2K and Firaxis Games have revealed that Theodore Roosevelt will lead America in Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, launching on Oct 21st for Windows PC.
Roosevelt took office following the assassination of President McKinley in 1901 and, at the age of 42, became the youngest United States President in history – a record he still holds today. Roosevelt championed his “Square Deal” domestic policy, comprised of three basic ideals: the conservation of natural resources, greater control over corporate plutocracy, and consumer protection.
His efforts to regulate corporate “trust” monopolies earned him the nickname “trust buster.” He established the United States Forestry Service in 1905 and fought for the conservation of millions of acres of federal land, which are still protected to this day.
Roosevelt also coined the iconic phrase “speak softly, and carry a big stick,” describing his form of foreign policy of negotiating peacefully while simultaneously threatening with the “big stick.” Roosevelt described this policy as “the exercise of intelligent forethought and of decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis.”
Roosevelt and his America will feature their own unique units and buildings in a bid to dominate the globe in the name of Civilization as they see it with the p-51 Mustang, a long-range, high altitude fighter plane, the 1st United States Volunteer Cavalry, better known by its colloquial moniker the “Rough Riders,” and a film studio
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI will launch on 21 Oct 2016 for Windows PC.
