Civilization V patchato a breve
Nonostante siano passate solo poche settimane dall'uscita di Civilization V, l'altissima attenzione degli appassionati della saga di Sid Meier per i dettagli e la complessità della struttura di gioco dell'ultimo capolavoro di Firaxis Games hanno indotto gli sviluppatori statunitensi ad attivarsi immediatamente per realizzare una patch cumulativa da pubblicare a breve per risolvere tutta una serie di bug e per rendere più "coerenti" alcuni parametri.
Proprio per il volume spropositato di modifiche più o meno importanti da apportare all'impianto di gioco di Civilization V, la patch in questione non ha ancora una data d'uscita precisa: per sapere però quali e quanti novità verranno introdotte con questa mega-patch correttiva, potete sempre seguirci dopo la pausa (la lista, divisa per categorie e tratta direttamente dal forum ufficiale di 2K Games, purtroppo è disponibile solo in lingua inglese).
