The first major new mechanic is the Golden and Dark Age system.
NEW GLOBAL CONTENT: Eight new world wonders, seven natural wonders, four new units, two new tile improvements, two new districts, fourteen new buildings, and three new resources have been added. This directly ties into Golden, Dark and Heroic Ages in how Loyalty is swayed and therefore sways others. A new loyalty system will reward or punish you for your management your cities. Rise triumphantly from a Dark Age, and your next Golden Age will be even stronger - a Heroic Age.
More information about the Rise and Fall expansion can be found on the aforementioned Civilization website, including new info on Alliances, Emergencies, and the addition of the great female leaders of history. "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". If it falls too low you can expect low yields, revolts and - potentially - the loss of the city to another civilisation. Civilization has been one of gaming's greatest and most cherished time sinks, and it looks like Civlization VI: Rise and Fall is determined to preserve that history.

GOVERNORS: Recruit, appoint, and upgrade powerful characters with unique specialization bonuses and promotion trees to customize your cities, and reinforce Loyalty.
Elsewhere, a new enhanced alliance system will allow players to form different types of alliances, and you'll be able to go into an Emergency state in which other Civs can temporarily form an alliance to take down a threat that may be becoming too powerful in exchange for bonuses or, indeed, penalties, when the Emergency period ends. The new content will release on February 8, bringing with it major changes to the ebb and flow of gameplay. Based on an exploration of the weight of historical moments, the loyalty of an empire's people, and the dramatic shifts between a civilization's brightest and darkest ages, Rise and Fall has some heady themes and interesting gameplay ideas to back them up. Instead, those new leaders and civilizations will be revealed over the coming weeks.
