Galactic Civilizations III keeps getting better. Additional content has been made available since the game's release. All expansions and other downloadable content (DLC) require Galactic Civilizations III (sold separately) to play.
What started as a crusade has become a war of retribution.
Across the galaxy, ancient alien artifacts are being discovered, giving civilizations powerful new capabilities. Meanwhile, as civilizations try to carefully balance building an economy, funding an ever growing war machine, and engaging in diplomacy, the humans of Sol III have invented a game-changing new technology - Hypergates - which, when connected, allow for rapid transit across the galaxy.
With two new major civilizations and the concluding campaign to the Galactic Civilizations III backstory that serves this massive space 4X sandbox game, Retribution asks the question: How will you rule your galaxy?
Assemble your cabinet of advisors, choose a form of government, and earn the trust and faith of your people. Politics are here on a galactic scale in Galactic Civilizations III: Intrigue!
One enormous galaxy to explore. Thousands of planets ripe for settling. Hundreds of colonies looking for leadership: you.
