Requires Sid Meier's Civilization VI (base game) to use this DLC
Civilization VI is a game about building an empire to stand the test of time, and the Rise and Fall expansion brings new choices, strategies, and challenges for players as they guide a civilization through the ages. Can you inspire the Loyalty of people around the world, or will you lose cities to your rivals? Will you establish a Golden Age for your civilization, or be mired in a Dark Age? In Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, you truly become a leader for the ages.
Successful leadership of a civilization can send it into a prosperous Golden Age, but falling behind can usher in a Dark Age. Respond well to the challenges of a Dark Age, and your civilization can rise again into renewal with a Heroic Age.
Encourage the Loyalty of your citizens to keep your borders intact, or inspire Loyalty among other civilizations to expand your empire. World borders continually shift and change as Free Cities emerge from empires, and neighbors compete for the Loyalty of cities across the map.
With the new the Governor system, players are able to further customize and specialize their cities, as well as react to the new challenges of Dark Ages and Loyalty. Each of the seven unique governors has its own promotion tree, and lends itself to different playstyles and strategies.
In addition to these new systems, Civilization VI: Rise and Fall introduces eight new civilizations and nine new leaders. Eight new world wonders can be constructed, as well as a variety of new units, districts, buildings, and improvements. There are more ways than ever before to build, conquer, and inspire.
Civilization 6 Rise and Fall is the first big expansion for the Firaxis strategy game. Releasing on February 8, 2018, Civ 6 Rise and Fall and will introduce eight new civs and nine new leaders to the game, including Korea, The Netherlands, Mongolia, and The Cree.
Golden Ages are back for Civilization VI Rise and Fall, but this time they are also joined by Dark Ages and Heroic Ages. Once one civ meets the requirements, a new age dawns and everyone’s performance is judged, bringing you into an age that suits where your civilization is currently at. This all comes down to your Era score, so keep an eye on your performance as each game progresses.
If you find yourself in the Dark Ages, your citizen loyalty will be at an all-time low. Fortunately, there are some exclusive government policies available for those in hard times, giving you a chance to pull yourself out for the next era, if you play clever.
Speaking of loyalty, each city in Civilization 6 Rise and Fall will have its own individual loyalty rating. This means you can’t be like the UK, investing everything into your capital city and neglecting the North, you need to keep an eye on all of your territory. If you neglect a city too much, they could revolt and declare themselves an independent state. Then you will have to go in and take it back by force.
If another civ gets too far ahead, an emergency can trigger. Perhaps a rival civ has launched its first nuke - emergencies give you the opportunity to form a pact with another civ so you stand a chance should things turn nasty.
On top of these new systems, there will be a host of new Wonders to erect, including the Statue of Liberty and the Taj Mahal. This is without mentioning the new units such as the Spec Ops soldier and the Drone.
