Freeciv 2.6.0-beta2 is now in Google Play as a beta version. To install it, open the Freeciv app with Play Store, then in the bottom there is a "Become a beta tester" option.

Enable this option and install the app.
When you open the app, if you see "civsync.com; version 2.6.0" it means that you successfully installed the beta version.

Freeciv upgrade on Google Play and known issue

Postby javaxubuntu » Sun May 20, 2018 9:13 am

Yesterday, Freeciv have been updated on Google Play as a main release. There is a known issue when loading old games: all graphics have changed, and many people would find it ugly.

I've found some ways to turn around this problem:
    Start a new game, the graphics will display fine. (And you can also enjoy the new hexemplio hexadecimal tiles)
    If you want to finish your old game, you can use Freeciv 2.5 on your computer.
