Civilization VI: Rise & Fall builds upon the critically-acclaimed gameplay experience of Civilization VI giving players new choices, strategies, and challenges as they guide a civilization through the ages. It was released on February 8, 2018.
As your civilization ebbs and flows, and you reach milestone Historic Moments, you will experience Dark Ages or Golden Ages, each providing specific challenges or bonuses based on your actions in-game. Rise triumphantly from a Dark Age, and your next Golden Age will be even stronger – a Heroic Age.
Cities now have individual loyalty to your leadership – let it fall too low, and face the potential to lose your city to its own independence. One civilization’s loss can be your gain as you inspire loyalty among Free Cities throughout the map and further expand your borders.
Recruit, appoint, and upgrade powerful characters with unique specialization bonuses and promotion trees to customize your cities, and reinforce loyalty.
An enhanced alliances system allows players to form different types of alliances and build bonuses over time.
When a civilization grows too powerful, other civilizations can join a pact against the threatening civilization and earn rewards, or penalties, when the emergency ends.
Review your civilization’s history at any time with the new timeline feature, a visual journey through the Historic Moments that you encountered on your path to victory.
New leaders and civs
Nine leaders and eight new civilizations are introduced. 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.
