“Civilization VI” Leader Pass Now Available on iOS and PC Platforms, Still No Visual Improvements – TouchArcade

Following recent in-game discounts and free DLC giveaways, Aspyr Media has released the Civilization VI (Free) Leader Pass for the iOS version of the game as well as an update adding support for the first pack. If you haven’t followed Civilization VI on mobile, it debuted on iPad for free a while ago. Since then, it has been updated with new DLCs and expansions, including Universal Update and more. The iOS version has always been behind consoles, but with today’s update it’s now on par with PC with DLC. It unfortunately still hasn’t seen any visual or performance updates. When this pack was announced, I was hoping we would see some long overdue visual improvements and frame rate increases for newer devices, but things are the same. The first pack included in the pass is now available. On PC, owners of all previous DLCs get the pass for free, but iOS players have to pay for it.
