Egypt is one of the civilizations in Civilization VI.

Description[ | ]

In Civilization VI, each civilization has two abilities. One is based on what the nation has done throughout history and the other is tailored to what happened during the ruler's reign. Cleopatra leads the Egyptian civilization. Cleopatra is famous not only for rising to power in Egypt but also for her famous affairs with both Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony believed to have changed the course of history in both Egypt and Rome.

The Egyptian civ special ability is called Iteru. It allows Egypt to build districts and wonders faster if they're located on Rivers. Floodplains do not block the placement of Districts and Wonders.

Cleopatra gives Egypt improvements to Trade Routes. External Trade Routes from Egypt give Egypt additional Gold. Trade Routes from other civilizations give Egypt additional gold as well and food for the originator. This makes Egypt an attractive trading partner and a valuable ally.

Egypt's unique unit is the Maryannu Chariot Archer, which gets bonus movement when it starts on open terrain. Early in the game is it best at fast attacks. Its mobility means it can respond to wide range of threats.

Egypt also gets the Sphinx as a unique tile improvement. Sphinxes provide Icon Faith Faith and Icon Culture Culture and get bonuses when build adjacent to a Wonder.

The Egyptians are a wonder focus civilization and especially powerful in the early game when they start near a river. They're also uniquely valuable partners to other civilizations, so rather than isolating themselves, the Egyptians remain central to the political landscape throughout the game.
