Civilization VI gets a new Japanese promo

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Explore a new land, research technology, conquer your enemies, and go head-to-head with history’s most renowned leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Civilization VI updated to Version 1.2.2.0

Victory is yours

Civilization VI has been updated to Version 1.2.2.0, and it fixes an issue that was causing the game to crash when the player was one turn away from victory. Unfortunately, the patch only fixes the issue for new save files. It seems that save files from before the update will still have to deal with the issue.

Civilization VI bug causes the game to crash before a victory, but a workaround is available until a patch releases

Don't bug me!

Civilization VI players on Switch have noticed a rather nasty bug that causes the game to crash right before you claim a victory. 2K is aware of the problem, and have offered a workaround. They are also working on a proper patch to take care of this issue. Check out 2K's statement on the matter belwo.

"The development team has been notified of this issue and are currently working toward a solution. However, we do not have visibility on their progress here in customer support, and therefore don't have a timeline on when a fix will be implemented. A discovered known workaround is to declare war on the Civilization that is causing the crash right before you end your turn. This seems to alleviate the crashing in most instances. In order for you to know which Civilization is causing the crash, you'll have to pay attention to which Civ's turn it falls onto immediately before the crash happens. Once discovered, reload the save, declare war on that Civ and hit Next Turn. I hope this workaround helped out. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know!"

The rise and fall of an update

Civilization VI has been updated to Version 1.2.1 on Switch. We knew an update was coming, and while we don't have full patch notes, we do have a couple of interesting notes. First up, the game now includes hotseat local multiplayer, which should be a great addition to the Switch version. On top of that, the update adds the Expansion Pass pre-purchase screen to the game, which lets you get the new DLC.

EXPAND YOUR EMPIRE

Sid Meier's Civilization® VI Expansion Bundle takes the turn-based strategy classic to new heights – now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

With sixteen new civilizations, eighteen new leaders, and major enhancements to gameplay such as Great Ages and an active planet where geology and climatology present unique new challenges, the pursuit of building the greatest empire becomes as exciting as it has ever been in the Civilization franchise.

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall

Civilization VI: Gathering Storm

We don't have information on the price point for this Expansion Bundle, but it seems that it'll come in at $50. Just to be clear, that is $50 for the two expansion packs, and not the base game. In other words, you'll have to spend over $100 to get everything if you're starting from scratch, but $50 to get this bundle if you already own the base game.

Civilization VI team says there are no plans to add in online multiplayer for the Switch version

Multiplayer stays local

As it stands right now, Civilization VI on Switch lets up to 4 players cooperate or compete via wireless LAN play. Multiplayer content is there, but online multiplayer isn't a thing. Could that option be heading to the Switch version? According to the team behind the game, there are currently no plans to add in that feature, so multiplayer is going to remain a local affair. At least we still get the DLC packs!

Plans to release Civilization VI's Rise & Fall and Gathering Storm expansions on Switch this year remain firm

Two packs still slated for this year

A new update from the official Civilization YouTube channel details some new features set to hit the game on PC, but there's also a bit in there about the Switch version of Civilization VI. Back in July, 2K had stated that they wanted to bring the Rise & Fall and Gathering Storm expansions to Switch this year. Today we see that that's still the plan, which is certainly good to hear. Unfortunately, we still don't have a release date for the packs, but hopefully that info comes out soon.
