Focused on diplomacy and espionage, “Together We Rule” introduces the Congress of Mankind, embassies, agents, a new diplomatic culture affinity, as well as a major free update focused on stealth and independent people, coming in Fall 2022.
Congress of Mankind – Participate in a cross-empire forum with the Congress of Mankind. Congress allows players to vote and decide on global doctrines and resolve international conflicts together.
Embassy – Use this new quarters to sign agreements beneficial to both empires, such as joint training or research agreements. Or use your leverage currency to force an empire to take certain actions to your advantage, such as lowering war support or enforcing claims.
Agents – Use this new unit family to collect bargaining chips. They also allow you to infiltrate, sabotage, and disinform other empires.
Diplomatic Affinity + Six New Cultures – The new Diplomatic Affinity allows cultures to play a more active role in world diplomacy.
Your active ability allows you to demilitarize a territory for ten turns, while your passive ability allows all of your units – not just the agents – to gather leverage.
The six new cultures are the Sumerians, the Han Chinese, the Bulgarians, the Swiss, the Scots and the Singaporeans.
six new wonders, new narrative events, new music – Monument Valley, Pamukkale, Chocolate Hills, Eldgjá, Palace of Versailles and the headquarters of the Congress of Humankind.
