i'd like to know this too.
Just launched Steam and Civ 6 downloaded a 2.1GB update. Nothing under news, can't seem to find any release notes. My current version is now 188.8.131.52 (144268)
Will this affect saved games? I mean, can they still be finished? Or do I have to start a new game?
Old saved games still seem to work fine.
FWIW, the PC version is also 184.108.40.206 but with a different build number (?) afterwards, 235603.
According to their Twitter account the patch does not include cross plattform support. Can someone confirm this?
Yeah, I think Aspyr confirmed it
Yes, there's still not cross platform multiplayer support. Their blog post at https://blog.aspyr.com/2016/12/01/civilization-vi-fall-2016-update-live-mac/ confirms it. I like the way they link to the full patch (Windows) notes, and then say "most–but not all–will apply to the Mac".
I can confirm it doesn't work yet. Tested last week with a mate who was using the patched PC version. It didn't matter whether I was hosting or he was, both ways the connecting player would get insta-kicked after connecting because of differing versions. We noted that the version is indicated as 1.0.XX (yyyyyy) in the corner of the startup screen; while XX is the same, yyyyyy is not.
I do hope cross-platform support is coming soon. The primary way I play is with multiplayer with a couple of people I know, and both use PCs. I haven't gotten to play nearly as much as I would have liked to, just because I lose interest in single player games as it gets into late game.
