You can bounce between Civilization VI on Steam and Switch with cloud saves


Is this a monkeypaw wish?

As if we needed an excuse to sacrifice even more of our free time to Civilization VI, the time-sink strategy game now has cross-platform saves on Steam and Nintendo Switch. You can start playing hunched up real close to the warm glow of your monitor and continue building your empire on the go.

Civilization VI now supports cross-platform cloud saves on Steam and #NintendoSwitch. Link your @2K Account, tick the multi-platform cloud save box in options, and you’re good to go!

As the tweet says, all you need to do is get your 2K Account situated over here, link said account to Civilization VI, and then check the box for cross-system cloud saves. Unfortunately, only the base game is supported, though there’s hope that the Switch will get Gathering Storm before long.

This is a really user-friendly feature and I’m all about it, especially for a game as long as Civ.
