Goodbye productivity, goodbye sleep, goodbye social life. The latest installment of Firaxis’ Civilization series, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, has just been slated for an October 21st, 2016, launch.

The wildly addictive turn-based, civilization-building series has attracted a massive fanbase since its debut in 1991, with “Wait! Just…one…more…turn…” being the rallying cry of the series’ fans. Avid Civilization players often find themselves awake as the sun rises, wondering where the night went, and the average fan of the series is estimated to have easily clocked at least a thousand hours on each installment since they started playing.

Dangerously addictive – but so, so good – this is another highly-anticipated 2016 game launch that I’m adding to my to-do list.
