Civilization VI: Rise and Fall Announced; Brings New Co-Op Benefits

Civilization VI’s first expansion Rise and Fall Release date and details

More information about the Rise and Fall expansion can be found on the aforementioned Civilization website, including new info on Alliances, Emergencies, and the addition of the great female leaders of history. This directly ties into Golden, Dark and Heroic Ages in how Loyalty is swayed and therefore sways others.

Civilization VI has some enormous changes on the way-and that's before we've even mentioned the "nine new leaders and eight new civilizations" to be unveiled as the February release date draws near.

Rise and Fall brings new choices, strategies, and challenges for players as they guide a civilization through the ages.

The big new features for the expansion include a new Great Ages mechanic, which will provide new challenges and bonuses as you go through Golden Ages and Dark Ages through Historic Moments.


Firaxis is announcing the upcoming Rise and Fall expansion for Sid Meier's Civilization VI, the first expansion for the title. Entitled Rise and Fall, this expansion looks jam-packed with new features, civilizations, and leaders. If you escape from a Dark Age is especially successful, you will enter a Heroic Age, a stronger version of a Golden Age. "You could even sway cities from other civilizations to join you".

Furthermore, the cities will have individual loyalty to the leadership and if it falls too low then obviously the yields will be low and the city might be lost to another civilization. Of course you can also work to grow loyalty to your civilization in another's cities as well, turn their loss to your gain. Since there's one more new leader than there are civilizations, it stands to reason that an existing civilization - or perhaps one of the new ones - will get a second leader, much in the same way Greece had two leaders in the base game. Governors, a new unit, can be recruited and used to keep a city loyal, while also conferring a wide variety of bonuses that can aid a city's specialization.

ENHANCED ALLIANCES: An enhanced alliances system allows players to form different types of alliances and build bonuses over time.

Sid Meier's Civilization® VI: Rise and Fallwill be available for PC on February 8, 2018.
