Today, developer Firaxis Games and publisher 2K Games revealed the first details about the game’s inaugural expansion, which is set to be titled Rise and Fall. 

First and foremost, a brand new feature called Great Ages will be added, which provides players with different types of challenges and bonus depending on what Historical Moment they achieve. In addition to that, a new loyalty system will also be added, which will make each city have its own, fluctuating, loyalty to you, depending on your actions, of course.

Other smaller features will be added as well, including governors, new alliances, emergencies, a timeline of your history, and new leaders, as well as a ton of bug fixes, which will be revealed at a later time.
