Sid Meier's Civilization VI Is Now Available For iPad

Sid Meier's Civilization VI Is Now Available For iPad

You'll also need a newer, more powerful iPad with only the iPad Pro, iPad 2017 and the iPad Air 2 being supported at this time. If you want to just try the iPad version, you can play the first 60 turns of the game for free. The only difference is that instead of playing the game on PC, now you can play it on iPad. In February 2017, they have launched a Linux version of the game. Bringing over the DLC from the PC version as well as the upcoming Rise and Fall expansion is in the cards, however, Aspyr says it "cannot confirm timing or availability at this time". It's the full game, making it the first legit, main series Civ game to be released on mobile. Running on iOS 11 on the iPad Air 2, iPad 2017 and iPad Pro, while the game will cost a hefty $60 (it's now available for $29.99 until January 4th), being able to play Civilization VI while on the move will be an experience that fans of the series will find worthy of shelling out for.

Civilization VI came out for PC on October 21, 2016.

However, just because the Civilization 6 iPad port is on a tablet doesn't mean that it's any cheaper; the game will still be costing around 60 dollars, which considering how much content you're getting in the game (especially since this is the full game, barring upcoming DLC) is entirely reasonable. Before today, Aspyr had only three titles in the app store - Jade Empire, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Sushi Mushi. To make a comparison, 2K Games charged players $19.99 when the XCOM: Enemy Unknown was launched for iOS in 2013.

It's worth keeping in mind that based on the information stated on the App Store page of Sid Meier's Civilization VI, the game will consume around 3.14GB of storage. The port does not support controllers. As for cross-platform play with the PC versions, Aspyr said it does not support that feature "at this time". That sale price will be in effect until January 4, 2018.
