Civilization V Gets Open CL Update for Mac Pro

March 20, 2014

Civilization V Mac OCL Update

Aspyr has just released a new update for Civilization V that, among other improvements, allows for 4K resolutions on the new Mac Pro.

Mac gamers will now be able to fully take advantage of OpenCL framework, which means better visuals and improved performance for the critically acclaimed strategy game. Additionally, the game should run faster (meaning less waiting in between turns in late-game situations) and fewer crashes.

This update makes Civilization V the only big Mac game that currently supports 4K resolutions on the new Mac Pro. It should automatically download and install for Steam users; Mac App users can head to the Mac App Store to get the update. For even more info on how to take advantage of the new update, check out the knowledge base article over at Aspyr’s Support site.

To celebrate the update, we’re offering a 50% discount on Civilization V and all of its DLC and expansions. You can find them all over at our Complete Civilization V Mac Collection on GameAgent. The deal is good until 11:59pm CDT, next Thursday, March 27.
