PC Civilization III Patch Due Soon, Mac Version to Follow?
10:04 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

A forum-goer in the IMG Forums recently posted the news that, according to the Civilization Fanatics' Center, a new patch for the turn-based strategy title Civilization III was due out by the end of this week, bringing Civilization III up to version 1.21f.

Brad Oliver, erstwhile Mac programmer, quickly responded to the post with some musings about a Mac patch quickly following the release of the PC one:

It may be slightly longer for the Mac patch this time as I have a bit more on my plate. We'll see once the patch arrives on the PC side - if it's very involved (like it adds the rumored multiplayer), then that'll obviously be a Big Deal in terms of getting a Mac patch put together.
Interestingly enough, a later news posting at the Civ Fanatics' site notes that a multiplayer patch is in fact on the way for Civilization III players, though the means of distributing that patch have yet to be decided. Readers looking for more information on that thread can find it at the Civilization Fanatics' site.
