Rise and Fall is Civilization VI's first major expansion and it's finally available on PC. Rise and Fall adds new choices, strategies and challenges for players. This time around successful leadership can send a civilization into a prosperous Golden Age, but falling behind can usher in a horrifying Dark Age. However, there are countless ways to overcome these challenges by exercising caution instead of advancing your people as fast as you can.

One of the main mechanics in this expansion is Loyalty. You need to earn the Loyalty of your citizens to keep your borders intact, or inspire Loyalty among other civilizations to expand your empire. This is by far the biggest change which should make the game quite challenging.

Civilization was originally created by legendary designer Sid Meier back in 1991. The series consists of many turn-based strategy games in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. You must lead a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age while dealing with all of the challenges that accompany advancement. Players must wage war, master diplomacy, and take on history's greatest leaders in the struggle for supremacy.

The expansion features many other improvements to the overall gameplay as well. Hopefully it'll live up to expectations because Civilization VI set a bar for the franchise. When we reviewed Civilization VI over a year ago, we said that it "delivers a nearly flawless... experience that gives you everything you already love about the Civilization series, while adding new and interesting facets."
