Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Aspyr Media is celebrating the holidays with a generous free giveaway: no fewer than six Civ and Scenario DLC packs for the mobile version of Sid Meier’s Civilization 6.

The only catch is that you’ll need to download them as they become available throughout the next two weeks, with a new DLC going free every three days. Here’s the schedule of free DLC:

  • Dec. 18-20: Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack (Normally $4.99)
  • Dec. 20-22: Vikings Scenario (Normally $4.99)
  • Dec. 22-24: Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack (Normally $4.99)
  • Dec. 24-26: Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack (Normally $8.99)
  • Dec. 26-28: Nubia Civilization & Scenario Pack (Normally $4.99)
  • Dec. 28-Jan. 1, 2020: Khmer and Indonesia Civilization & Scenario Pack (Normally $8.99)

In addition to the smaller DLC packs, the two larger expansion packs, Rise and Fall ($29.99) and Gathering Storm ($39.99), are also available as in-app purchases.

Civilization 6 originally launched on PC in 2016, with the mobile version arriving in 2017. It’s since come to consoles, including Switch, and enjoyed several DLC releases. Rise and Fall added new golden and dark ages, while Gathering Storm introduced climate change and natural disasters.

The mobile version is available for iOS only (iPad Air or better or iPhone 7 or better). It’s free-to-download but limited to a 60-turn skirmish with pre-set Civs. The full game can be unlocked for $19.99.

Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 is rated 12+ on the App Store.

Civ Gets Smaller as Civilization VI Launches on iPhone

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Late last year 2K, Firaxis, and Aspyr Media launched Sid Meier’s Civilization VI on the iPad. Today Civ gets even more mobile as it officially launches on iPhone. It’s currently available at a special promo price of $23.99 (60% off). The sale ends October 16.

Civilization VI is a universal app, which means anyone who purchased it for iPad can download it to their iPhone for free (and vice-versa). The app is available for free with a 60-turn limit, with the in-app purchase to unlock the full game. The 60-turn demo only allows you to play as a single civ, and doesn’t feature more maps or game saving.

The mobile version of Civ 6 is the exact same as the PC game (hence the full game price) with a more mobile-friendly interface. It features the classic turn-based, empire-building, eon-spanning gameplay that makes it one of the most popular strategy game series of all time. Engage in tactical warfare on the hex grid world, plan out multiple districts in expanding cities, research centuries of technology and improvements, adopt social policies, and engage in diplomacy with world leaders.

Civ 6 on iOS features local multiplayer only. Quick scenarios are designed to be played and completed in a single session.

Civilization VI requires iOS 11.4.1 on iPhone 7 and above. The iPad version requires at least an iPad Air 2 or iPad Pro. The mobile version includes only the base PC game, though DLC packs have begun appearing on the app store as add-ons. The large expansion that released last year, Rise and Fall, has not yet been ported to mobile yet.

Civilization VI is available now on iPad and iPhone. The mobile version is developed by Aspyr Media. The 60% off sale runs until October 16. Civ 6 is rated E10+.
