Popular turn-based strategy game Civilization VI made its way to the iPad today thanks to Aspyr Media. The sixth game in the Civilization series, Civilization VI was originally released on Mac and PC in October of 2016.
As with all Civilization games, the aim is to lead a newly-established civilization to glory over many hundreds of years to ultimately become a world power.
Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history's greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time. Play as one of 20 historical leaders including Roosevelt (America) and Victoria (England).
Cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.
Civilization VI is compatible with the iPad Air 2, the fifth-generation iPad, and all iPad Pro models. Aspyr has made Civilization VI free to download and has included a sort of in-game trial period.
The first 60 turns of the game can be played for free, but after that, players must purchase the full game for $60, which is likely to be a surprise to many who have come to expect iOS games to cost less than their PC counterparts.
Aspyr is, however, offering a limited time discount, dropping the price from $60 to $30 through January 4. Civilization VI can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]
