Cultures of Oceania DLC

Cultures of Oceania DLC: A Deep Dive

The Cultures of Oceania DLC is not just an expansion; it’s a celebration of the vibrant and diverse cultures from the Pacific region. Here’s what players can expect:

  • Six New Cultures: Dive into the histories of the Pama-Nyungan, Polynesians, Rapa Nui, Maori, Hawaiians, and New Zealanders.
  • Wonders of the World: Discover 6 new wonders, including the Aitutaki Lagoon, Bungle Bungle Range, and the majestic Uluru.

The DLC is set to launch today, September 11th, with a special pre-order discount of 10%.

The Caribbean Pirates: Free for All

As a token of appreciation to the community, a seventh culture, the Caribbean Pirates, will be introduced for free to all players. These pirates are unique, forgoing their Emblematic Quarter for a second Emblematic Unit. Players can utilize the agile Sloops for raiding and the Buccaneers for strategic advantages.

The Bonny Update: Revamping Naval Combat and Trade

The Bonny Update brings significant changes to the core mechanics of the game:

  • Naval Combat Overhaul: Experience rebalanced ships, new ship classes, and enlarged naval battlefields.
  • Resource and Trade Rework: Resource deposits now offer multiple copies, and a new trade screen allows for more strategic resource management.
  • Poaching: A new feature allowing armies to steal luxury and strategic resources.

For those eager to experience these changes, the Bonny Update, including the Caribbean Pirates, is available as an opt-in beta on Steam.

HUMANKIND continues to evolve, offering players new ways to engage with history, make strategic decisions, and leave their mark on the world. The game promises even more depth, diversity, and replayability with the Cultures of Oceania DLC and the Bonny Update. Prepare to set sail, explore new horizons, and redefine humankind’s legacy!
