They just changed the EULA to allow them to steal private data off my computer. Data they have no business accessing and don’t need for the game in any way, shape, or form. This should be illegal and it’s a breach of consumer trust.
Read this, this is outrageous. I will never buy another product from Firaxis again.
‘The information we collect may include personal information such as your first and/or last name, e-mail address, phone number, photo, mailing address, geolocation, or payment information,’ reads the new EULA for Civilization VI. ‘In addition, we may collect your age, gender, date of birth, zip code, hardware configuration, console ID, software products played, survey data, purchases, IP address and the systems you have played on. We may combine the information with your personal information and across other computers or devices that you may use.’
I got the Gold Edition + Gathering Storm for really cheap, just to throw that out there. While there are some things in Civ V that I wish were in Civ VI, I’m overall having a lot more fun with Civ VI. Everything is more thought provoking, from Districts, to Espionage, to Religion. There are many valid points to people’s criticism, but there are also many here that I think are absurd. Yes, the art style is better or worse depending on your style (I love it), but that doesn’t warrant a down vote. The only true major flaw in this game comes with the Gathering Storm DLC, and that’s the World Congress. I think it was done incredibly poorly and feels like a slot machine, the Civ V one wasn’t perfect because of the City-State system with it but it’s certainly better than the one we have now. Great game, but it’s not worth the full price, especially the DLC. Get it when it’s on sale.
