The new DLC pack for Sid Meier's Civilization VI dropped today, and it came with a surprise not mentioned in the patch notes or promotional materials. Users who logged into Civ 6 today after installing the DLC pack or updating to the latest patch found themselves greeted with a new multiplayer mode called 'Internet (Unified PC Play).' With no talk of the mode prior to the surprise release, it left many users wondering just what it was, and, more importantly, whether or not it enables the holy grail feature Civ 6 players have been waiting for. No, not automated city management or puppet mode, though that would be nice too. The question is: does this new mode enable cross-platform multiplayer?

Since a PC update to 184.108.40.2061, this seems to have broken cross platform play between Mac/Linux versions and PC versions of the game. Aspyr Media - the developers of the Mac/Linux version of Civ 6 - said on twitter on 29th May that: Maya & Gran Colombia Pack is available now. Log out of your Mac App Store app account and restart your Mac. Relaunch Civilization VI and your downloadable content should then display properly within the game. Right click Civilization VI from the Steam Library menu and select Properties. Under the Local Files tab, select Verify Integrity of Game Cache. Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time. Play as one of 20 historical leaders including Roosevelt (America) and Victoria (England).
The answer, unfortunately, is no. This new mode is meant to bridge players between Steam and the Epic Games store. So while cross-platform play remains available across Windows, Mac, and Linux — provided all systems have the same game version and DLC activated — you still can't play multiplayer Civilization VI between PC and iOS, Playstation 4, or Nintendo Switch. Yeah. Bummer. But there's some bright news too.
Civilization VI is now free, yes, completely free, for a limited time on the Epic Games store. That's a $60 value, at least at retail price, though savvy users could obtain the game and all of its DLC for as low as $30 a few weeks ago through various promotions throughout the web. If you want to pick up the game along with its previous two expansions, Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm, that's available for $40 on Epic. The new DLC season pass runs for the same price and includes today's Maya and Gran Columbia Pack, which you can read more about here. Head to the Epic Games Store and pick up your free copy of Civilization VI today. The offer is available now through 11AM Eastern Time on May 28th.

When the Epic Games Store made Grand Theft Auto 5 the free game of the week, it seemed like the program might have hit its peak. Despite having originally launched more than half a decade ago, GTA5 is still one of the best-selling and most popular online games on the planet, and even though tens of millions of people already own it, the influx of traffic when the offer went live last Thursday was enough to cause the entire store to crash.

Topping Grand Theft Auto 5 was never going to be easy, but this Thursday, the Epic Games Store came surprisingly close when it made Civilization 6, the latest entry in the beloved strategy franchise, free to download. Civilization may not have the same cultural footprint as GTA, but this 2016 game still retails for $59.99 on most digital storefronts. It’s not often that we see full-priced games being given away free of charge with no strings attached.
In order to snag a free copy of Civilization 6, you will need an Epic Games Store account. Once you sign up, you also need to enable two-factor authentication in order to claim free games, which is a rule that the company made on April 28th. Basically, if you want free games, you need to secure your data. In order to do that, head to your account, click on the Password & Security tab, and choose the 2FA option you prefer.
If you’ve never played a Civilization game before, they can be daunting at first, but are generally some of the most approachable strategy games on the market. As the name suggests, you choose a civilization to guide through eras, explore the map, expand your influence, and ward off any antagonistic civilizations that threaten you while engaging in diplomacy with those that don’t. Civilization 6 debuted on PC and Mac in October of 2016, but has since made its way to iOS in 2017, Switch in 2018, and finally PS4 and Xbox One at the end of 2019.

As with all of the Epic Games Store giveaways, Civilization 6 will only be free for a week, so if you want to get a copy of the game, you will need to do so before May 28th at 11 AM ET, at which point another title will take its place. If this recent leak is to be believed, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is up next, with ARK: Survival Evolved set to follow on June 4th. Not a bad four-week stretch for fans of quality freebies.
