  • Hi,


    I checked the System Requirement in official forum of CivilizationV, it should work fine.



    I just suggest that you could try to perform a Clean Boot to determine whether this problem is caused by third party software conflict.



    Note: Clean Boot is a step of troubleshooting, we can go back to normal by running MSCONIFG.


    Please understand, CivilizationV is not a Microsoft’s product, we haven’t much information about it. If the issue persists,  I recommend that you could contact CivilizationV support to check this issue.
