App description: Civilization VI for iPad has arrived. Download now and play your first 60 turns for free. Purchase the full game to build an empire that stands the test of time!

Civilization VI requires an iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro.

Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against historys greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time. Play as one of 20 historical leaders including Roosevelt (America) and Victoria (England).

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with historys greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world. Cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

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 civilizations 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 introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.

Just got the info Mail by Aspyr (by news@aspyr.com) and rushed to the App Store.
It requires iOS 11 which is the first bummer. Still got iOS 10 on my iPad mini 4 (which runs great).
60€? Gulp. I'm excited how that turns out.

Is it the full pc game as a native port?

that seems to have come out of nowhere. I played about 5 turns and its a little laggy, but perfectly playable. nothing a few updates won't fix.

iPad Pro 9.7"

Yes, it's real. We're the same company that did KOTOR and Jade Empire on iPad, and did the Mac/Linux versions of Civ VI.

It's a Ł28.99 unlock in the UK version, it's 60 turns for free.. not 60 euros I think
