Popular turn-based game Civilization VI, which has previously been available for the iPad, is today expanding to the iPhone. Aspyr Media, the company that ported the game to iOS, is making the iPad version universal, so customers who have already purchased Civilization VI for iPad can play on iPhone at no additional cost.

Civilization VI is a turn-based strategy game that tasks players with building an empire and advancing civilization from the Stone Age to the Information age. Exploring the surroundings, researching new technology, and conquering enemies are core gameplay elements.

To celebrate the launch of Civilization VI, the full game can be unlocked for $23.99, a 60 percent discount off of the regular price of $59.99. Players can also play through the first 60 turns to give the game a try before purchasing.

Civilization VI in particular offers cities that span multiple tiles, active research options through exploring and discovering new cultures, dynamic diplomacy options, and options to use multiple units per tile. There's a local multiplayer mode for cooperating and competing with friends, and for new players, there's a full tutorial system.

The game requires iOS 11 or later on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, iPhone X, or iPhone XS or XS Max. On iPad, it works with the iPad Air 2, the 2017 and later iPad, and any iPad Pro model.

Civilization can be downloaded from the iOS App Store. [Direct Link]

Awesome!!

Bought this on my iPad a while back, but shortly exchanged that for a Surface Pro. Looking forward to checking this out finally.

Do game saves sync via iCloud or any other mechanism? Can you use an iPhone and an iPad interchangeably and resume your game, or are game saves trapped on the device you start on?

Good question. I'd like to know the answer too. If the game syncs, that will be wonderful.

So what they’re saying is this game is supposed to be priced at $60 but get it today for 50 percent off for an iPhone game!?

I think they are saying this is usually priced at 60 dollars for iPad, but now we are discounting it for launch as a universal app that will work on your iPad and your iPhone.

Oh man, I’m so tempted, but CivRev is my favorite Civ game, and I’ve heard the “full version of Civ” is way more complex.

A great game and a great port! Unfortunately, I Civ 4 is still my favorite- and easily my favorite and most played game of all time. Now if that was ported to the iPad- life over.

Sorry for the dumb question, but I’m slow and haven’t paid for an iPhone game in a while, but if I buy this for my iPhone can I download it on my iPad or so I have to buy it again?

Am I missing something, or are there no buttons for saving, loading, or changing the options for a new game?

You’ll need to either “restore purchase” if the option is available, or pretend you’re going to buy it again, and a message box will pop up saying you’ve already paid and it will be downloaded again at no cost.
