From Stardock’s Press Release:

Galactic Civilizations III Gets Big Diplomacy Update, New Types of Planets in this Week’s 1.5 Update and DLC Release!

Players can now explore additional options for diplomacy, try out the new Coercion ability, and enjoy an improved multiplayer experience.

Plymouth, MI – December 9, 2015 – Stardock announced the availability of the Galactic Civilizations III v1.5 update which adds new diplomatic opportunities and many other new features to the game, and a new DLC, “Precursor Worlds”, which adds new Precursor Planets, anomalies, and colony events.

In v1.5, players will now be able to interact with their friends and foes through new and different dialogues and choices. Players can order other races out of their territory, proclaim their unwavering friendship, or demand tribute, resulting in either strengthening or damaging relations.

This update also adds a new “Coercion” ability, a new building that will provide a Planetary Wheel improvement for that world, and enhancements to the multiplayer experience, including being able to invite friends to play directly through Steam.

The new DLC, “Precursor Worlds”, introduces new and dangerous anomalies for the player to discover and explore. They will also have to contend with new colony events as they explore lost and ancient Precursor worlds throughout the galaxy.

The “Precursor Worlds” DLC is available for $4.99 directly through Stardock or Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/app/420030.

Some extra images – and a bit of role-playing – from Brad Wardell, the CEO of Stardock:

A new racial trait called coercive allows players who want to boss every planet around directly to do so.  However, there’s a new mechanic: coercion.  Not every scientist is good at factory work and not every factory worker makes a good scientist. The further you push people to work outside their area, the more lost productivity there is.

This is the Precursor worlds DLC.  There are now unique worlds that give you unique abilities if you own them.

The end of the cheese. Switching to a different type of ship will now cost quite a bit more than before.

  1. Gonna wait until it’s feature complete to get it in a GOTY/Bundle Sale with all DLC. I don’t like this slow milking process of Base game + DLC every other month…

    • They have plans for at least 3 years of dlc and expansions so better be pacient.

      Anyway, they sold the game with all the dlc for life for something like 80€
