Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm is now available as an in-app purchase for the iOS app. Gathering Storm brings new features to the game, most notably climate change. It also adds seven World Wonders, eight new civilizations, nine new leaders, and new units, districts, buildings, and governments. The climate change will probably prove to be the most interesting. A new Power system can improve your late-game buildings. Resources like coal, uranium, and oil can be burned for fuel but they have a negative impact on global CO2 levels. But there are green alternatives like geothermal energy, wind farms, and solar farms.
In Polygon‘s review of Civilization 6: Gathering Storm, it sounds like the expansion pack won’t be coming to iOS. I find this incredibly sad because I love the game and I was looking forward to Gathering Storm. The iPad version also doesn’t include the Rise and Fall update which came out last year.
So I’m going to just say that if you’re looking for a better, more advanced, more complicated Civ 6, then Gathering Storm is just fine. But if you’re looking for value, if you don’t want to feel like you’re being gouged and punished for being a fan, I’m inclined to suggest you wait for a price cut.
