Sid Meier's Civilization VI: Gathering Storm is the second official expansion pack for the turn-based strategyvideo gameCivilization VI. It was released on February 14, 2019, about a year after the release of the first expansion Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. It is available for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Linux.[1] The expansion adds new features, civilizations, leaders and wonders. It received generally positive reviews upon release.

  1. On September 24 2019, Aspr confirmed that Rise and Fall would be ported along with Gathering Storm to the Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Xbox One and PlayStation 4, due for release November 22 2019.
  2. Between Gathering Storm and the previous expansion, Rise and Fall, the list of available leaders has grown to a gigantic cast of 45 – or 46, if you count Eleanor of Aquitaine’s ability to lead.

Gameplay[edit]

The focus of the Gathering Storm expansion is improving the game world with the weather and how human action affects it in the last eras of the game. The player has to face how their environment changes over time, whether randomly or as a consequence of their environmental decisions.[2]

The expansion introduces natural disasters in the form of volcanic eruptions, river floods, rising sea levels, hurricanes, dust storms, blizzards, tornadoes, and droughts.[3] Players are given ways to mitigate these by building improvements such as dams or sea barriers. Additionally, some of these events can be beneficial to players; for example, after river floods and volcanic eruptions, affected tiles may have their yields increased. The frequency of these events is affected by a new climate system. Late-game buildings can have their effectiveness improved by providing with the new power resource, which can be obtained by burning resources such as coal and oil. However, doing so will increase CO2 levels in the atmosphere, increasing the frequency of disasters.[3] Players are also able to research green power alternatives such as solar, wind and geothermal power stations.[3] The Future Era returns by adding new Technologies and Civics that will be unlocked randomly.[3]

World generation is also changed: new terrain features, geothermal fissures and volcanoes, spawn along mountain ridges separating continents, and floodplains now spawn in larger clusters exclusively along rivers.[3] Mountain ranges, rivers, volcanoes and deserts are now named after the civilization that discovered them.[3] For example, a river discovered by the English might be named the Thames, whereas one discovered by the French could be named the Seine.

Diplomacy is also revamped, with the Diplomatic Victory condition and World Congress from previous games returning with the difference that you will need to accrue a certain number of Diplomatic Victory Points that can be earned in various ways[3] and you will have to win votes multiple times, showing the diplomatic leadership in the different eras, in order to achieve diplomatic victory.[2] The way in which votes are influenced are called Favors, which can increase the weight of your vote. The new Favor currency and a new Grievances system replace the base game's Warmonger score.[3] The World Congress brings the players a lot more control over building resolutions from different components the way you might a peace treaty, and the international community votes on whether or not your resolution is carried in the session of the World Congress.[3]

A number of systems from the base game and the previous expansion Rise and Fall have been tweaked, including the addition of more Historic Moments, a new Governor, improvements to the espionage system and changes to the science and culture victory conditions.[2]

Nine new leaders and eight new civilizations were also introduced, alongside a variety of new units, natural and world wonders, a new technology and civics era and two new scenarios - The Black Death and War Machine, based on the 14th century pandemic of the same name and the WWI German-French conflict in Belgium respectively.[2]

New civilizations include among others:

  • Hungary, led by Matthias Corvinus, who specializes in levying units from city-state allies;[4]
  • the Māori, led by Kupe, who uniquely start off at sea and are encouraged to preserve the natural environment;[5]
  • Canada, led by Wilfrid Laurier, which has unique units and abilities within cold climate tiles;[6]
  • the Inca, led by Pachacuti, who gain unique benefits in relation to mountains;[7]
  • Mali, led by Mansa Musa, which can generate great deals of wealth from deserts and trading routes;[8]
  • Sweden, led by Kristina, who receives benefits to culture and tourism as well as great people;[9]
  • the Ottoman Empire, led by Suleiman, with abilities and units to support sieging of cities,[10]
  • Phoenicia, led by Dido, with numerous benefits from ocean tiles and the ability to move their capital city freely.[11]
  • A unique leader, Eleanor of Aquitaine, can serve either as the leader of the English or French, and takes loyalty from cities near her Great Works.[12]

Sid Meier's Civilization VI: Rise and Fall is the first official expansion pack for the turn-based strategyvideo gameCivilization VI. Released on February 8, 2018, the expansion adds new features, civilizations, and leaders.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

RiseRise

The focus of the Rise and Fall expansion is to add mechanics that emulate the potential for civilization's rise then collapse due to a number of factors. The player will be challenged in how they deal with these turns in their civilization.[3]

The expansion introduces global eras, triggered when any of the competing civilizations reaches the required milestones. All civilizations are evaluated for their Era Score at this point based on various advancement goals, including achieving certain Historic Moments such as circumnavigating the globe for the first time.[4] The Era Score is used to determine if the civilization moves into a Golden Age (by exceeding a threshold) or a Dark Age (by failing to meet a different threshold), or otherwise proceeds into the next Era without these effects. In a Golden Age, populations of cities are more loyal to their leader, improving their production. On the other hand, populations in Dark Ages will be less loyal. If the player is able to bring their civilization out of a Dark Age by the time of the next global era shift, they can gain rewards such as new government-related edicts. Furthermore, if the player can bring their Dark Age to a Golden Age by the era shift, they enter a Heroic Age which grants several boosts to one's civilization well beyond a Golden Age. Regardless of which Age, players select a Dedication to try to follow for that Age, which earns additional points towards the Era Score by following through on the Dedication.[4] Firaxis wants players to have risk-and-reward play for challenging themselves through a Dark Age.[3]

Cities have a loyalty rating, which is affected by Golden or Dark Ages. Loyalty in cities is boosted by keeping the population happy, government edicts proper, and nearby cities loyal. However, loyalty can be lost by other government edicts, unhappiness, and the presence of nearby opposing cities. If a city's loyalty drops to zero, it becomes a Free City, no longer controlled by the player, and can be taken by any civilization through military or through exerting its own loyalty by nearby cities to convert it to their civilization.[3] This means of using loyalty to take over Free Cities can also be used to take over the existing neutral city-states, though these lose their bonuses when they are converted.[3] To support loyalty, players can create and assign a Governor to a city through the civics tree.[4] Governors specialize in one of seven areas, like military or economy, and provide boosts to loyalty and other city functions if the city focuses on those tasks. Governors can be advanced in tiers to provide more powerful bonuses, but the player has a limited pool of upgrade points to spend towards this across all Governors, making them decide whether to have one or two powerful Governors among several weak ones, or a spread-out mid-tier set of Governors.[3]

Gathering Storm Rise And Fall

Civilizations can form alliances with other civilizations based on specific goals, such as a scientific alliance to share research, or an economic alliance to specialize in trade routes. Alliances can become more powerful over time.[3] The expansion introduces emergencies which are triggered by specific events, such as a civilization using a nuclear weapon, or a civilization starting a holy war by taking over a city of a civilization with a different religion. Each civilization may become involved in the emergency, depending on the condition: in the case of a nuclear weapon, all other civilizations may be allied against the one that used it, while in the religious case, the situation will have the civilizations with one religion type facing against those with the other religion. Each side in the emergency then has a list of short-term goals to accomplish to attempt to be victorious in the situation. The first side to complete their goals gains rewards that last for the remainder of the game.[3]

New units and city improvements were added to support these features, as well as a new type of district: the Government Plaza. A civilization can only have one Government Plaza, but government-based improvements placed there will have a significant boost to Loyalty and other benefits of that improvement. The expansion also adds new civilizations.[3]

Development[edit]

Firaxis' goal with Rise and Fall was to explore the rise and fall of civilizations and make the effects, be them beneficial or detrimental, more pronounced in the overall game, according to the expansion's producer Andrew Frederiksen. He said, '[what] we're trying to capture here is the ups and downs, sort of riding the waves through history that is so paramount when you look back at our own world.'[3] Whenever possible, the new mechanics were integrated with the game's existing systems rather than built as a new system atop those.[3]

Rise

The expansion introduced nine new leaders and eight new civilizations: Wilhelmina of the Dutch;[5]Seondeok of the Koreans;[6]Lautaro of the Mapuche; Poundmaker of the Cree; Genghis Khan of the Mongols;[7]Tamar of the Georgians;[8]Robert the Bruce of the Scottish;[9]Shaka of the Zulu;[10] and Chandragupta, an alternate leader to the already-included Indian civilization.[11]

On the announcement for the Cree civilization, current Cree Headman Milton Tootoosis criticized the inclusion in the game, stating that they were not approached by Firaxis or 2K Games, and that the inclusion 'perpetuates this myth that First Nations had similar values that the colonial culture has, and that is one of conquering other peoples and accessing their land. That is totally not in concert with our traditional ways and world view.'[12] Tootoosis did comment favorably that the promotional material suggests that Poundmaker attempted to bridge peace between the First Nations and settlers, putting the leader in a good light.[12]

In October 2018, Aspyr confirmed that Rise and Fall would eventually be ported to the iOS edition of the game. [13]

On July 24, 2019, Aspyr released Civilization VI: Rise and Fall expansion for iOS.[14]

On September 24 2019, Aspr confirmed that Rise and Fall would be ported along with Gathering Storm to the Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Xbox One and PlayStation 4, due for release November 22 2019.[15]
