A completely free upgrade will be coming alongside the DLC

This update features enhanced water combat visuals, the addition of rafts for non-swimming units, a breakdown of a town's production incomes, the ability to queue items with prerequisites in the construction manager, a UI button for displaying resource icons on the map, and various improvements to diplomatic and AI aspects.


The scale of the improvements that we have done to implement and create the new DLC for the game means that older save games will no longer work.

But don’t worry, there is a solution!

You can use the legacy Steam Branch to play those save games. To access the legacy branch, right click Master of Magic in your steam library list, select Properties, then select Betas. In the Beta Participation section, choose "legacy - v1.06.45' in the drop down menu. This will install the legacy build that will allow you to continue with your save games.
