Hey iOS players!
As you may have heard, the iOS version of Civilization VI will be receiving the New Frontier Pass update on August 24th. In addition to the New Frontier Pass, players will now be able to access their cloud saves from the Desktop versions of Civilization VI.
However, any iOS cloud saves made prior to the update will not be accessible. Players will need to backup their saves locally in order to access them once the game has been updated.
This will affect all iOS players, regardless of whether you purchase the New Frontier Pass or not.
To save your cloud games locally:
- Load your cloud save
- Make sure to checkmark "Multiplatform Cloud" above your list of saves to see your cloud game. It may take few seconds for the list to load.
- Once your save has loaded, select “Save Game” from the pause menu
- You can open the pause menu using the button with three lines at the top right of the screen.
- In the save menu, make sure you have the Multi-platform Cloud checkbox unchecked.
- Then select Save
This will save the game to your device instead of the cloud. After the update, you can save the game with the “Multi-Platform Cloud” checkbox checked again, and you’ll be good to go!
