Civilization 6 on iOS is now universal, and 60% off!04 Oct 2018 9
“Aspyr, when will you be giving us Civilization 6 on our iPhone?”, said everyone, ever. Well, now the developers have followed through and you’ll be pleased to know that the iOS version of Civ 6 is finally iPhone compatible, making it a ‘universal’ game.
To recap, this means that if you already own Civ 6 on your iPad, you’ll be able to download it on your iPhone completely free of charge.
If you never picked it up (particularly if you don’t own an iPad), then Aspyr also want to help you out. As you may remember, Civ 6 is actually “free”, in the sense that you can download the game at no cost and play out the first 60 turns of a game.
You then need to purchase an IAP to unlock the full experience and be able to use the DLC packs that have been released so far. Normally this retails for $59.99 but until October 16th, 2018, you can purchase that unlock at a 60% discount – so $23.99 USD.
This is the biggest discount on that IAP to date – although there have been regular 50% discounts since the game’s launch last year. If you’re playing chicken and waiting for a bigger discount, I doubt it’ll get much cheaper while Civ 6 is still in active development.
If you’ve already played the free trial and are still unsure, you can read Nick’s review to find out more. He’ll also be dropping on thoughts on the iPhone version specifically in tomorrow’s Weekender update, so keep an eye out for that as well.
Remember, Civilization VI on iOS has the following minimum spec requirements: iOS 11 on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro.
