“For those who love strategy games, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is a die-hard, must-play classic that until now,  wasn’t an option for Android users,” says Elizabeth Howard, vice president of publishing at Aspyr. “That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that this epic world is now available for Android gamers to enjoy for the first time ever.” 


About Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game where you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. The latest entry in the franchise, Civilization VI, offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map; your actions help boost technology and civics research; and competing leaders pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race and achieve victory.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is now available on Google Play. The game is free to try, enabling gamers to play their first 60 turns for free. After that, they can opt to purchase the full game for $19.99 USD.


Also available for in-app purchase are game expansions, including Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Rise and Fall ($29.9 USD) and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Gathering Storm ($39.99 USD). Civilization and Scenario packs (ranging from $4.99 to $8.99), are available for in-app purchase as well.
