VI / YOUTUBE CIVILIZATION
Trailer for Civilization VI: Gathering Storm clearly shows Māori or Polynesian explorer.
Mori characters can be a playable part of the wildly popular strategy of the game.
Trailer for Civilization VI: The Storm Assembly dropped in the middle and in particular added climate change and natural disasters as a result of how players used natural resources and a world congress that players can use to achieve diplomatic victory.
Nine new civilizations will be added to this game and, while not yet reported, has a 20 second clip in the trailer hoping that Māori could be one of them.
The Polynesian explorer can be seen fleet management as they sail to the new land. He is shown with moko and khuu huruhuru (cloak).
Apparently the next extension of the Civ 6 has Māori in it. I can not wait to play so I can attack England and push my dominance by changing all the places. England becomes Aokiwikiwiro, London is renamed Tūrangawaewae-i-Te-Awa. My ancestors will finally be avenged

It was not confirmed whether to be rendered as Māori – the previous edition, Civilization V, included the generic Polynesian people.
Mike Ross of Te Kawa and Māui – School of Māori Studies says the explorer who appeared on the trailer seems to be an accurate picture, but it was unclear whether he might be considered Māori.
"It looks like a generic polynesian explorer. Tattoos look like Māori … Polynesians went to the South Pacific before [arriving in New Zealand], it could be the beginning or later part of this journey. "
Two competitive leaks, both of which claim to come from studio studies, have emerged in recent weeks. Both offenders argued that Māori would be among the new civilizations, though who would be a playable leader different – one said he would be a great explorer of Kupe, while the other claimed to be Tāwhaio, the second king Māori.
