Making Roads Very Important In Civ VI


How you make roads has changed over the course of the Civilization franchise. At first, you could simply build a worker, then have them construct a road. In Civ VI though, at least in the early part of the game, the caravans will be the only way to build roads between your cities. This is actually a reference to how it was done in early history.

“We thought that was a good way to go for the early game, because historically roads were built along trade routes,” says Lead Designer Ed Beach to IGN.

You will be able to unlock engineers to construct roads later in the game, but with this focus, trading, and the routes taken to make trade possible, becomes a much more vital part of the game.

Civilization VI arrives October 21st.
