Steam-Error: The game is currently unavailable. Please try again at another time.
I've been playing with no problems since Tuesday, but today I got on and can't start the game. If I click on the Civ shortcut, it immediately returns to desktop. If I try and start through steam I get the following error:
The game is currently unavailable.
Please try again at another time.
Does anyone know what's going on?
try restarting steam...fully exit the program and wait a min or 2 than re launch steam and try again... i get this error from time to time with some games on steam

It happened to me, and when I went to check on my game directory, I discovered that Steam had "verified" away my CivilizationV.exe A bit later, I ran the Steam verify option and got a new CivilizationV.exe, this one was version 126.96.36.199. Guessing it must be connected to the patch.
So yeah, you might try seeing if your CivilizationV.exe or CivilizationV_DX11.exe got verified out of existence. To get it back, try exiting and reloading Steam, then right-click Civilization V, click Properties, click Local Files, click Verify Integrity of Game Cache. Good luck to you,
