The massive Civilization 6 April balance patch is finally here, and it’s a whopper. The update introduces three new military units, four new map types, and makes a host of other tweaks and changes. On top of that, 27 Civ 6 civs (and in some cases, leaders) have been given a balance pass to try and refresh the game’s meta as the New Frontier Pass comes to the close.
And that’s not all: 44 units from across the game’s 10+ unit types have received tweaks to stats such as costs, combat strength and in certain cases, what techs are used to unlock them. The inclusion of the Trebuchet, Line Infantry and Men-at-arms has also caused a slight shift in military progression, and many civilisation’s unique units have changed what vanilla unit they’re replacing. For example, the British’s Redcoat infantry and France’s Garde Impériale both now replace the new Line Infantry.
The thrust of the update seems to be aimed at legacy content stretching back to launch and the earlier expansion, although plenty of new elements from the New Frontier Pass have also had a touch-up in the April patch.
