Sid Meier's Civilization VI iPad Edition Now Available

Civilization VI was released all the way back in October a year ago, but now it turns out that a whole new group of players can join the fun, as the game has been released on iPad, requiring a rather hefty 3.14GB download to get going.

The iOS version of Civilization 6 requires at least iOS 11.1.2, and will only run on an iPad Air 2, a fifth-generation iPad (aka the 2017 model) or an iPad Pro.

Luckily, Firaxis and Apple are giving users a chance to try the game out before purchasing, giving players of the demo access to 60 turns.

We tried the game out and found that it is indeed the full Civilization VI experience, as promised.

Civilization 6 comes to iPad, full game to cost $60

Otherwise, it feels remarkably familiar to the the PC version and is ported by Aspyr, the same company that ported the previous Civilization games.

The Civilization 6 iPad port will apparently be a near-complete port of the original game, though the upcoming Rise and Fall expansion and apparently other DLC won't be included along with it. Aspyr has said, however, that they plan to implement DLC sometime in the future even if they can't now guarantee a timeline. If you're an existing fan of the franchise with compatible hardware, I know you've already purchased this so I won't waste my breath. This is the base Civilization VI game without any of the expansions for the desktop game. Casual gamers may give pause at paying $60 for the title, but developers (especially those who toil on lower-priced mobile games) are excited at the chance to earn more for their work. This is the full game, too; not a stripped-down mobile version of it.

Civilization has been available on mobile before, but via the Revolution spinoff series, a stripped-down, cartoony take on Civ.

The good news is that the game is entirely free to install. Civilization VI will not include cross-platform play either. Before that, though, Civ VI has made its way to iPad via the App Store for just $30 until January 4th, in which it will increase to a full $60. Also, no expansion packs are available yet, nor are any DLC options.
