BackArrowGreen Back to Era (Civ6)

The Future Era is the ninth and final era in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. It is preceded by the Information Era.


The world contains marvels beyond the dreams of ancient prophets, and terrors more fearsome than any apocalypse. Machines search for meaning and new matter weaves dream-like forms. Choices made long ago bear grave consequences in this age and demand resolute answers. Go now, and achieve your vision for the future of civilization.

Game InfoEdit

The prerequisites for all technologies and civics of the Future Era are randomized with each playthrough. The technologies unlock naval tile improvements and upgrades for the Giant Death Robot, the civics unlock powerful new Policy Cards, and both unlock new projects. Future Tech and Future Civic are available at the very end of their respective trees.

It is not possible to start a game in the Future Era.
