GameAgent NonBlog: Civ V FAQ
A demo for the Mac is not currently planned.
For multiplayer, will Mac and PC gamers be able to play together?
Yes, although this feature is dependent on versioning. The released Mac version will not be able to see the internet PC multiplayer games that are currently available in the lobby. Mac users will be able to see LAN games that are available and will be able to play Mac-to-Mac multiplayer. Once we are patched to the point where we match the PC version, then this will be possible.
Will the game come pre-patched?
Civilization V Mac was ported from the shipped version of the PC release with some additional bug fixes that were released via later PC patches. We are already hard at work at incorporating the latest patches into the release version and hope to be caught up quickly with the PC version.
What about DLC?
Aspyr fully plans to support Civilization V via DLC.

Battle.net Dial-In Authenticator Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
Blizzard Entertainment has announced the release of the Battle.net Dial-in Authenticator to help users avoid unauthorized account access. The new service requires users to make a toll free phone call and enter a PIN number when signing into their Battle.net account. The security service is currently compatible with Blizzard's World of Warcraft.
Similar to the Battle.net Authenticator and Mobile Authenticator application, the Battle.net Dial-in Authenticator is an optional tool that provides an additional layer of security against unauthorized account access. The Battle.net Dial-in Authenticator is not a physical token or application run on a mobile device, however. Instead, it is a free opt-in service that will actively monitor an account and request additional authorization from the user when a potentially unauthorized login attempt occurs. (Pretty cool, huh?)Learn more at the link below.
Battle.net Dial-in Authenticator
If you sign up for the Battle.net Dial-in Authenticator, you will be asked to make a toll-free phone call from a specific phone of your choosing to authorize unusual login attempts with the associated Battle.net account. Please note that you will only be asked to make this phone call when something about your login attempt appears out of the ordinary. For example, if you were to log in from a location from which you do not typically play, you may be asked to call in and provide your selected PIN and a unique, single-use security code before access to the account will be granted.
