With leading countries pumping industrial military-sized budgets into cyber war, tools and cyber soldiers over the next few years, there is little chance of Internet not becoming a giant battlefield, one in which our personal computers will be used as units of a silent and invisible war. The development of algorithmic High Frequency Trading and powerful netbots for use in contemporary cyberwar is not incidental, but the new rule. Human agency is becoming increasingly limited. The idea for Civilization VI grew out of the escalating importance of non-human actors in contemporary networks. Civilization VI – Age of Warcraft is the third and last modification of Civilization III, a renowned game by Firaxis and Sid Meyer. It is also the final game in a trilogy made by Eastwood - Real Time Strategy Group over the last decade. Civilization VI – Age of Warcraft is produced by the Gamification Lab of the Centre for Digital Cultures at Leuphana Universität Lüneburg and supported by the European Union. The German Let’s Player Markus Riegel (aka egonson) will be playing the game and be available online to chat throughout the festival.
