Aspyr Media has launched Sid Meier’s Civilization VI for iPhone. The game comes with 60 free turns before you need to purchase the full game for $32.99 CAD, which the company says is currently a 60% discount as part of a launch promo.
This universal update for Civilization VI means current iPad owners can play the iPhone version for free. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI includes:
EXPANSIVE EMPIRES: See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.
ACTIVE RESEARCH: Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.
DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY: Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
COMBINED ARMS: Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.
LOCAL MULTIPLAYER: In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS: Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems are designed to introduce new players to the underlying concepts of Civilization so they can easily get started on a path to victory.
The game requires iOS 11 on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro.
Civilization VI on iPad includes the base game only and not expansion content, which requires in-app purchases.
Aspyr Media tells iPhone in Canada via email the 60% off sale ends on October 16, 2018 at 11:59pm PDT. Even at the 60% off launch promo price, $33 seems like a steep price, unless you’re a huge Civilization IV fan.
