keep laptop for travel gaming...

Huh? There's nothing wrong with your PC buddy :) I would like to have a similar laptop if I could afford it, but I missed GME and it just costs me ~2600$ on car repair.. It hurts.

I used to like Civ games when I was a kid but I tried this one on Switch and just couldn’t get into it. Think like someone else said, my preference is probably for keyboard and mouse.
