Epic Games has been going strong in recent days by offering Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition. From January 21 to 28, the free game will be a little less popular, but not necessarily less interesting. This is the 4X space strategy game Galactic Civilizations III.
Not familiar with the genre or the title from Stardock Entertainment? Here is how it is described on the store.
What if humans one day wake up to find that they are not alone in the galaxy? They would go to space to learn about other extraterrestrial civilizations, their history and their motivations in order to make a name for themselves. Choose your race (Human, Drengian, Altar and many more) and lead your civilization to a golden age in one of the greatest 4X strategy games ever!
Research new technologies, design ships, and colonize new worlds as you face various threats and overcome challenges from mysterious sources. Negotiate contracts and treaties, go to war, spy on your enemies, and offer promotions to your best citizens. With all of this accomplished, replay with one of the game’s many alien civilizations and discover new stories, new tech trees, new ship components, and more.Galactic Civilizations III now includes the Crusade and Retribution expansions, as well that the additional Mega Events content for you to enjoy the game even more! Join the ranks of galactic leaders today and answer this question: How are you going to rule your galaxy?
Each new game gives you a range of configuration options: choose the size of your map, the amount of planets and resources, the frequency of events and much more to enjoy a unique experience every time. Galactic Civilizations III also gets rid of the linear victory conditions by giving you many objectives to follow in order to win: military conquest, cultural domination, technological rise or political alliances. Add to it all a powerful and precise custom ship designer, and you’ve got an immersive and thrilling experience as you decide how to rule your galaxy.
This week, the mood will change with Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition: the retro-aesthetic metroidvania will be free starting next Thursday.
