Civ Starterguide header

Religion is making a return to Civilization in Gods and Kings. Players will be able to construct shrines and even have prophets. When founding a religion, players get to pick beliefs, which provide bonuses to many different areas.

Espionage will allow for spy units to invade other countries to steal information, rig elections, and to even allow for coups. A coup is very risky, but will have massive rewards.
For more on Espionage:

There will be two new City-State types: the Mercantile and Religious City-States. Religious City-States will have more Faith points, and Mercantile City-States will have access to exclusive goods.

Combat will be based off of a 100 point system as opposed to the 10 point system it was on previously. This will allow for a slower and more flexible combat. Naval units will now be both ranged and melee, allowing ships to raid and capture other ships and coastal towns.
