Even since its launch in September of 2016, 2K and Firaxis have continued to support Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, releasing the game’s first huge expansion, titled Rise and Fall, last month. That being said, the developers known that there is a lot they can still do to improve the game, and are continuing to work on upcoming patches.

Today, Firaxis released a March 2018 Developer Update video featuring Ed Beach, who is the Lead Designer for the Civilization franchise. In the video, he details the contents of a patch that will likely come to Sid Meier’s Civilization VI later this month that will add a lot of user-requested features.

This includes UI updates that make important information easier to see. Players can now see what your allies are researching and more in-game tips to explain some of the more complex newer systems. Players will also be able to finally see a timeline of your civilization once a game is completed.

When it comes to balance changes, the Entertainment Complex has been given some new effects to make more viable and allowing certain Dutch units to be placed next to hills. This patch will also fix some loopholes in the warmongering system and tweaking the loyalty system and free cities. City-states will also become more defensive after the update so they aren’t conquered as frequently by the AI.

You can check out the March 2018 Developer Update video below. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is currently available on PC and iPad, with the Rise and Fall expansion being available just on PC.
