In a surprising announcement, the official Twitter account for Civilization VI announced that the game now features cross-save between Nintendo Switch and Steam PC games. All a player needs to do is sign up for a 2K (the game's publisher) account, check a checkbox, and then whatever wizards run the internet and the cloud will make sure your game is cross-platform saved, presto!
The original Tweet (which can be found below) features a walkthrough on the process needed, which is so easy it fits within the span of just one tweet (even though it’s the new tweet size of more than 180 characters, but who's counting?) While there is no official Co-optimus review for Civilization VI, there is coop gameplay that was added in a post-release patch which means now is a great time to hop in with your friends.
