October 4th, 2018 -- Aspyr Media has done it again! Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, the award-winning strategy game, is available today on iPhone. All players are invited to try the game for free for the first 60-turns.

Civilization VI is a universal app, so all current iPad owners will be able to enjoy the iPhone version for free! To celebrate the release on iPhone, the Civilization VI full game unlock is currently 60% off so new players can get their hands on it for $23.99.**

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier and published by 2K Games, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you build an empire to stand the test of time by leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Explore a new land, research technology, conquer your enemies, and go head-to-head with history’s most renowned leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI includes:

EXPANSIVE EMPIRES: 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.

ACTIVE RESEARCH: 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.

DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY: 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.

COMBINED ARMS: 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.

LOCAL MULTIPLAYER: 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.

A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS: Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems are designed to introduce new players to the underlying concepts of Civilization so they can easily get started on a path to victory.

  • Civilization VI requires 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. Please note, Civilization VI on iPad includes the base game only, and does not include expansion content.

** Civilization VI is on sale for 60 percent off and is regularly priced at $59.99. This sale will end on October 16, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Prices and availability may vary by territory. Sale only available on the App Store.
