The first part of the recently announced New Frontier season pass for Sid Meier's Civilization VI has gone live today, with the Maya & Gran Colombia Pack adding two new civs (and leaders) as well as the new Apocalypse game mode, new City-States, Resources, and Natural Wonders. However, it seems that some players on Switch and PS4 are encountering problems after downloading the new DLC.
Twitter user @kidlatdakila commented that they are unable to play the game at all, and other players have encountered the same problem:
2K Support replied to one player and acknowledged the issue:
We fired up our base version of the game and had no problems loading a game or starting a new one, but we don't have the New Frontier Pass, so it seems that this latest update is responsible for the problems these players are experiencing.
This isn't the first time Civ 6 players have run into problems on Switch following an update. Back in December players found themselves stuck when a bug crashed their game just before they were about to win following another update. The game was subsequently patched to address the issue, although 2K Support came up with a temporary workaround that involved immediately declaring war to stop the game from crashing. Far from subtle, but hey, it worked!
It's a little tough to declare war from the main menu screen, though, so affected players may have to sit tight for a patch with this one. We'll update this article if more information comes to light.
