A new trailer has been released for [amazon_textlink asin=’B01FVRK9DO’ text=’Civilization 6‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’n3rdabl3-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’3979dc8e-d471-11e7-a0f8-cb30c84b0743′] to promote the upcoming Rise and Fall expansion.

The beautifully rendered trailer tells the touching story of a girl raised by her father through battles and wars, who then goes on to lead her own empire. I’m always up for listening to Sean Bean narrate an action packed war story but the trailer doesn’t give you much in the way of details. Thankfully, we’ve got all the details you’d want to know about it.

Rise and Fall, Firaxis are going to bring about a lot of changes to make Civilization 6‘s strategy gameplay deeper and more engaging. Here’s everything that will be coming with it:

  • GREAT AGES: 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.
  • LOYALTY: Cities now have individual Loyalty to your leadership – let it fall too low, and face the consequences of low yields, revolts, and the potential to lose your city to another civilization, or its own independence. But one civilization’s loss can be your gain as you inspire Loyalty among cities throughout the map and further expand your borders.
  • GOVERNORS: Recruit, appoint, and upgrade powerful characters with unique specialization bonuses and promotion trees to customize your cities, and reinforce Loyalty.
  • ENHANCED ALLIANCES: An enhanced alliances system allows players to form different types of alliances and build bonuses over time.
  • EMERGENCIES:  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.
  • TIMELINE: 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.
  • NEW GLOBAL CONTENT: Eight new world wonders, seven natural wonders, four new units, two new tile improvements, two new districts, fourteen new buildings, and three new resources have been added.
  • IMPROVED GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS:  The Government system has been enhanced with new Policies and additional improvements have been made to existing systems.

So there you have it. Civilization 6 is about to get a whole lot bigger and better with Rise and Fall coming out on February 8 2018 for £24.99
