Flexible Tech Tree allows players more strategic choices for developing their civilizations along unique paths, there's more civs, units, and improvements to enhance and grow your empire and there's also Choose Your Leader options - most Civs now have two leaders from which to choose, with each having traits that provide various bonuses to the player and now there are seven religions in the game that are unlocked through researching.

When unlocked, the religion spreads through a player's empire allowing them to use the religion to help manage happiness, gain gold and create Great Prophets.
