Sid Meier's Civilization VII (often referred to as Civilization VII or simply Civ7) is a 4X Strategy video game and the seventh main series installment in the Civilization series. The game was developed by Studio Lillie (tbc) and released on Microsoft Windows, OS X, Nintendo DSGo, and Linux on May 29th, 2021.

In Civilization VII, the player leads their chosen civilization from the dawn of agriculture through to the far future, hoping to achieve one of many victory conditions. The player must carefully handle many different variables and react to changing conditions, managing research, diplomacy, exploration, expansion, development, and conquest. The game is heavily based upon Civilization VI, retaining many of its changes, while also adding new features, such as new Tribe and Plague systems, a revamp of the combat system, and the return of some previously removed systems like the World Congress.

Notable Changes

CivPop Population determines how many Tiles can be worked by a City
CivFood Food increases a City's CivPop Population
CivGold Gold is used to buy items and barter with other nations.
CivProd Production contributes towards a City producing items.
CivCulture Culture contributes towards researching new Civics.
CivScience Science contributes towards researching new Technologies.
CivHapp Happiness is required to keep Population from Rebelling.
CivDC Administration is used for diplomacy and government
  • New Plague system based upon the Health system of Civilization 4
    • Plagues can now start in Cities and spread to nearby ones through City Connections or Trade Routes
    • Plagues are more often to start in Cities with sources of water nearby
    • Plagues reduce the Population of a city heftily
    • Once a Plague is gone, it cannot reappear at the same city as before.
    • Buildings and Governmental Policies can prevent or diminish the effect of Plagues
  • Movement returns to how it was in Civilization 5


  • New resource: CivDC Administration
    • Generated by certain buildings and Wonders, including the CivCapital Palace.
    • Can be used to purchase Tiles or Spies instead of CivGold Gold
    • Must be used to implement new CivPolicy Policies into the Government.
    • Must be used to make a City-State CivInfluence Dependent
    • Must be used to perform certain Diplomatic actions, like establishing CivDC Agreements
  • Puppet Cities have been replaced with CivInfluence Dependent Cities. They are similar, but provide no CivUnhapp Unhappiness, do not give all of their Yields to the Civilization that controls them, and may be released at any time. When released, they will revert to a City-State if one originally, or can return to their original Civilization. Terra nullius introduces the option of releasing previously Civ-owned cities as independent City-States.
  • City-States and Civilizations have two variables of CivInfluence Influence: CivRespect Respect and CivFear Fear
    • CivRespect Respect is gained by having goodwill towards other powers and by being strong in aspects other than warfare
    • CivFear Fear is gained by having a powerful military force and proving capable of warfare
  • City-States with enough CivInfluence Influence become CivInfluence Tributaries, donating various resources to their host Civilization.
    • After being CivInfluence Tributaries for long enough and having an exceptionally high amount of CivInfluence Influence, City-States can become CivInfluence Dependent upon a Civ in exchange for CivDC Administration
  • CivInfluence Influence opens up new options in Diplomacy with foreign Civilizations.
    • CivRespect Respect opens up new CivDC Agreements
    • CivFear Fear allows Demands to be made of Resources and other assets
  • Civilizations are able to 'claim' Borders, which cannot be worked in until a City is built there. Other Civilizations may pass through it without an Open Border policy or build a City there, but doing so will result in Diplomatic penalties.


  • Three ideologies: CivLiberty Liberty, CivMilitarism Militarism, and CivOrder Order
  • Implementing CivPolicy Policies, completing CivGov Sovereign Choices, and interacting with other Civilizations results in the accumulation of CivIdeo Ideology points in a certain Ideology.
  • After advancing to Ideology on the Civics tree, a Civilization can adopt an CivIdeo Ideology. The more points in an Ideology, the stronger it will be, giving better bonuses and allowing more CivPolicy Tenants to be chosen
  • The Ideologies all give types of Governments with bonuses dependent on the amount of points accumulated for that Ideology, and with Tenants available like Child Policies
    • CivLiberty Liberty grants CivGov Democracy, which focuses on CivDC Administration
    • CivMilitarism Militarism grants CivGov Fascism, which focuses on Military Conquest
    • CivOrder Order grants CivGov Communism, which focuses on CivProd Production
  • Civilizations with the same Ideology have better relations, with CivDC Administration discounts and decreased tension.
  • City-States will begin to support the Ideology of their Allies, making it harder for Civilizations with an opposing Ideology to change their Alliance
  • CivUnhapp Unhappy citizens will cling to opposing Ideologies and rally for their Government to switch to them. If enough Citizens do this, a Revolt could occur. This can be encouraged by opposing Civilizations broadcasting Propaganda.


  • The Government in Civ7 is similar in theory to that of Civ6, but has a much different execution
  • CivPolicy Policies are unlocked by completing certain CivPolicy Civics on the Civic Tree
  • New CivPolicy Policies can be implemented into the current CivGov Government using CivCulture Culture or CivDC Administration
    • CivPolicy Policies may be turned off at any point, but require CivDC Administration to restore at a lesser cost than what was required to initially implement them.
  • Different types of CivGov Government can be chosen with their own bonuses. Civilizations may switch between them by paying CivDC Administration but doing so will increase CivUnhapp Unhappiness for a period
    • CivPolicy Tenants are special CivPolicy Policies exclusive to one type of CivGov Government; they are more expensive but also have stronger efects.
    • Each CivGov Government has a limit on how many CivPolicy Policies it may have actively implemented at one time, normally equal its natural CivDC Administration gain doubled.
    • Unlocking every CivPolicy Tenant in a CivGov Government will unlock its CivGov Legacy Bonus, which applies to the Civilization even when they do not currently have that form
  • CivGov Sovereign Choices are random prompts that appear throughout the game that talk about specific situations and give options for how to progress. Based on this choice, new quantifiers will be added; for example, choosing to allow a worker's union will decrease Worker's building time but increase their maintenance. These also provide CivIdeo Ideology points

Resources are a big focus in Civilization VII to a higher degree than ever before. Obtaining and processing Resources is now a large key to maintaining a large and powerful empire. This fuels expansion and rewards those who colonize and conquer, or those who bargain and buy.

  • Once Industrialization hits, Iron and Coal become main focuses, and the player can begin building Manufacturies to transform resources into Products.


  • Settlers are now a Class of Unit, rather than a single type. They have the following options, depending on the Unit:
    • Establish a City on the tile they are currently on, after which they will be destroyed.
    • Inhabit an already Established City, raising its Population by some amount
    • Debate an adjacent Settle Class Unit from another Civilization, lowering that Unit's Wellbeing Score
  • Each Settler Class Unit has a Wellbeing Score, the initial value of which depends on the Type of Unit; later Settler Class Units start with much more.
    • This Score automatically goes down for every Turn ended outside of the player's territory, falling quicker on Tiles that cause Attrition like Desert
    • When a Settler Class Unit's Wellbeing score is reduced to 0, it is automatically destroyed
    • The Wellbeing Score affects Loyalty of the City established by the Unit, as well as the Unit's effectiveness in using the Debate action
  • After a City is conquered, an amount of Refugee Units are released equal to or less than the Population lost
    • Refugees may only Inhabit and may not Establish
    • No Refugees are released when a City is Razed
  • Each Player, including starting City-States, starts their first game with one Settler with the unique Attribute Dawn of Civilization, which allows them to Establish the Original Capital of the Civilization


  • When a Civilization's City's Loyalty falls to a low enough value, it becomes a City-State
  • When a City-State's Loyalty falls to a low enough value, it joins the Civilization which exerted enough Loyalty Pressure


  • CivScience Technologies and CivCulture Civics, collectively called Developments, must now be 'spread'. Upon being researched, the city with the highest CivScience Science/CivCulture Culture output put instantly recieve the Tech, and it will begin to spread to the rest of the empire. Cities with highest CivScience Science/CivCulture Culture outputs will acquire these Developments faster, as will Cities that are closer too and/or have a City Connection with another City that has the Development.
    • Any Developments researched instantly for free by a Great Scientist or Wonder will instantly spread to all cities which have the prerequisite Developments.
    • Developments which have non-City specific effects must be in 75% of all Cities to work. Other effects, like building Buildings, Improvements, Units, or Districts, can only be performed by Cities with the Development.
    • New Cities which are founded start with the Technology of whichever city created the Settler at the time when the Settler was Produced.
    • CertainCivScience Technologies boost the spreading of Developments, and the CivScience Internet Technology instantly spreads all Developments to all Cities as after it is researched.
  • The CivScience Technologies and CivCulture Civics trees have been completely redone as shown below.
    • In order to start researching a Development, all of the Developments on the top sides must also have been researched completely.
CivScience Technologies
CivCulture Civics


  • The CivCulture Culture Victory in Civilization VII can be achieved by becoming the dominant CivCulture Culture. This occurs when at least 30% of all Cities have the same CivCulture Culture of the capital, and over 80% of all Cities have a CivCulture Child Culture to that of the CivCapital Capital.


Terra nullius

Terra nullius was the first Expansion for Civilization VII, adding many new gameplay features, tweaks to previous features, five new Civilizations to play as, four new city states, and new map types, units, and scenarios.
  • New Gameplay Elements
    • Introduction system allows players to move certain Resources for a high cost
      • After researching Ecology, players are able to send Ecologists to tiles with certain Luxuries to collect them; this Ecologist can them return and introduce the Luxury to a different Tile
      • Tile Improvements on Introduced Luxuries have a higher Maintenance cost
      • Introducing too many Luxuries can result in Diplomatic penalties
      • The Environmental Damage proposal punishes Civilizations who Introduce multiple Luxuries
    • Revolution system
    • Colonialism system
    • Tribal system
  • New Civilizations
  • New City-States
  • New Map Types
  • New Scenarios
  • New Units
  • Updates and Changes


Metropolis was the second Expansion for Civilization VII, adding many new gameplay features, tweaks to previous features, five new Civilizations to play as, four new city states, and new map types, units, and scenarios.
  • Environmental damage returns, expanding upon the Introduction system added in Terra nullius
    • Rapid Deforestation and Pollution can occur which result in loss of either Production or Growth. Ecologists can be produced to fix the issue, and the Environmental Damage Proposal at the World Congress can be used to punish those who damage the environment.
    • Nuclear Fallout reappears, and it can no longer be cleared with any amount of time. Usage of Nuclear Bombs and the ensuring Fallout results in large diplomatic penalties.
    • The Hazmat bonus nullifies damage suffered by units in Fallout who have not attacked on the same turn as they would be damaged. It is granted to all units generated in a city with a Nuclear Shelter.
  • Economics
    • CivGold Gold output is now primarily determined by the CivGold Tax Rate of a Civilization
    • The higher the rate, the more CivGold Gold will be generated from Economic Activity. However, a higher rate will also generate more CivUnhapp Unhappiness
    • Affected by CivIdeo Ideology
      • Under CivLiberty Liberty, government intervention in Economics is limited. More CivGold Gold and CivGPP Great People Point are generated, but CivUnhapp Unhappiness is also boosted more. Thus, Taxes must be cut to maintain CivHapp Happiness.
      • Under CivOrder Order, the government spreads control of the Economy equally. Thus, CivGold Gold is reduced, but CivHapp Happiness is much higher. Tax Rate can be very high if needed.
      • Under CivMilitarism Militarism, the government takes control of the Economy absolutely. CivProd Production becomes very strong, and external CivGold Gold output is boosted, but CivUnhapp Unhappiness is rampant.
  • Trading system revamped
    • Trade Routes return, but are no longer reliant upon specific trading Units to function. Instead, any two Cities connected by Land can form a Trade Route after Currency is researched; any two Cities on the coast can form a Trade Route after Commerce is researched; any two Cities in the world can form a Trade Route after Flight is researched.
    • Limit on number of Trade Routes is now decided city-by-city
    • Trade Routes can now involve trading CivGold Gold for other items, like CivScience Science, Resources, Products, or even CivFood Food
    • Intracivilizational Trade Routes now generate CivGold Gold based on CivGold Tax Rate
    • Trade Routes naturally spread things such as Technologies, Civics, and most importantly, Plagues.
  • New Corporation system
    • After researching specific Techs, new Products are unlocked
    • After a certain amount of time, Corporations appear to produce these Products, or can be established by the Civilization
    • Luxuries can be moved to the city with the Corporation and it will produce new Products from it, that provide more happiness than normal and generate more CivGold Gold
    • These Products can also be traded to other Civilizations for much more Currency than would otherwise be earned from the pure Luxury


These 25 Civilizations came with the original version of the game without any DLC and are compatible with any version. Later DLC Civilizations will only be compatible with Versions of the game that come afterward, e.g. the Iroquois cannot be used without Terra nullius.

Bonus Resources serve only to increase the Yield of a tile and do not apply any specific benefits otherwise, unlike the other two varieties of Resources. Strategic resources are different, however; in addition to the effects on Yields, Strategic Resources also provide a limited quantity of resources with which Units or Buildings may be constructed. In addition to the effects on Yields, Luxury Resources also provide a limited quantity of resources which provide Happiness CivHapp to the City and can be Traded or turned into Products.

Just like in Civilization VI, Civilizations are able to build powerful constructions on Tiles under their control. These Wonders can only be built once in a game, and give strong bonuses. They also have high costs, cannot be bought, and take a long time to build. As such, Civilizations must be careful about what Wonders they choose to pursue.
