Civilization VI: The Age of Abundance Challenges You to Achieve a Culture Victory

The Age of Abundance is here. Firaxis Games

One of the unique features of the Steam version for Civilization VI are the monthly challenges. What happens is that for a limited time, players are given the chance to test their skills as a specific leader in a particular scenario. The first time that players successfully complete each challenge, they get to earn a new in-game Hall of Fame Badge.

For November, the Challenge of the Month has started with Age of Abundance. This one tests the leadership skills of the players and see if they can achieve a Culture Victory as the Greek general and politician Pericles.

In this challenge, players begin with two cities and 1000 gold. In addition, there's no barbarians present to interfere with whatever plans players have. By the way, the challenge is on the exact same map as other players around the world. The challenge ends December 12.
