Are YOU In the Know? Galactic Civilizations III has an Opt-In Patch Available Now

So what is Galactic Civilizations III?
It’s a 4X–“eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate”–strategy title set in the vast, inky expanse of space. Human-kind has finally mastered star travel, opening up the universe to colonization, exploration, and conquest. Play as a human or choose from a host of alien species and tackle the galaxy. Trade, wage war, negotiate peace, build your own custom fleet, develop technologies, and colonize entire planets.
What kind of interstellar civilization will you build?

The Game

Key features:

Never the same game twice. Play in the ultimate sandbox with a vast and gorgeous world to explore filled to the brim with intelligent alien life with their own beliefs and cultures. Each game will have a unique map, unique worlds and new challenges to face.



Multiple paths to victory. As with the majority of Stardock Entertainment’s games, how you achieve victory is entirely up to your play preferences. Win through military conquest, cultural domination, technological ascension or political alliance.



Story-based campaign. Galactic Civilizations III includes a campaign that brings players up to date on the 20-year story arc behind the rise of humanity in the 23rd century.


Custom ship design. Players can design their own ships with total control over how they function as well as how they look. Any ship you’ve ever imagined can be created or downloaded thanks to the Steam Workshop functionality.


Multiplayer. Challenge your friends for celestial supremacy or fend off hostile forces together.

A Massive Technology Tree. Customize your civilization with a wide variety of skills that will let you be a benign, diplomatic civilization or a fearsome warring one.


Customize at will!
And now, the game is getting even better!
