Aspyr Media has ported Civilization VI to the iPad

Aspyr Media has ported Civilization VI to the iPad”

But the requirements are hefty: Civilization VI requires iOS 11 on an iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro.

That being said, the first 60 turns of the first game a player creates are free-to-play, so players can decide whether or not they want to make such a large investment for a mobile game.

The new game Civilization 6 was launched on iPad, right before the Christmas holidays. In February 2017, they have launched a Linux version of the game.

Civilization VI now costs $29.99 on the iOS App Store as part of a launch discount, with it slated to go up to its regular price of $59.99 on January 4. It's the real deal, it's the full version that you can also get on your PC.

PM arrives in Istanbul to attend OIC Summit
Egypt and the United Arab Emirates will send foreign ministers, while Saudi Arabia had yet to say how it would participate. The summit will be preceded by the Council of Foreign Ministers Meeting which will be attended by Khawaja Muhammad Asif.

With the series having endured a half-assed history on mobile devices, Aspyr (long-time porters of Firaxis' series to Apple computers) has surprisingly dropped Civilization VI on the App Store for the latest models of iPads.

The pricing is essentially unprecedented, even for a mobile port of a full PC/console game. Civilization VI of course is a turn-base strategy game in which players compete alongside AI opponents to grow a civilization from tribe to world domination. Civilization VI is now available as an iPad exclusive, and you can try it for free. Same specifics like works, maps, leaders and technology.

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. Aspyr's FAQ points out one difference: The iPad version's multiplayer modes work only on a local network "as of this point".

The game was ported by Aspyr Media, a company that has been doing Mac game ports for two decades and which had previously ported BioWare's Jade Empire and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic to iOS. Plus, there are no DLC packs available.
