Civilization V Coming To OS X In The Next Few Weeks



Although I’ve always been absolutely terrible at them, I love Sid Meier’s Civilization games, and the fourth game (and its expansions) is probably the most commonly launched app on my iMac after Mail and Chrome. I’ve been eager to here tell, then, of an OS X port of the newest game, Civilization V.

Good news for me and my fellow Civ junkies then, as Mac Rumors reports that an OS X compatible port of Civilization V will be heading to Valve’s gaming digital delivery service Steam within the next few weeks.

That’s fantastic if true. It’s hard to say, though, if you’ve already purchased the Steam version of Civilization V for PC, you’ll automatically get the OS X port. Valve’s own games give you the one if you buy the other, but other developers are not obliged to do the same thing. Here’s hoping.
