Big changes are coming to Civilization VI, and today Firaxis is sharing what's in store for construction. In the latest game, workers have been replaced by builders – and it goes beyond a simple name change.

In previous Civ games, players used worker units for construction. These units would take several turns to work their magic, building new structures and other must-have places for your burgeoning nation. With Civilization VI, workers have been replaced with builders. These new units are trained in cities, and they have a limited number of "building" charges before they disband. 

You can learn more in the trailer below.

Civilization VI is coming to PC on October 21.
