Edit: Title updated since website price changed to $29.99 but in store price is still $19.99 (for now).

 

 

This just went on sale this morning, not sure for how long.

 

Finally at the price I was willing to pay for it.  Even better with GCU.

Enjoy!

I've heard it doesn't run that well on switch.  Anyone have any experience with it?

I've had no issues with it on the switch. When you play for long sessions the frame rate can bog down but a simple and save and quit reset will fix it.

Thanks. I was willing to buy this game at $23.99 after GCU. The lowest i’ve noticed it go was $39.99 after GCU so this was a no-brainer for me.

I really wanted to like this game more, but if you haven’t had a ton of Civ experience or at least lately, it has a very intense learning curve. I didn’t even find the tutorial helpful at all on the game and eventually just frustratingly gave up. I was excited from the time this was announced as these games are great for portability. I was just disappointed that it didn’t do more in the beginning to help a returning player.

However if you were going to get this, yup, the price is right and has not been lower yet on the Switch!!

For 20 bucks this is a steal, but they really need to work on getting the expansions for this on the Switch.

That’s what I was worried about, I’ll pass on it. Thanks for posting.

I am planning on picking up a copy (or 2) depending on the answer to this question.  I know that there is no online multiplayer but I heard there is local multi-system multiplayer.  Is this true?  How hard is it to do?   

 

Can you just pop in two copies in two systems and easily start playing together?   

 

Any insight for a complete newbie to this game would be appreciated!

They need to port this to Xbox One.


Trades in for $20 after current promo at Gamestop if you buy it and don't like it.

Might of been a price error, it’s out of stock online and does not give the option to pick up in store.

Hm. Said my store had 3 copies an hour ago. Now the website is saying sold out with no store stock count.

I've been playing it for a few weeks on the Switch. The only issues with performance would be long wait times for the AI to make turns in the late game and long loading times but these are the same issues you would encounter on PC (and the suspend feature negates the loading time issue for the most part).

I do wish the DLC would get ported, but for anyone new to this version there is already a lot to get used to with the new district and wonder placement mechanics. The tutorials could stand to be a lot more detailed but after a game you have a much better sense of what to expect.

Walked down to the store on a whim and they still had two copies. Price label on the rack says 19.99.

Yoink.

Thanks everyone for the updates that in store this is still $19.99.  Hopefully it stays that way for another day or two.
