Est. Read Time1 minutes, 59 seconds

This pack, one of six included in the Civilization VI: New Frontier Pass, introduces Lady Six Sky as the leader of the Maya and Simón Bolívar as the leader of Gran Colombia. The Maya can build prosperous city centers early in the game, supported by surrounding Farms and Plantations and protected by their unique Hul’che ranged unit. Gran Colombia focuses on fast armies boosted by Simón Bolivar’s powerful Comandante Generals.

The Maya & Gran Colombia Pack also adds the Apocalypse game mode, six new City-States, two new Resources, and three new Natural Wonders. More details below:


  • Unique Civ Ability: The “Mayab” ability gives Maya housing and production bonuses from Farms, and Amenity bonuses for Luxury resources adjacent to the City Center. Settling adjacent to Coasts or Fresh Water does not provide housing bonuses.
  • Unique Leader Ability: Lady Six Sky’s “Ix Mutal Ajaw” ability lets the Maya gain yield bonuses to non-capital cities, and a combat bonus to units within six tiles of the capital.
  • Unique Unit: The Hul’che, a stronger replacement for the Archer, receives bonus combat strength when attacking wounded units.
  • Unique District: The Observatory replaces the Campus and adds a minor adjacency bonus with Farms and a major adjacency bonus with Plantations.

Gran Colombia

  • Unique Civ Ability: With the “Ejercito Patriota” ability, Gran Colombia receives a movement bonus to all units, and promoting a unit does not end the unit’s turn.
  • Unique Leader Ability: Simón Bolívar's “Campana Admirable” ability grants a Comandante General when entering a new Era.
  • Unique Units: Gran Colombia features two unique units:
    • The Comandante General is a Great General with unique abilities, including Passive and Retire effects.
    • The Llanero replaces the Cavalry. It requires less maintenance, receives a combat bonus for every adjacent Llanero, and fully heals when in range of an active Comandante General.
  • Unique Improvement: The Hacienda provides Production, Gold, and Housing bonuses, as well as a Food bonus for each adjacent Plantation. Plantations and Haciendas receive Production bonuses for adjacent Haciendas.
