When Sid Meier’s Civilization VI (Free) landed on the iPad back in December, it was a big deal for a couple of reasons. First of all, it was a full port of the PC original which had just launched about a year prior and it made its way to iPad with very few concessions. Full ports of some older hefty console and PC games had made their way to iOS before, like the incredibly impressive GRID Autosport ($9.99) which originally launched on console and PC in 2014, but Civilization VI was even newer than that and still made its way to the iPad which was a really impressive feat. The second big point about its iPad release was the pricing. Original developer Firaxis Games and Aspyr Media, who ported the game to iPad, felt that a full-blown title such as that should warrant a similar price to other platforms. It’s a free to try model with a premium unlock IAP normally priced at $59.99 but offered at a launch discount of $29.99 for its first two weeks on the App Store.
Well, if you were interested in Sid Meier’s Civilization VI when it released but weren’t able to pull the trigger in time for the launch sale, you now have another chance as the full game IAP is currently on sale for 50% off again until March 1st. This is likely to celebrate the massive new Rise and Fall expansion that launched for the PC version of Civilization VI today. That expansion is not yet available for the Mac and Linux versions of the game but Aspyr Media is hard at work on making that happen. However, no word on if it will make its way to the iPad version or not. At any rate, the non-expanded Civilization VI is absolutely stuffed with content as is, so if you missed out on the sale price before be sure to read our full review for some more info and consider picking up during this latest sale before the price goes back up on March 1st.
