Sid Meier’s Civilization VI comes to the iPhone

After being ported to the iPad earlier this year, the latest instalment of Sid Meier’s venerable Civilization series, Civilization VI, is now available on the iPhone as well, and best of all it’s essentially the full console and PC experience, squeezed onto the iPhone, although not all of the expansion content is available as of yet. The new iPhone version is simply a universal app expansion of the iPad version, so anybody who already purchased the iPad version can play on the iPhone for free, while other users will be able to download what is essentially a trial version that allows for up to 60 turns before requiring an in-app purchase to continue.

While the full price of the iOS version of the game is $60 — a price that Aspyr undoubtedly considers justifiable considering the full game experience — there’s an introductory deal offering the full game for $24 until October 16, 2018. Not surprisingly, the game requires an iPhone 7 or later model, or an iPad Air 2, fifth-generation iPad, or any iPad Pro, running iOS 11 or later.
