The Epic Games promo codes currently available end when Epic Games set the coupon expiration date. However, some Epic Games deals don't have a definite end date, so it's possible the promo code will be active until Epic Games runs out of inventory for the promotional item. Hey all, I just downloaded Civ 6, but for some reason won't run when I click on it in the Epic Games client. When I click on it, it says 'Running' for a few seconds, but then goes back to 'Launch' and nothing opens.
Many gamers all around the world have been playing online games with friends and the Epic Games Store has given a new free option: Civilization 6. The game is free to download from the Epic Games Store with no prerequisites whatsoever. This title is normally $59.99 USD so now is the perfect time to grab it before it's too late.
However, some players already have Civilization 6 installed via Steam. As one of the biggest features of the Sid Meier's Civilization games is the ability to play with others, some players may be worried if there is crossplay available between the game if players received it from different means.

Luckily for Civilization 6 players, there is crossplay available between copies purchased from Steam and those purchased or gotten for free from the Epic Games Store. However, players should note that there isn't crossplay between consoles, PC, and mobile.
In order to quickly join up with friends, players need to use Civ 6's join code feature. The host player will have to send out the game's join code to those they want to join. Those who want to join have to input the code on their end so that they may join. This feature allows for players to play together whether they're playing the Steam version or the Epic Games Store version.
To input a code when performing crossplay, players should select the multiplayer option on the main menu and then select the 'Internet (Unified PC Play)' option that comes up. This will only work with PC versions and is not available for Mac and Linux players. Due to the influx of new players, some players are noting some server crashes or an inability to connect, so players should be prepared for that to occur.
While Sid Meier'sCivilization 6 is currently free, the currently available DLC is not, so players should get a feel for the game before making any committal purchases. Players should also note that the Steam version of Civilization 6 isn't free and the free version can only be gotten from the Epic Games Store.
