While not as big as an actual expansion, Civilization VI will be getting a pretty sizable free update this June. First and foremost, there will be more diverse ways to increase your production, which should greatly increase your options in the early game. Quarries, pastures and lumber mills will be getting buffed to be more in-line with mines, and perhaps more importantly, you will be able to build lumber mills on rainforest tiles!

The pacing of technologies is also getting a bit of a rebalance, with the biggest change being the increase in cost from the medieval to atomic era. This, combined with some of the new technology requirements, should make for a much more pleasant multiplayer experience.

Speaking of which, diplomatic victory is also receiving a bit of an overhaul. While you will require more victory points to achieve a diplomatic victory, there will be a variety of new ways to earn them throughout the game, as well as more World Congress interactions to toy around with. The end goal here is to make diplomatic victory a more realistic target, while also making it feel a lot more diplomatic in the process.

There's a whole bunch of other changes coming in with the June update, so if you're curious, you'll find more details in the developer preview down below. It really does seem to be a solid update!
