Civilization 6 comes to iPad, full game to cost $60

You'll also need a newer, more powerful iPad with only the iPad Pro, iPad 2017 and the iPad Air 2 being supported at this time.

For those of you on the fence, you can download the game now and play your first 60 turns for free. Specifically, the Strategic View is gone on the iPad version. After that, they'll have to pay for the full game. Surprisingly, the will be priced regularly at $59.99 on iPad, but it is now available at a launch discount of $29.99.

Civilization VI for iOS will regularly sell for $60, but to celebrate the launch, Aspyr is offering it for half price.

For those who would like to take the king of 4X strategy on the go, Aspyr Media has announced that as of today Civilization VI will be available for iPad from the Apple App Store. It's the full game, making it the first legit, main series Civ game to be released on mobile.

And it's like.the full, complete version of Civ VI that you get on the PC. For comparison's sake, 2K charged $19.99 at launch for the iOS port of XCOM: Enemy Unknown back in 2013.

The iPad port of Civilization 6 is a landmark decision, as it's the first time that a game of this magnitude has been released on something like an iPad. The port does not support controllers.

Single-finger scrolling works on lists and moving the map. Aspyr's FAQ points out one difference: The iPad version's multiplayer modes work only on a local network "as of this point".

A handful of compromises have been made, of course. Regarding add-on content, Aspyr said, "We hope to support DLC and expansions in the future but can not confirm timing or availability at this time".

The game does not seem to be a cut-down version either, with the entirety of the base game available on mobile, which has been "Rebuilt with touch controls".
