A few days ago we saw that Civilization VI could be one of the next free games in the Epic Games Store, and indeed it has been. You can now download Civilization VI for free in the Epic Games store, and without having to do anything special or make any kind of commitment.
The process is very simple, you enter the official website with your account (if you don’t have one you can create it in a moment), you claim the Civilization VI offer free and ready, the game is automatically linked to your account and will become yours forever. You will not have to do anything else, in fact it is not even necessary to start playing or downloading it, just claim it to be linked to your account.
Civilization VI is a very complete and very addictive turn-based strategy game, one of those that make you say, over and over, «One more turn and I leave it». The version that Epic Games Store offers us totally free is the original, that is, the base game without its Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm expansions. If we like and want to expand content, we can buy both expansions without problem.
Civilization VI requirements
To play Civilization VI we will need to meet the following minimum requirements:
Windows 7 64 bit.
2.5 GHz Core i3 processor or 2.6 GHz AMD Phenom II.
4 GB of RAM.
Radeon HD 5570 or GTS 450 graphics card.
12 GB of HDD.
In the minimum requirements we see a major error at the level of graphic equivalences, since the NVIDIA GTS 450 is more powerful than the Radeon HD 5570. Its closest equivalent would be a Radeon HD 5750. Otherwise there is no major discrepancy.
If we want to enjoy a optimal experience we must have a configuration that reaches this level:
Windows 7 64-bit.
Processor Core i5 Haswell (4000 series) at 2.5 GHz or FX 8350 at 4 GHz.
8 GB of RAM.
Radeon HD 7970 or GTX 770 graphics card.
12 GB of HDD.
In this case there are no major errors at the equivalence level, since although a Core i5 4000 has higher CPI that an FX 8350 is listed as a requirement a frequency of 2.5 GHz on the former and 4 GHz on the latter, which It helps to make up for that difference between the two.
