    Time to discuss the screenshots from the expansion announcement! :p
    https://civilization.com/news/entries#announcing-civilization-vi-rise-and-fall



    I will get the ball rolling with the first one.

    2 new wonders. Buddha Statue thingy and square european wonder.
    New district? Unique culture district? I'm going towards the first, because of the building graphics.
    Unique monument graphics.
    Mesa natural wonder?
    2 3 New luxury resource along the river. (One unimproved what looks like plantation resource, 2 mines.)

    Just right of the Theater Square. Doesn't look like a wonder, but it takes up a tile and it also can't be a rework of the Holy Site because we see a (normal) Holy Site on the left. Also looks like a wonder on the right of the oasis and something else new on the right of that.

    EDIT: Oh wow now it's bigger than on steam, guess I'll see if I can find more.

    EDIT2: Natural wonder: The arc on the left.

    EDIT3: Either a new district or a water Entertainment Complex on the right of the Commercial Hub above the city. I think the thing on the right of the wonder is a modern fishing boat?

    EDIT 4: Also Statue of Liberty confirmed.

    Also here is the third screenshot.

    New district on the snow tile at the bottom. Looks research-y to me. Not a campus, as it's next to one. Resource in the forest at the bottom right looks new to me. Above that a 4-tile natural wonder. Just above the city on the right the Kremlin (or that thing of which I don't know the name that everyone always thinks is the Kremlin).

    Parthenon (?) coastal above the aquaduct.

    Weird purple-blue thing above the Encampment of the upper city (hard to recognize as Encampment on first view), could be another new district.

    St Basil's Cathedral wonder (they'll probably call it the Kremlin again :p)
    New Palace Art for Russia
    Temple of Artemis wonder?
    Antarctic research station wonder or improvement?
    Gold/Amber resource?
    Autumnal Natural Wonder

    I'm inclined to think that bottom district in the snow is some kind of arctic research station. that's an idea i had a little while back and given is specific placement in the snow and the look of some of the buildings being very bunker like, that's what i'm thinking.

    The snow research thingy could be an UI for Russia-alt leader, too. Anyway, note it being adjacent to both a science and production district. late game way to boost those adjacenty bonuses?
    Also, there is a unit on the airport, could be a paratrooper?
    New resource of snow-screenshot could be amber. Would also fit the "russia-theme" of the screenshot. :p

    that looks like a coney island above the SoL, so my guess is entertainment complex can now be built on coast. my money is on the lower right being a fish farm. For the arch, maybe a Moab natural wonder?

    The building next to the Oasis tile could be a bazaar, interesting that it has some sort of dock/pier out to the water

    The buildings being on stilts strongly suggests so.

    Could that new purple district be to do with Loyalty? The Theatre Square is still in the other screenshots to handle culture.

    Unique monument graphics is excellent. If only they'd have done it for districts in general!

    I suspect the Purple might be a Governmental type District with a building for Congress to meet or it could be a Courthouse. At least that's how it might look in the Classical Era.

    As for the entertainment complex thing, some people over in the general discussion thread said it might be a wonder, the Santa Monica Pier or something like that.

    As for the arch I immediately thought about that thing in the Czech Republic (@Kimiimaro you know what it's called?) but then it wouldn't make sense that it's on desert.

    Oh and I just realized that you got an absolutely great name.

    The thing next to the holy site in the desert screenshot could be an (unique?) improvement. I'd say a follower-bonus one, but... there just was a whole bunch of new ones of that... :p

    I agree, looks like something government related.

    First I thought along espionage lines, but then maybe you're right - some Arctic/Antartic research station improvement.

    Also, there's a drone plane above 'Kremlin'?
