Galactic Civilizations III announced
Space strategy series making a comeback
Stardock has announced the third installment of its PC strategy game series with Galactic Civilizations III.
Coming exclusively to 64-bit PCs, Galactic Civilizations III features familiar core gameplay while adding new aspects including multiplayer, political intrigue, improved visuals and more.
New interstellar terrain elements on the hex-based map like black holes and Precursor relics change the way players explore the galaxy. A completely overhauled ship builder puts nearly every element of starship design in players’ hands, while the new resource system creates opportunities to explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate.
The $39.99 Founder’s Edition includes beta access, $10 off the regular price, and a special forum badge. The $99.99 Founder’s Elite Edition gives players all future DLC and expansions for free as they come out, alpha access, their name in the game’s credits, and the right to name a star to appear in-game.
