ANNOUNCING CIVILIZATION VI: RISE AND FALL

By | November 28, 2017

Firaxis have an exciting announcement for us today:-

“Civilizations are not set in stone. You can’t just do all the hard work in the beginning then expect your culture to stand the test of time, unchallenged. It’s not like that in the real world – or in Civilization games. The expansion we’re announcing today, Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, adds new dynamic layers onto the game you’ve already been enjoying. On February 8th 2018, you will lead nations to golden ages. You will watch others buckle under their own weight. You will earn – or lose – the loyalty of your people. The question is, “How will you be remembered?””

Read all about the expansion here and join in the discussion here.
