Civilization VI Cross-Save Support Lets You Take One More Turn On Your PC, Then Switch To Your Switch


civilization vi cross-save


A rather substantial update has arrived for the Nintendo Switch and PC versions of Civilization VI, and it is one that could create an endless “one more turn” cycle. The two iterations now support cross-saves. This means someone could start a game on their PC, play for a while, save, then pick up their Nintendo Switch and continue taking over the world on the go.


The Civilization VI cross-save feature was revealed via Twitter. So long as someone has a 2K account (which is free to make), then goes into the options section there to turn cloud saves on, you can begin sharing save files on the two platforms.


Here is the tweet revealing the new feature.


As a reminder, the Nintendo Switch version of Civilization VI is just the base game and does not include any expansions. This could lead to compatibility issues.


Civilization VI is available on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Apple iOS devices.
