The sequel to Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, Galactic Civilizations 3 is going to be a 64-bit PC exclusive, being make by Stardock. Kind if like a Civilization game set in space, Galactic Civilizations are huge, turn-based strategy games. This new one promises to be a huge leap forward, not only in the visual department, but also in the gameplay department as well. With new multiplayer, diplomacy, and many different terrain changes, this is looking to be one very large game.
By going 64-bit only, Stardock states “We want Galactic Civilizations III, and future expansions, to be able to handle extremely large galaxies with a very high resolution graphics and large data sets for the computer AI to make use of. It allows us to design the best game possible without being constrained by the limitations of older hardware.”
