'Civilization VI' Gets Its First Expansion
2K and Firaxis' strategy game Civilization VI is getting its first expansion on February 8th. Rise and Fall adds dynamic empires to the game. Borders will ebb and flow, writes lead designer Anton Strenger. Cities will change loyalties. The expansion also adds more storytelling elements like "Historic Moments," which highlight interesting turning points in your civilization. These events happen every time you play. Golden and Dark Ages will make temporary changes that last an Era. A new loyalty system allows you to flip control of cities without using military power, while emergencies trigger when a player gets a significant lead or advantage in an area.
