Civilization 6's Spring Update (the game likes to do things in American seasons) is now live, and while many of the changes it brings are just tweaks to various dials and figures, there are a few welcome new additions in there as well.


I have seen many reasons given by major publishers for the distribution of free content, but international currency discrepancies is a new one. Yet that's what is happening with Civilization 6, with 2K announcing a whole range of new stuff that's going to be given away free to owners of the game's Digital Deluxe edition.


One of the most annoying issues with Civ 6's AI since launch has been the severity of warmonger penalties. Raise a finger against another Civ ever, even in defence, and you're in trouble for the rest of the game. That's not very fair, so it's getting a fix.


Demos have been gone so long there will be younger readers who never really got comfy with them in the first place, but a some news from big PC publishers this week shows that the oldest (and maybe best) way of selling a video game is making a comeback.


Civilisation VI has had a strong launch, but there's been one thing holding it back lately: Steam Workshop support didn't ship alongside the game in October, which means the modding scene hasn't really taken off. It will now, because the game's "Australian Summer 2017" update is now live.
