Pacts are a new diplomatic technology added in Diplomacy.
Once you’ve formed an alliance with another faction and have achieved a high relations level, you’ll be able to form Pacts. Through diplomatic research, each race can offer unique and powerful Pacts to their allies. These range from resource bonuses to weapon and defensive technology improvements at higher levels. Once a Pact is formed, the bonus it yields applies to both parties. You may only assign each of your Pacts to one other player; Pact bonuses will not stack in cases where you may be offered the same Pact from two players of the same race. You can offer and accept Pacts by selecting a faction from the Diplomacy screen and clicking the Manage Pacts button.
