2K Unveils ‘Rise and Fall’ Expansion for Civilization 6

If you are a fan of city-building and nation-fighting, then you are likely intimately familiar with the game Civilization 6. One of the most prolific real-time strategy games of all time, Civ 6 has continually fed its fans with updates and new DLC. Now, it looks like the team at 2K games are giving fans even more of what they want with an expansion pack that unlocks a massive amount of new content. The expansion pack is known as ‘Rise and Fall’ and it showcases more features than AI Gandhi could shake a nuclear bomb at.

Civilization 6 launched last year to critical and commercial acclaim and since then there has been a slew of updates hitting the title. Now, fans are getting locked in for the biggest update yet. 2K released a quote and a trailer showcasing what the ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion is to offer fans saying, “Rise triumphantly from the Dark Age and your next Golden Age will be even stronger — A Heroic age.” Of course, the slightly cheesy writing isn’t what brings people to Civilization, instead, it is the depth of tactics and strategy that the title offers.

With the ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion, fans will have access to an all-new loyalty system that turns your micro-management up another notch. Cities now can show individual loyalty levels to you and that means you have to pay more attention than ever to local politics, harvesting yields and more. Of course, that isn’t the only update. The ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion also brings to life nine unique and new leaders, eight new civilizations, a bevy of new units and wonders as well as all new buildings and districts.

For RTS-degenerates who have fallen in love with Sid Meier’s work, the Civ 6 ‘Rise and Fall’ expansion could be the greatest expansion the genre has offered in recent years. With other companies struggling to balance launch-content and expansion-content, it is nice to see 2K Games get it right.
