We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

This article needs an update. You can help the Civ 6 Wiki by adding the latest info.

Civic is one of the various parts of Culture in Civilization VI. See also: Governments & Policies

The current Civic Tree taken from the September 7 Gameplay Video

Civics[edit | edit source]

  • Social Policies in Civ 5 are now replaced with Civics, which in essence belong to their own separate tech tree and utilize Culture.
  • The Civics you unlock add new cards into your "Deck". Throughout the game you gain Civics Cards which you can slot in and out of your government template for specialization purposes. Your government layout changes based on the government type you pick.
  • Advancing throughout the Civics tree allows you to unlock new forms of government and opens new Civics cards which you can slot in and out of your "Government" for specialization purposes. Different government types have different card layout.
  • Like Technologies and their "Eureka!" boosts, each Civic has their own unique "side-quest" called "Inspiration!" boosts. Some of these you'll get through regular gameplay, while others will require some extra effort.
