In Galactic Civilizations III, you start with a single world and expand across the galaxy through diplomacy, trade, cultural hegemony or military conquest in this singleplayer or multiplayer 4X turn-based strategy game.
While humans and aliens compete against each other for domination of the galaxy, you will try to expand your influence, research technological innovations, form alliances through diplomacy, treaties, and trade, and gain domination through invasion and conquest.
Never play the same game twice: Apart from the countless choices unique to your own individual gaming strategy, the game’s setting offers you a playing field full of customizable details. The new 64-bit, multi-core engine increases the number of possible opponents from 16 to 128 and provides you with maps of enormous scope. The custom ship editor also allows you total control over function and appearance of your starships.
How will you rule your Galactic Civilization?

The largest strategy sandbox ever awaits in Galactic Civilizations III from Stardock. How will you rule your galaxy?
Developed and published by Stardock: http://www.stardock.com/
Galactic Civilizations casts the player as the all-powerful leader of a spacefaring civilization that must explore, expand and colonize new worlds across the galaxy. Dominating rival alien species through technological, economic, political and military prowess tests players’ cultural, ideological, and diplomatic skills as they pursue victory via peaceful or belligerent means.
Galactic Civilizations III gives players far more detail in the textures, models, and overall look of everything from the planets they colonize to the fleets they command. New interstellar terrain elements on the hex-based map like black holes and mysterious 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 fresh opportunities to explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate.
Explore enormous galaxies full of hostile aliens, possible allies, and untold riches. Conquer the stars with massive fleets of spaceships you designed from the ground up. Forge a shining empire that spreads across the entire sky, and carve your name across the face of future history before anyone else by becoming a Galactic Civilizations III founder today.
