"Civilization VI" is just a few days away from its official release, and it looks like Firaxis Games is busy hyping up the sixth Sid Meier's "Civilization" video game launch by releasing a brand new trailer.

Back on Monday this week, Firaxis Games issued a brand new launch trailer for the sixth installment of the popular turn-based strategy video game, "Civilization." Narrated by a man voiced by "Game of Thrones" actor Sean Bean, gamers get to see history move as the trailer takes viewers to different times and ages. Lasting for two minutes and a half, the "Civilization VI" game description on the new trailer reads:

"Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history's greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known."

Firaxis Games also released a new set of tutorial videos for new gamers who are unfamiliar with how to play and win in "Civilization VI." Tackling common questions like "How do I know which civilization to choose in the game" or "How do I make my first turns," the tutorial videos help new "Civilization" gamers get through the game.

"Civilization VI" is also now ready for pre-loading on Steam. Gamers who pre-order the game can pre-load "Civilization VI" in time for its release on Oct. 21. Steam has also confirmed all the region unlock times for the game as well, putting up an infographic on its site. For those in zone 1, the game unlocks on Oct. 21 at 3 a.m. EDT, for those in zone 2, games unlocks on Oct. 21 at 12 a.m. BST and for zone 3, Oct. 21 at 12 a.m. ET.
