    Hi All

    Civ 6 is currently on sale for PS4 and I'm tempted to bite. However a quick search shows that over the years the game has been beset by various crash causing bugs.

    As is usually the case with the internet it's always easy to find out if a game has had bugs but a lot harder to get closure on whether the bugs got squished / resolved completely.

    I see that the most recent game crashing bug was introduced earlier this year with the Portugal pack. Did it get fixed? Only partially fixed? Or completely fixed?

    If I buy the game I would be definitely looking to play Huge maps with Marathon so if anyone has managed to complete a longer game on a Large or Huge map I'd be much obliged to hear of their experience.

    TIA

    Absolutely YES.
    Happened to me only yesterday, playing on a PS4 Pro, Large Map at around turn 300 the whole game was slowing down more & more at every turn end and eventually got to the point where it just locked up, and I had to quit the application.
    All I get from 2k/Firaxis are requests for screenshots, crash reports & videos - how on earth this is supposed to be provided is a mystery they do not go into however.

    It is even worse on Windows 10 PC via Steam these days too, and is getting worse with each & every Windows Update (and these are forced too - you cannot elect not to install them but merely to delay for a limited time)
    I will never again pay for anything from 2K/Firaxis, and I own every version of Civ since the original MS-DOS Civilization.
    Disgusting levels of support right now - it's frankly a fiasco

    I personally haven't experienced any crashes, but 1) I only play Standard-sized maps at Standard speed, and 2) I don't have NFP, just R&F and GS. I have experienced some freeze-ups in the later stages of a game, but (so far) they always unfreeze, eventually.
