The action takes place several years after those presented in Galactic Civilization II’s expansion entitled Twilight of the Arnor. Thanks to this, the developers could introduce completely new races, factions, and technologies. As for the gameplay mechanics, it is still an expansive turn-based space strategy game that allows us to forge a galactic empire from the bottom up. Depending on our playstyle, this can be done by aggressive conquest or diplomacy and trade. The most important change in comparison with the game’s predecessors is dividing maps into hexes which lets us apply completely different strategies. The gameplay’s tempo Is also influenced by black holes and mysterious relicts that are scattered around the map. The spaceship design system was completely revamped. The players now can make all decisions connected to constructing fleets. The same goes for managing resources and diplomacy.
