Civilization VI is finally coming to Linux and Steam

Civilization VI

One of the most requested and expected video games by many players has confirmed its arrival on Linux. It is none other than Civilization VI, a strategy video game that will soon be available for both Gnu / Linux and the Steam platform.

The statement was made by the company responsible for video game rights, Aspyr Media, which has stated that It will not only bring Civilization VI to the Steam platform but it will also create an exclusive version so that its users can install it on any Gnu / Linux distribution.

Aspyr Media claims that it has received many requests from Linux users and that they themselves are users of a Gnu / Linux distribution, however will not arrive at the same time as for other operating systems, it will come a little later.

Civilization VI is coming to Linux, but later than other operating systems

The Steam platform will also have Civilization VI. In this case, the users of this video game platform You can now enjoy a campaign that we will find in the new version of this video game. Specifically, on Steam, the update is called "Winter Update."

Civilization was one of the first video games that created versions for Linux, as well as allowing private developers to create video games based on its game engine. Something that made many strategy lovers satisfied with Linux. But We haven't had an exclusive version of Civilization for Linux for a long time, something that seems to be corrected during this 2017.

I personally think it's a great option and great news, but with the advancement of the Steam platform, I think the version for Steam is more appropriate, a version that saves us many problems Many users who like to play, although if we only play Civilization, the version for Linux is the most recommended. And if you don't want to go through the original version, I recommend FreeCiv, a Civilization clone video game that has little to envy to the original version.
