Sid Meier's Civilization VI is getting the Rise and Fall expansion just a few days before Valentine's Day, on February 8th 2018. You'll be able to guide your civilization through Great Ages, achieving historic milestones and leading your population through milestones and tribulations to emerge from a Dark Age and into a golden era. Cities will now have individual loyalties, which you can enforce by appointing the right governors for each territory. Naturally if your empire grows too powerful or cumbersome, others will arise to challenge your rule and attempt to steal your glory, or burn it to the ground out of spite.
The trailer for Rise and Fall sadly doesn't include any gameplay, but protrays two people who keep recurring through multiple historic eras, from ancient Rome all the way up to the fall of the Berlin wall. If that doesn't make your heart swell with humanistic pride, I don't know what will.
New York, NY – November 28, 2017– 2K and Firaxis Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI: Rise and Fall, the expansion pack for the critically acclaimed and award-winning strategy title, will be available for Windows PC on February 8, 2018.
