  • Native Embassy: Now properly constructed by Villagers as described in the update notes published alongside the launch of the new United States civilization.
  • Homestead Wagon: Now properly construct Houses for all civilizations.
  • Tupi Forest Burning (I): Now properly also decreases Construction Wagon wood cost in the same way it affects building wood cost.

Germans[]

  • Master Surgeons: Now correctly enables the training of Surgeons at the Church.

Lakota[]

  • Teepee: No longer affects Captured Mortars.

Ottomans[]

  • Food Silos: Now available, was previously missing.

United States[]

  • General: Now correctly uses a name out of a selection of random historical United States figures and no longer mistakenly uses Lakota/Haudenosaunee War Chief names.
  • Ironclad: Long Range Bombardment Attack now correctly no longer inflicts bonus damage against Docks, and now also deals 0.2x to Villagers.
  • Team Louisiana Purchase: Fixed an issue where other non-American teammates would receive Chu Ko Nu units labeled as a Bison instead of shipping actual Bison.
  • Fixed a bug where it was possible to obtain the Bastion wall upgrade for walls by sending Extensive Fortifications.
  • The auras of Teepees, Inspiring Flag and War Chiefs no longer improve AbstractArtillery.
  • Brigadier General (V): Players must now be in the Imperial Age in order to research this State Capitol upgrade, as intended.
  • Quaker Gun: Added animations to Mortar Guy attachment and removed all transitions. Now displays decoy portrait for enemies in the selected units panel.
  • Capitol General upgrade: Now properly requires Imperial Age to be researched.

  • Updated Texan Fort icons for the Texan Forts (V) card and added missing tactic icons for the Dragoon, Grenadier, Magyar Hussar, and Uhlan.
  • Corrected the spawning time of some of the free unit batches which can be enabled, so that the time taken for them to spawn is directly proportional to the cost of the spawned units.
  • Morris Canal (IV): Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented its effect from working if cards were queued in a particular way.
  • United States Marines (III): Fixed a bug that would sometimes prevent Marines from being pre-fixed with "Guard" or "Imperial" status upon reaching the relevant Age.
  • Heavy Fortifications (IV): Fixed an issue that enabled the United States to obtain the Bastion upgrade for walls if this card was sent, they now instead correctly get the Redoubts upgrade.
  • [Aztec] 6 Coyote Runners: Card reduced to 5.
  • Extensive Fortifications card (II): The United States no longer have access to this card, for the purpose of Treaty balance.
