Civilization 6’s battle royale is an April Fools’ that got out of hand

Civilization 6’s battle royale is an April Fools’ that got out of hand

Last night, Firaxis unveiled Red Death, an honest-to-god battle royale mode for Civilization 6. And if you think that sounds like a weird joke, that’s because it sort of is - Red Death began life as a literal April Fools’ joke.

Discussing the new mode last night on Reddit, one fan said “I literally did a double take wondering if it was April 1st already.” In response, marketing manager Kevin Schultz told them that it was “funny you should say that. [Red Death] did start off as an internal April Fools Joke before everyone on the team collectively went ‘huh...this is really fun’.”

In a press release, Firaxis confirmed that was the case, saying that “the game mode began as a tongue-in-cheek April Fools joke from the multiplayer engineering lead, Bradley Olson.” Olson snuck the mode into the basic gameplay ahead of April 1, but no-one noticed until he came clean during a meeting. Once the design team cottoned on, they set up an official play session later that day.
