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.
