Aspyr Media has released some new information about the upcoming Mac release of Sid Meier's Civilization V. In a recent GameAgent NonBlog posting the company revealed an updated FAQ with more information about the game's system requirements and features.

Will there be a demo?
A demo for the Mac is not currently planned.

For multiplayer, will Mac and PC gamers be able to play together?
Yes, although this feature is dependent on versioning. The released Mac version will not be able to see the internet PC multiplayer games that are currently available in the lobby. Mac users will be able to see LAN games that are available and will be able to play Mac-to-Mac multiplayer. Once we are patched to the point where we match the PC version, then this will be possible.

Will the game come pre-patched?
Civilization V Mac was ported from the shipped version of the PC release with some additional bug fixes that were released via later PC patches. We are already hard at work at incorporating the latest patches into the release version and hope to be caught up quickly with the PC version.

What about DLC?
Aspyr fully plans to support Civilization V via DLC.
Check out the link below for more information.

The most interesting tidbit is in one of the comments:


Because the title utilizes SteamWorks and requires the Steam application for authentication there is no difference in purchasing the game from gameagent, at stores in a box, or elsewhere. It is the same application across the board.

Likewise, if Aspyr chooses to support Steam Play (buy one get one free), this too will be universal and will not be dependent on where the game was purchased.

So it looks like SteamPlay is still a possibility.
