Rise & Fall expansion announced for Civilization VI


Arriving with the title Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, the expansion's brand new announcement trailer can be seen above. Civilizations can now go through Dark Ages, Golden Ages, as well as Heroic Ages, with each age giving cultures various challenges to overcome and bonuses to make use of. Over the course of Sid Meier's Civilization VI, many empires try to rise, but only one can truly stand the test of time. Launching on February 8 next year the expansion most notably features a system where your empire will have to endure dark ages and how you handle these will influence your golden ages (do really well and you'll trigger heroic ages). A new city based loyalty system also means your cities are at a constant threat from your misdirection, so you can't rest on your laurels and expect to win.

Civilization VI is receiving its first major expansion in the form of Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. These are just some of the new features being added to the expansion. Nearby cities with low loyalty to their own leader can now be in danger of becoming "Free Cities", and having cities with strong loyalty nearby can allow a player to absorb that city without military intervention-one of the few methods of achieving this in series history. But one civilization's loss can be your gain as you inspire Loyalty among cities throughout the map and further expand your borders.

Loyalty can be reinforced by appointing specific Governors, which offer unique bonuses and promotion trees.

In addition, the Rise and Fall expansion also brings more storytelling elements. Other civilizations can join together against this powerful world player, and rewards or penalties will be granted when the Emergency ends.

There's a new loyalty system in place as well, where your individual cities can now add Loyalty points on their own under your leadership. Each brings unique bonuses and gameplay, as well as a total of eight unique units, two unique buildings, four unique improvements, and two unique districts.

IMPROVED GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS: The Government system has been enhanced with new Policies and additional improvements have been made to existing systems.
