Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Rise and Fall

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Rise and Fall is an expansion to Sid Meier’s Civilization VI which was developed by Firaxis. The add-on was released on February 8, 2018. As the name suggests, it enables the player to experience ups and downs. The game allows a wider range of in-game activities when compared to the basic version of Civ 6, but the rules of engagement do not change significantly. The player’s basic task is still to direct his civilization to reach its glory and dominate other nations.

What’s New?

The expansion provides access to nine new leaders and eight civilizations equipped with unique bonuses (for example, buildings or combat units). In addition, Firaxis studio has also created eight new wonders of the world and seven natural wonders, two new districts, three resources, two buildings, and four improvements.

The new feature in the game is the introduction of governors – the new characters with unique skills and skill trees. There are seven of them. After recruiting a governor, he or she helps you to improve your land and strengthens the loyalty of your subjects. Speaking of loyalty, it is also a new feature that has been introduced in Rise and Fall. If the player allows the loyalty of the people living in the city-state to fall too low, he will feel dissatisfaction. The subjects may stop paying taxes, your fields might yield fewer crops, and in extreme cases, the residents of the city may look for independence! At the same time, the player may try to increase loyalty in the free territories and thus grow his or her civilization.

Another novelty is the system of ages – Dark and Golden. Dark Ages are difficult times, but if you manage to survive them, the Golden era will bring prosperity to your civilization. Each of the ages features unique tasks and rewards. If the player’s civilization develops badly, Dark Age begins, while a perfect expansion brings you a plentiful Golden Age.

Because the system of alliances has now been extended, the player gains more opportunities to cooperate with other civilizations and thus he can receive improved rewards. New types of alliances have been introduced and divided by the purpose of their creation. If the player’s empire becomes too strong in relation to others, the rivals might make an alliance against him. After completing the alliance’s assumptions, the players are rewarded, while a failure to achieve the planned effects brings punishment.

An additional treat for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI fans is the ability to see the key moments of their glory on a timeline. The player can review what happened in the game and when it happened.
