Civ5 patch ESTIMATED to arrive next week!


  • Civ5 patch ESTIMATED to arrive next week!

    Greg "2K Greg" Laabs of 2K Games has updated his Patch-post at the 2k forums with an ETA and some new fixes/improvements:

    Greg Laabs: Also, many people have been asking for an ETA on when this patch will be released. I said I'd do what I can to get some sort of ETA and now I have it for you. However! I am about to do something I don't normally like to do: Give an ETA. Big emphasis on the E. So what I am about to tell you is the current estimation of when it will be available. This patch is not done with testing at the current time, and most everyone in software development has experienced the dreaded last minute showstopper bug that forces a delay. This could happen! So, with all of that in mind:
    The patch will be available as early as next week.

    New fixes and updates:

    • Added new tab to the Economic Overview Screen: "Resources &
      Happiness." (new 10/14)
    • Added option to activate the mp score list in single player (for “always up” score similar to Civ IV.) (new 10/14)
    • The Annex/Puppet/Raze popup now indicates how much extra Unhappiness will be assumed with each action. (new 10/14)

    • “Installed” panel now displays ALL versions of a mod but prevents the user from enabling multiple versions. (new 10/14)

    • City - Make sure Puppets don't construct buildings that require Resources. (new 10/14)
    • City - Add a Puppet city strategy that turns off training buildings and emphasizes gold. (new 10/14)

    • Taller than wide map crash fix. (new 10/14)

    • Civ V, Multiplayer - the future
      by ·Imhotep·

      Now Civ V is out for roughly 5 months and a lot of people have stated their opinion about the game. Some have expressed that they are content with the game, and that they have a lot of fun with it. Others - and seemingly the majority of players - have stated that the game is a failure in most aspects, and that they have put it aside after a few months or weeks even. I'm not going to give judgement on who is right on this matter, I'll just describe my own view on the game in general and most of all in regards to an aspect I have deeply loved with Civ IV - the Multiplayer side of the game.

    • Free DLC for D2D customers scheduled for December 2010
      by Snakpakk

      Snakpakk, Community Manager of Direct2Drive, posted in our forums in response to his questions about the 'free DLC' for D2D customers:

      "Here is the deal on the Civ 5 DLC:
      The Mongols Civilization and Scenario Pack- is a free gift from 2K for all the Civ fans out there. Due out October 25
      The Babylonian Civ pak- gives none Deluxe version owners the ability to play as Babylonians (deluxe owners already have this) Due October 25th for $4.95

      If you pre-ordered from D2D then your free DLC is due out in December. Sadly I don't have details on that yet but keep a eye on D2D's main page for the announcement. Hope this helps clear the air.

      Good news for everyone who bought civ5 through Direct2Drive! And the speculation about the December DLC release

    • Genghis Khan released as FREE DLC on October 25th!
      by Robert

      The first DLC for Civilization V will arrive on October 25th and distributed through Steam! A free new civilization and leader, Genghis Kahn of the Mongols, will be released together with a Scenario Pack for free! As a gift in answer to the "Civ Fanatics" who are "very well organized". Perhaps in response to the many troubles people had with Civ5 so far. That gift is highly appreciated!

      According to a screenshot on the Mongols ability is: "Mongol Terror", which means: "Combat strength +30% when fighting City-State units or attacking a City-State itself. All mounted units receive +1 movement points"
      The Mongols have two unique units; the well known Keshik and the Khan.

    • Civilization V vs Civilization IV v Civilization III - A brief set of thoughts
      by Skybird

      Having played Civilization I, II, III, and IV constantly since they were first released, and through the various incarnations of Warlords, Beyond the Sword etc., but having never played Civilization Revolution, I was looking forward with a great deal of anticipation to the release of Civilization V. I cannot remember the last time a PC release found me waiting in the damp chill of autumn air outside my local game store before opening, but Civilization V managed it. I know I could have bought it on Steam, but old habits... Having played the new version for the past few days, I would make the following observations:
