Key features for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Rise and Fall include:
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.

– 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.
