Galactic Civilizations IV: EA Patch 1

Published on Friday, June 11, 2021 By DerekPaxton In GalCiv IV Early Access Feedback

*** RELEASED 6/14/2021 ***

Note: If you have preordered GC4 you will have two products in your Epic library. The main stable build of the game ("stable" being relative in an Alpha) and the "Test Build" that contains our latest changes that are straight out of development. If you would like to test this patch you can run the Test Build.

Thank you to everyone who has joined our Early Access. As you know Early Access is a time to get feedback and work out issues and improve the game before release. We are hard at work already updating the game to fix bugs and add improvements.
