The fifth edtion of the world building strategy series includes a redesigned game engine, new combat system, improved visuals, and the addition of ranged bombardment.
Hey there, Civ fanatics, good news! We know itís been some time since our last patch release, but Aspyr is happy to announce that the latest patch (188.8.131.52a) for Civilization V Mac is ready, has been deployed, and should be automatically downloading for all of our Civ V fans within the next couple of hours.For the full list of updates check out the page below.
Civilization V Update Details
One feature that many of you will probably notice is still conspicuously missing is cross-platform multiplayer. We considered holding onto the current patch a bit longer to ensure cross-platform multiplayer would be available, but since there is an upcoming PC patch that would quickly break cross-platform play (due to version incompatibilities), we have decided to release this patch rather than delay the patch further. That being said, we are still working very hard at ensuring cross-platform play becomes a reality, and we want to thank everyone for their patience.
