I tried Civ 6 on my 13" tMPB.. very choppy frame rate with graphics settings up. Looks great as long as you don't scroll.
I think this game needs a dedicated GPU if you don't want to play with graphics at minimum.
Hmm, how'd it do with graphics setting minimum-moderate?
I am curious about this as well. I've heard conflicting reports. Some say it's fine other say it's not. Unsure if people just have different perspectives on what's fine and what isn't.
It was $53.99 on Steam during Winter Sale:Been waiting for a price drop. Looks like app store actually has it at $55 now. First time I've seen it below $60. All these great deals on PC during holiday, but Mac stayed at $60.
What is the difference between the Steam version and App store version? Is it exactly the same or does the Steam actually run from steam online.
I think they're the same. The only difference is that you need the Steam Client and a Steam Account to play the game. On the other side if you own the Steam version you can play it on Windows and Linux aswell.
The performance is not as big of a deal if the Steam deal lets you play on either Mac or PC. Were you able to try on PC? If it works I can use the MBP only for "emergency" Civ sessions.Tried it last night. It runs fine on minimum settings early game. Could probably get away with playing on Low or some other custom settings. Was getting around 30 fps it seemed like (didn't check). Only got 100 or so moves in playing the tutorial though. I would venture to say that late game will probably drop to the teens in terms of FPS. Only concern is that the laptop got very hot and I was worried about overheating. Also the game seemed to crash/freeze during the tutorial, but i'm not sure if that was due to the MBP or an issue with the game because i did something that the tutorial didn't ask me to do.
