Civilization VI is available now on iPad for free (for 50 turns)

"You have to think on your feet in Civilization VI in ways you've never had to before", read TIME's Civilization VI review previous year.

Otherwise, it feels remarkably familiar to the the PC version and is ported by Aspyr, the same company that ported the previous Civilization games. This is the base Civilization VI game without any of the expansions for the desktop game. Before that, though, Civ VI has made its way to iPad via the App Store for just $30 until January 4th, in which it will increase to a full $60. Players can try the game out on iPad for free, with the first 60 turns available without paying for the full version. The iPad version represents the first time a mainline Civilization title has been available on mobile devices.

The Firaxis developed turn-based strategy title, Civilization VI, arrived on PC over a year ago, and now, the award-winning game has quietly released on the iPad. That's not the case with the latest high-profile iPad game release. It's free to download and play, but it's not a free game. Setting the price for the iPad version to the same as it sells for on Steam for PC is a bold move, and unprecedented for a mobile port.

- Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success.

Civilization VI is the first in the Civilization series to be released for the iPad. Aspyr Media says it hopes to eventually support DLC and expansions on the iPad, but did not have any other details to share. And then, if you want to buy it, it costs $60. The game itself will only run on iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, and the iPad Pros at this time. Regarding add-on content, Aspyr said, "We hope to support DLC and expansions in the future but can not confirm timing or availability at this time".

Local multiplayer is available but as to whether online and cross-platform multiplayer will be supported, that's as yet unknown.
