Aspyr has just released a new update for Civilization V that, among other improvements, takes advantage of the second video card in the Mac Pro.
Mac gamers that play on the Mac Pro will now be able to fully take advantage of the machine’s second video card, which means better visuals and improved performance for the critically acclaimed strategy game. In particular, Civilization V on the Mac Pro will now support 4k monitors while running into fewer crashes. Additionally, the game should run faster (meaning less waiting in between turns in late-game situations).
This update makes Civilization V the only Mac game that currently supports the second video card on the Mac Pro. It should automatically download and install for Steam users; Mac App users can head to the Mac App Store to get the update. For even more info on how to take advantage of the new update, check out the knowledge base article over at our Support site.
To celebrate the update, we’re offering a 50% discount on Civilization V and all of its DLC and expansions. You can find them all over at GameAgent's Complete Civilization V Mac Collection. The deal is good until 11:59pm CDT, next Thursday, March 27.
