Civilization V for the Mac just received a massive patch on Steam, bringing all sorts of updates, changes, balance tweaks, and bug fixes to the game. The patch also brings the Mac version back in sync with the PC, enabling cross-platform multiplayer. See below for the full patch list.
Additionally, a new map pack has been released on the Mac on Steam titled Scrambled Continents to bring even more variety to players’ quest for world domination. This map pack includes the outlines of real-world continents and locations but randomizes the interiors each time you play a new game. Imagine playing a desert-covered North America or even a thawed-out, jungle-filled Antarctica, and you’ll have an idea of some of the crazy potential maps you’ll be playing on.
The Scrambled Continents Map Pack is available to purchase through GameAgent, directly through Steam, and from other participating online retailers; the Map Pack retails for $4.99/€3.50/£2.99. The Scrambled Continents Map Pack is scheduled to hit the Mac App Store later this year. (more…)
