Firaxis Games and 2K have today announced the upcoming release of a new expansion for the latest entry in their long-running strategy series Civilization VI entitled Rise & Fall. What has us most excited, though, is the enhanced alliance system. "With this expansion's new features, players will be both challenged and rewarded in ways never seen before in the 26 years of the Civilization franchise". Golden Ages provide immediate benefits for players, and while Dark Ages are predictably negative, navigating out of one and into a Golden Age triggers a "Heroic" Age, which triples the benefits one would receive from a regular Golden Age. You'll now have to keep your cities loyal to your empire, because cities with low loyalty will risk declaring its independence, in turn allowing other civilizations to woo that city and add it to their own empires. But one civilization's loss can be your gain as you inspire Loyalty among cities throughout the map and further expand your borders.

ENHANCED ALLIANCES: An enhanced alliances system allows players to form different types of alliances and build bonuses over time.

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. In this system, if one civilization grows too strong then the weaker civilization can join up against the strong civilization and reap better rewards. Additionally, Rise and Fall will add "Historic Moments" that "highlight the interesting turning points in your civilizations", adding a uniqueness to each play-through.
