Civilization VI: Leader Pass

BY Little Sister



Starting on November 21, 2022 Civilization VI will offer PC, Mac, and iOS players the ability to lay claim to the Leader Pass, a collection of six new DLCs available exclusively as a bundle. The Leader Pass will release for consoles on August 29, 2023.


Each leader will arrive with a suite of surprising new or updated abilities alongside inventive new agendas that'll change the way you play when pursuing world domination.


What if I have the Anthology Edition?

The Leader Pass will be included for any owner of the Civilization VI Anthology Edition (or those who purchased all of the content that's included in it separately at any time).


When do I get everything, all at once or over time?

On November 21 you will get the first wave of content:

  • Pack 1: Great Negotiators
    • Abraham Lincoln (United States)
    • Queen Mbande Nzinga (Kongo)
    • Sultan Saladin (Arabia) - Updated Leader

Then later in 2022 and in early 2023 we will have five more drops for you: 

  • Pack 2 - Great Commanders (December 15)
    • Tokugawa (Japan)
    • Nader Shah (Persia)
    • Suleiman the Magnificent (Ottoman Empire) - Updated Leader
  • Pack 3 - Rulers of China (January 19)

  • Pack 6 - Rulers of England (March 29)
    • Elizabeth I (England)
    • Varangian Harald Hardrada (Norway) - Updated Leader
    • Victoria - Age of Steam (England) - Updated Leader


Do some of the Leaders have requirements for DLC or expansions?

Yes, some prior DLC is required to play some content included in the Leader Pass.


Can I get just one of the packs?

The Leader Pack is a bundle, so the individual packs are not able to be purchased on their own.


What if I play Civilization VI on a console?

As of August 29, 2023, the Leader Pass is available on consoles! For more information, please see our Leader Pass Comes to Consoles article.


Do I have to buy the Leader Pass to get Julius Caesar?

No, all you have to do is link your 2K Account and you will get the gift pack with Julius Caesar as a new Leader! 


What if I have all the Anthology content and still do not have the Leader Pass on Epic?
