Pharaoh: A New Era on Steam
By far the most important change that came to the game is support for ultrawide resolutions. This will enable the players using ultrawide monitors to fully enjoy the game. However, the caveat is that there is a chance of bugs with the image display.
Besides, in the update we also received modifications to gameplay balance. Buildings such as temples, libraries or stages for artists will be able to provide services to more people. Thus, the number of facilities of this type in a city can be reduced.
The developers have also fixed a number of bugs. To a large extent, smaller problems have been eliminated, such as broken animations of some buildings, lack of minimap updates or agglomeration of merchant ships at a single dock.
The patch also fixes more serious bugs - including those relating to work on a monument stopping after loading the game and causing corrupted saves. Unfortunately, however, in order to do so, the developers had to restore some bugs that had been removed earlier.
The list of new features that came with the update is rounded off by interface fixes - for example, the in-game icon above a building has finally started indicating that there is no connection to the road. The full list of changes can be found here.
