Stardock may have gone through most of their life offering crazy Windows add-ons like ObjectDock and Deskscapes; but their game division is still a major focus for them. It's about to release Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade.
Now officially due to release on May 4, 2017, there's plenty going into this turn-based 4X strategy gem to keep it from feeling dated.
With even its Steam page gloating that Galactic Civilizations III boasts the largest space-base strategy game of all time, there's only so much a new expansion can build onto the ambitious space sim already, right? Well, if you're into graphical upgrades, new civilizations and custom ship fleets, you'll find them all soon.
Making a big deal about how the 'story' of Galactic Civilization III is always forged by your own actions and willpower, Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade will feature no new campaign or storymode. It's purely game features here. With a vastly improved diplomacy system being thrown in for good measure, we're to expect a long list of changes once the expansion lands next week.
For now, you can read up on how the first few turns of Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade played out for Stardock's CEO Brad Wardell. Of course, every playthrough is different. You're an individual, after all. But it's a good way to know what's coming in the near future.
