In some other cases, Civ 6 crashing issues are traced to software bugs with the Switch software itself. An issue like this is usually fixed by updating the game and the Switch software. And I can confirm - it is a new version of the DLC, not a patch per se, makes Switch Civ great again! Last edited by a moderator: May 21, 2020 doolar, May 21, 2020.

Today, Civilization VI comes to Switch, which means two important things. One is that you can now play an incredible strategy game anywhere you’d like. The second is that Gandhi now qualifies.

Switch Civilization Review

Switch Civ

Expand your empire with the Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Expansion Bundle.

The Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Expansion Bundle combines both the Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm expansions. With the addition of 16 civilizations, 18 leaders, and major enhancements to gameplay, such as Great Ages and an active planet where geology and climatology present different challenges, the pursuit of building the greatest empire becomes an exciting endeavor.

Key New Features

  • GREAT AGES: As your civilization ebbs and flows and you reach milestone Historic Moments, you will move towards Dark Ages or Golden Ages, each providing specific challenges or bonuses based on your actions in game.
  • LOYALTY: Cities now have individual Loyalty to your leadership – let it fall too low, and face the consequences of low yields, revolts, and the potential to lose your city if it declares its own independence. But one civilization’s loss can be your gain as you inspire Loyalty among cities.
  • GOVERNORS: Recruit, appoint, and upgrade powerful characters with specialization bonuses and promotion trees to customize your cities, and reinforce Loyalty.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: Volcanoes, storms (blizzards, sandstorms, tornados, hurricanes), climate change, floods, and droughts bring the world to life. Your settlement choices are more important than ever as you balance high risks and high rewards.
  • ENGINEERING PROJECTS: Shape the world around your empire to overcome unfavorable land conditions by making improvements like canals, dams, tunnels and railroads.
  • WORLD CONGRESS: Earn Diplomatic Favor through Alliances, influencing city-states, competing in World Games, and more. Use Diplomatic Favor to extract promises from other leaders, vote on Resolutions, call a Special Session to address an emergency.

The Nintendo Switch version of Civilization 6 does not have online multiplayer, publisher 2K has confirmed to Eurogamer.


Multiplayer is limited to local play only.

Alarm bells began to ring when perceptive Reddit user WinneonSword spotted something a little odd with the Civilization 6 Switch eShop listing, which specifically states one to four people can play over 'local wireless'. Similarly, I checked out the British version of the store, which says 'up to four players can cooperate or compete for supremacy via a wireless LAN'. Unlike other upcoming multiplayer games on the store (such as Warframe, Diablo and Pokémon Let's Go), there is no mention of online multiplayer in the Civilization 6 eShop description.

Fans speculated online multiplayer would arrive in a later patch, but Eurogamer has received confirmation from 2K that the game will not have online multiplayer on the Switch, full stop.

'Civilization 6 for Nintendo Switch includes support for local cooperative and competitive multiplayer for up to four players via a Wireless Network,' a 2K spokesperson said via email. 'It will not have online multiplayer.'

This is obviously a blow to fans, many of whom were hoping to play Civilization 6 with friends over the internet. 'If online multiplayer is not added in a day 1 patch, I personally will be hard-pressed to buy the game,' original poster WinneonSword stated. 'The online function has been one of the primary ways I played the game and its predecessors on PC.'

Other players, however, say that the news does not particularly phase them as Civilization games provide a 'solid single-player experience'. Yet it does seem a bit of a shame to limit multiplayer to only local games. Civilization 6 is encouraging us to go back in time to LAN parties, I guess?
