    Hey Civfanatics! Aspyr Media here to help answer any and all questions you might have about the iPad version of Civilization VI.

    First off, here's the info from our FAQ posted on our support page:

    Technical Requirements

    Q: Which iPads does this work on?

    A: Civilization VI requires iOS 11.1.2 on an iPad Air 2, iPad 2017, or any iPad Pro.

    Q: How do the touch controls differ from PC?

    A: The touch controls are very intuitive:

    • Tapping units selects them. Dragging a unit to a tile will move and attack.
    • Press and hold to view tooltips.
    • Pinch to zoom the map.
    • Single-finger scrolling works on lists and moving the map.
    • Three-finger tapping can be used to close menus.
    Q: Is Civilization VI coming to Android or iPhone?

    A: As of today, Civilization VI is only available on iPad. However, we are continuing to evaluate opportunities to eventually bring Civilization VI to other platforms.

    Q: How long does the battery last?

    A: In our tests, more than three hours of gameplay on a full charge.

    Q: Are controllers supported?

    A: No.

    Q: What languages are supported at release?

    A: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. Brazilian-Portuguese features text-only support.

    Gameplay

    Q: Does Civilization VI on iPad have multiplayer?

    A: Yes. It is important to note that as of this point, multiplayer is LAN only.

    Q: What content is included with Civilization VI on iPad?

    A: Civilization VI on iPad includes the original base game. It does not include DLC or the Rise and Fall expansion.

    Q: What about DLC or the new Rise and Fall expansion?

    A: We hope to support DLC and expansions in the future but cannot confirm timing or availability at this time.

    Q: Can I play my friend who is on PC/ Mac while on my iPad?

    A: Not at this time.
    Alright, now that those are all laid out for you, we'd like to know what other feedback or questions you might have. Already have the game and are running into performance issues on a supported iPad model? Open a support ticket with all the details here: https://support.aspyr.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    I'm waiting to buy this until it can cross-platform multiplayer against a PC.

    It doesn't include ANY of the DLC civs? That's unfortunate.

    Would buy for Android. Will probably not buy an Ipad.

    That might be a long ways out since Steam is used for MP :/

    No, the current iOS version is the equivalent to the Spring 2017 patch.

    iPad Air 2 with the up to date operating system does work but it will freeze a lot. No one seems to know the reason so might have to upgrade to new iPad.
