Only Apple TV requires that the game be played while online.
The other platforms (iPhone, iPad, computers, and consoles) can all play the game either online or offline; however, please note the following:
- The game is distributed via the internet, so you will need to be online when installing the game and installing updates.
- For all consoles, you must set the console as your "Primary" (for PlayStation 4/5 and Switch) or "Home" (for Xbox One) console to be able to play a digitally purchased game fully offline. If that's not the case, the console will need to be online to verify the license for the game. We believe it only checks the license every few hours or so, but it is an annoying aspect of buying games digitally on consoles.
- While playing offline, you will not have access to online services such as cloud saving, your platform's Achievement/Trophy system, etc.
