No Cross Platform Play
As previously stated on the Aspyr FAQ, Civilization 6 Mac players?on Steam won?t be able to play cross-platform features at the moment. Both the Windows and Mac builds must be the same for cross-play to be possible. Friends seeking to cross-play may have to wait for the Civilization 6 Mac patch to play soon. Mac players still don?t have the multiplayer functionality at the moment.
Fall 2016 update
More than just introducing changes and nerfs in the new update, Firaxis also fixed some of the game?s exploits off the game?s build through tweaks. Players will not earn Gold anymore if they delete units off the game for refunds or gold farming tactics. Additionally, players won?t be able to delete damaged units. Additionally, Firaxis also removed the Ranged and Siege unit experience exploit where players could continue firing at a district with 0 HP and gain highly upgraded units in the early game.
For now, Civilization 6 Mac players will have to wait for a while if they want this Fall 2016 update changes in their game. Potentially, the earliest update window could be this December or when the Aztec Civilization becomes free in January. Stay updated with more gaming news?here on TheBitBag.
