** 2016 Strategy Game of the Year – The Game Awards**

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 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.

Civilization VI requires an iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro. Please note, Civilization VI on iPad includes the base game only, and does not include additional downloadable or expansion content.

If you know Civ games you know this

Bo Bilstrup

This is the full game of civilization 6 as you would play it on Mac or pc (without the expansions). I bought it for the $30 price (before Jan 2018) and if you are thinking it sounds like a steep price for an iPad game, just remember you’re getting a full game that’s also at least at time of release $60. I’ve always loved the civ games as to me it’s one of those games you can relax really relax with. But I don’t like playing games on my Mac and always thought games like this would be perfect on an iPad with touch screen and voila they did it and it works wonderfully with touch gestures. Love I can chill on the couch with my iPad with this game. Graphics are great, haven’t played on Mac but from what I hear it looks liked if you put it on low setting. It has only crashed on me twice (it auto saves every turn) so no lost game time. I will say I’m playing on iPad Pro and it runs perfect. I really hope this will be the forefront for more big games to start develop on iPad, games like Cities Skylines would be perfect too.

Bottom line I’m impressed and not regretting coughing up $30 for this games as I’ve already put in countless of hours and many more to come.

Flawless Port

Positronic Matrix

An absolutely flawless port. Its performance on my iPad Pro is identical to my iMac — fast on games if they are early/small and a bit slower on games if they are large. After hundreds of hours of play, I have had but a single crash, however thanks to iOS my progress was saved and I was able to resume immediately.

I have always loved Civilization, however my responsibilities at the current stage of my life make it impossible for me to sit away at my computer for the 36-48 hours it takes for a solid game. Thanks to this port, I have played Civilization more in the last month than I have in the last two years. The iPad is Civilization’s natural platform, allowing one to be present in a room with others, pause as necessary, and move about as the day evolves. Another bonus is that when I’m working out on my stationary bicycle, the exercise time flies by while I’m playing.

This port is a dream come true for me.

Full Civilization VI on my iPad Pro 2nd Gen😀


I’m so happy this is a full game instead of some watered down freemium experience. I have always wanted many more full games on the iPad Pro 2nd Gen and iPhone 7 Plus. I remember a few years ago when BioShock from 2K was released and I had so much fun with it until it was rendered unusable by the updates of iOS. I miss playing BioShock on my iPhone and iPad. I hope this is the sign of things to come because I’ve never been a fan of the freemium watered down games. Some freemium experiences pushed me away from iOS gaming and not towards it, and I bought a Nintendo Switch. The iOS devices are now powerful enough for many awesome full game experiences and you can even attach controllers like the one I have for my iPad Pro. Please 2K update BioShock to work again because I really miss it on the go.
