Galactic Civilizations III
If you’ve not come across Galactic Civilizations III before, here’s a brief introduction courtesy of developer Stardock Entertainment:
What if one day, humans woke up to find that they weren’t alone in the galaxy? They make their way into space and discover other alien civilizations with their own histories and motivations looking to make a name for themselves. Choose your race – Human, Drengin, Altarian, and so many more – and lead your civilization into a golden age in one of the largest 4X strategy games ever made!Research new technology, design starships, and colonize new worlds as you face threats and conquer challenges from new and mysterious sources. Negotiate trade and treaties, wage wars, spy on your enemies, and promote outstanding citizens. And when you’ve finished that, play again as one of the many included alien civilizations each with its own history, technology tree, ship components, and more.
Looking ahead, Epic has revealed that Relicta will replace Galactic Civilizations III as next week’s Epic Game Store free game. Coined a ‘first-person physics-based puzzle game,’ Relicta has players use gravity and magnetism in creative ways to decrypt the many secrets hidden within a 22nd-century terra-formed moon base known as Chandra Base. Relicta will be available to claim free on the Epic Games Store from January 20th to January 27th.
Once again, for those at the back, Galactic Civilizations III is free right now on the Epic Games Store.
