Sid Meier's Civilization® VI

Build. Conquer. Inspire.


Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is one of the most massive—and massively complex—strategy games around. An empire-builder where you employ diplomacy, technology, and military might, it’s the sort of epic experience that originated on desktop computers—and that, many assumed, would be folly to run on anything else.

Thankfully, someone forgot to tell that to Aspyr Media, the wizards who brought the game to iPad. “Civilization VI is probably the most complicated application ever published on the App Store,” says Jez Sherlock, Aspyr’s VP of development. We don’t doubt him for a moment.
