  2. Alternative leaders for China and Mongolia;
  3. New game mode;
  4. Additional buildings and a new district type.

Vietnam & Kublai Khan Pack DLC for the turn-based strategy game Sid Meier's Civilization VI debuts today. This is the fifth DLC included in theNew Frontier pass. As part of the pass, we will receive a new expansion more or less every two months. The last one is to be released in March 2021.

The addition introduces a new civilization to the game, in the form of the titular Vietnam, with a unique leader, unit and skill. When leading this faction, we will also use a previously unavailable district type. The expansion also offers alternative leader for China and Mongolia in the form of Kublai Khan.

The DLC also adds a new gameplay mode to Civilization 6 called Monopolies and Corporations, which focuses on the economic aspect by offering attractive rewards for acquiring, improving, and exploiting resources in each era.

The expansion also introduces the Preserve, an additional district available to all civilizations. It is placed in places without infrastructure and its task is, among others, to increase the appeal of adjacent fields. There are also two new building types in the form of Grove and Sanctuary.

Vietnam and Kublai-khan require the Sid Meier's Civilization VI: Rise and Fall expansion pack. The remaining elements of the pack require only the base game.

The sixth and final DLC from the New Frontier pass is set to debut in March. We know that it will offer a new civilization and leader, an additional game mode, a previously unavailable wonder and a new map. Unfortunately, no more details have been revealed yet.

As a reminder, Sid Meier's Civilization 6 is available on PC and on PlayStation 4, Xbox One (and PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S as part of backwards compatibility) and Nintendo Switch. The game has also been released on iOS and Android mobile devices, but New Frontier will not be available on those platforms for some time.
