BackArrowGreen Back to Era (Civ6)
The Information Era is the eighth and final era in Civilization VI and Rise and Fall. It is preceded by the Atomic Era.

In Gathering Storm, the Information Era is followed by a ninth and final era: the Future Era.


A world of information rests in the palm of your hand, and networks for instantaneous communication span the globe. Yet a unified vision of our future has never been built. We compete in technology, culture, and politics. We have deadly weapons that could destroy our planet. Lead us carefully, but boldly, and build a global community that can stand for years to come.
