Just released today I believe. 60 turns free and then you can buy it if desired. Not sure on price. Expansion content not included. No word on whether it may come in future that I saw.

In other Aspyr news, I just happened to notice Jade Empire on iOS is only 99 cents! Insta-buy! No idea how long that offer will last.

Um, wut?

I don't really need the Collector's Edition with the Civ VI iPad case, Gandhi figurine, cloth map of the world, Prima Strategy Guide, etc. Just the regular $9.99 version would be great. I think that is what Feral released Rome Total War for if I recall correctly which is certainly an impressive technical accomplishment itself not to mention a great game.

Yeah... I mean, I'm all for premium and more or less against the freemium model currently so popular with iOS games, but I do think Feral's approach to pricing their iOS ports might be a bit closer to what customers are prepared to pay for an iOS game nowadays.

Oh and Aspyr mentioned on Twitter and Facebook that KOTOR 2 won't come to iOS.

Total War was a much older game (though still very excellent). Still, I don't see people paying 60 dollars for an iPad game. There's some loss of value because there's so much OS churn games frequently fall out of compatibility. It is worth the 30 dollar price to never sleep again.

Civilization VI is sadly only available in English and the In-App purchase won’t be available for family sharing either...

Holy heck, it's mod-able.

$30/$60 is a lot for the ipad version, but clearly they are gambling that this is like a parallel platform, competing directly with the desktop versions. If so, the price may drop when desktop version's price eventually does. (Note the desktop version is currently $30 too, thanks to the Steam sale.)

I'm tempted.

I think the DLC is probably going to follow here and the price of some future bundle will represent a good value. I can wait on that with so much else to play but it is very exciting to see games like Rome Total War, GRID and now this come to iOS. Feral and Aspyr strike again! :)

I hope and expect that the upcoming Neverwinter Nights EE will come to iOS too which is another one I'd enjoy on iPad.

I don't mind DLC and certainly not good expansions but I really appreciate excellent games coming to iOS without microtransactions which for me are a huge turn off. In fact, seeing no microtransactions on something good is a huge turn on and gets me all happy inside! Sorry, maybe that's TMI... :)

Still playing this around the house. Plays exceptionally well by fingers or by stylus. I have a really nice pen/stylus that I got on amazon. Convenient for precision poking in Civ VI

I stopped gaming on my iOS devices a while back (Legion for iPad was AWESOME; shame support got dropped). This is tempting me though.

Desktop version is on sale for $18 on Steam (their usual Summer Sale.)
This may be why the iOS version is also on sale, for $24.

Back when I got my iPad, I was screaming for a proper Civilization game. Now they've actually released one, and I haven't even had time to try it out because kids.

I can't even download it to my measly 32GB iPad, because... Kids games! >_<

^ Beta.

:wink:

The only games on my iPad are my grognard games. Civ6 on the iPad is wonderful.

Nightly, I lie in bed next to my woman and play Civ6 on my iPad. Then after ransacking an obstinate civilization, I put my iPad away and take my prize. :devil:

What is the verdict about Civ6 on the iPad? I played the trial and loved it! But I can see from App Store reviews that it gets quite unstable late game on iOS, is that correct?

I haven&rsquo;t played it since back when it first came out. But I took a couple games to the end and didn&rsquo;t have any instability at the time. Thought it was a fantastic port - touch controls are not quite as good as mouse, but the portability on iPad is amazing.

It's very enjoyable. I think I got it half price, and although I only completed a few games, you know how long those games can take.

I found late game to get sluggish to load, even on smallish maps. And it tended to unload itself from memory if I switched to almost any other task on the iPad (1st gen Pro). So that meant I'd switch to it and see the initial loading screens again, a lot more often than I wanted.

I haven't played for about 2 years, and there have been many patches both to the game and iOS, so your experience will almost certainly be different. Could be better, could be worse. :-) But overall, thumbs up.
