Galactic Civilizations IV v1.11 Update Adds German Language
Support, Adjusts Game Balance, and More

Read the changelog

It's here: German language support for Galactic Civilizations IV! In addition, v1.11 focuses on updating some numbers behind the scenes to improve game balance and create a better overall gameplay experience. We updated the Warrior ability to deal increased damage, but took away the ranged weapon benefits. 

Leader events are popular among our community members, so we slightly increased the chances of those triggering if you qualify for one. We also made some updates to the Cultural Assault, Countering Crime, and Geothermic Fissures events.

To see the full list of updates, check out the changelog below. Thanks for playing Galactic Civilizations IV!
