Civilization VI for iPad has arrived. Download now and play your first 60 turns for free. Purchase the full game to build an empire that stands the test of time!

Civilization VI requires an iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro.

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).

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.

Great game but some issues


Just like many others I totally didn’t expect to see this game make its way to the iPad but it is most definitely a welcome surprise. The gameplay has been translated excellently to the iPad and just as you would expect from a Civilization game it has the same addicting qualities that keep you thinking “just one more turn” straight into the late hours of the night.

The issues of the game mainly relate to the performance, unlike many of the people reviewing the game I realise that expecting the visuals to be at the same standard of the PC version is wishful thinking. That being said I have experienced a few crashes into the later stages of the game as well as the iPad (9.7 inch model) being unable to keep the charge at 100% when attached to the mains due to the power consumption being greater than the power supplied. With regards to pricing I believe that for a AAA title such as this, a higher price tag is totally justified however at the same time I feel that £60 is too steep and that the current sale price is more in line with what I’d expect a AAA title to cost on this platform.

All in all I’m very impressed with the quality of the port to the iPad, now if you could also port over Civilization 5 with all its DLC, I (and many others) would buy it in a heartbeat.

Problems with iPad Pro

LEGO Man 23

Can’t believe such a major game has finally been brought to the iPad, and as far as I can see, it should work perfectly on the iPad Air 2. However, I find it quite ridiculous that the game hasn’t been optimised for the larger screens of the iPad Pro models (10.5” and 12.5”) from the outset of release, I can’t really get my head around this, it’s almost as if the developers forgot that they needed to modify the visuals for the larger, most recent and powerful iPads. The blurry visuals can be quite uncomfortable to look at for a while, and the game interface is oversized, but I really hope that an update is released to solve this problem as soon as possible. Following on from this, in my opinion, the game, despite being a full 'computer grade' game, the £28 price tag is rather heavy for an iPad app and I’m sure is the main factor that will put people off buying it. I’m sure £15 or so would suffice and would attract more people to buy it. Personally, I do plan to pay the £28 because I can’t see the developers reducing the price, and it is amazing that such a great game has been brought to the iPad. To conclude, please please please developers optimise the visuals ASAP!! You wonder why you’re getting some bad initial reviews...

High price justifies a lower score


I have been playing civilisation for about ten years now and count myself as a loyal fan. While the fact the game is able to run very well on my 2018 iPad is impressive the cost is far too high. I bought the full version of the game on my laptop which included all the extra civilisations and scenarios for £30 on PC and am confused as to how the £50 iOS version does not come with all the extra civilisations included. While I did buy the game on iOS at the offer price of £30 I feel paying the full £50 should be rewarded with the addition of all civilisations and scenarios without having to pay £4.99 EACH! Also, the price of the game would be made far better value if future updates included the expansion packs are provided for free or at a very discounted price as it is such expansion packs which complete each rendition of civilisation. Otherwise the game runs very well, it is just a shame owners of PC versions of the game are forced to buy the game again and at a far more expensive cost in order to play it on the go. Here’s to hopping that future expansions, if they do become available, are more reasonably priced.
