Civ 6 Mountains 740x416- First Civilization 6 Expansion Revealed Rise and Fall

One of the biggest new additions in the Rise & Fall expansion is its introduction of 'Historic Moments, ' in which expands the traditional Golden Age system into including Dark Ages. "With this expansion's new features, players will be both challenged and rewarded in ways never seen before in the 26 years of the Civilization franchise". In previous Civilization games, "eras" progress for each player based on their scientific research (i.e. from "Ancient" to "Classical" to "Rennaissance"). But as the Alliance develops, powerful and unique effects come into play.

"Rise triumphantly from a Dark Age and your next Golden Age will be even stronger - a Heroic Age", says 2K Games.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI sets another milestone in the Civilization franchise, which has sold-in over 34 million units worldwide and changed the gaming landscape by bringing the strategy genre to unparalleled heights.

Civilizations will go through "Golden Ages" and "Dark Ages", much as they do in real life. You'll now have to keep your cities loyal to your empire, because cities with low loyalty will risk declaring its independence, in turn allowing other civilizations to woo that city and add it to their own empires. Going through a Dark Age obviously hurts Loyalty, but will allow for "special Dark Age policies" and make future Golden Ages easier to earn.

The Toffees lie just two points above the drop zone after losing five times in seven games since David Unsworth was placed in temporary charge.

There is a host of more minor changes and features as well. Governors will also be able to be appointed to these cities, offering unique specialisations and promotion trees that help increase a city's loyalty. "Emergency Situations" can now occur in late-stage civilizations under circumstances like losing a holy city or capital, or coming under a nuclear attack, keeping the late game from stagnation. However, then it would be open for other civilizations looking to expand.

NEW GLOBAL CONTENT: Eight new world wonders, seven natural wonders, four new units, two new tile improvements, two new districts, fourteen new buildings, and three new resources have been added. Over the course of Sid Meier's Civilization VI, many empires try to rise, but only one can truly stand the test of time.
