Recently, 2K Games and Firaxis released a trailer for their newest update, revealing Babylon to be their newest upcoming Civ. Today, we got a trailer revealing Babylon’s leader Hammurabi and more details on his perks and abilities.
The Babylonians’ civilization ability is Enuma Anu Enlil, which allows them to unlock full technologies whenever their respective Eurekas are triggered, at the cost of their per turn Science generation. Their unique unit is the Sabum Kibittum, and their unique building is the Palgum (which replaces the Water Mill). The trailer explains how Babylon will be a Civ that’s heavily reliant on Science.
Hammurabi was an ancient Babylonian king, reigning from 1792 BC to 1750 BC. He is most commonly known as the ruler who could unite almost all of Mesopotamia under Babylonian rule and is also responsible for writing one of the first codes of law in history.
Babylon will make its appearance on November 17th with the Babylonian DLC Pack, and it’s also going to be a part of the New Frontier Pass. The DLC will also include a new game mode, Heroes & Legends, which will allow players to call upon mythological and folklore icons to aid them in their quest for glory.
