We’ve all been wondering when Stardock was going to release their big expansion for Galactic Civilizations III, and the wait is finally over! Crusade launches on May 4, 2017 and promises to overhaul many of the mechanics in the game while also adding quite a few features that players have requested since GalCiv3 released in 2015.
May is going to be a busy month in the 4X world!
With Crusade, players can create their own faction with the new Civilization Builder, and the choices you make will determine everything from how you interact with the other races in the game, to which ships you start with on the first turn. Meanwhile, the new Galactic Citizens mechanic allows players to choose how to use their civilization’s leaders. Will you leave them in the capitol to apply a small bonus to the entire empire? Or assign them to a planet for a huge boost with a limited scope?
Crusade is also bringing more new features to the world of Galactic Civilizations III:
- Interactive planetary invasions
- Custom ship fleets
- Improved diplomacy
- An updated graphics engine
There are a lot of possibilities with Crusade, and we are excited to explore them along with you. A review is forthcoming. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on the Explorminate forums.
