While Civilization VI has had a rough time trying to hold on to the historical 4X crown in recent years, it’s still one of the most popular strategy games around right now. The secret to the success of a lot of games – especially on PC – is the potential that mods and other user-generated content can bring to the table. The Civ 6 mod scene is just as robust as any other, and there are plenty of interesting options for you to spice up your next play-through.
It’s worth noting that, at the time of writing, the Civilization VI mods seems mainly to be about smaller UI or quality of life mods. There aren’t the sweeping overhauls of say Total War or Paradox games; it’s a bit like when you look at our XCOM 2 mods guide, where the main highlights are smaller content packs or UI improvements. These things can make all the difference though with a game a big as Civ.
Please note that, for the moment, we’ve only looked at the Steam Workshop to compile our initial list of Civ 6 mods – we will be looking at non-steam sources as well for future updates to see if there are still any interesting mods worth checking out that aren’t on the Workshop.
