Galactic Civilizations 3 gets a release date

Stardock gets ready to launch its 4X strategy title next month.

Already up on Steam Early Access, Galactic Civilizations 3 is a 64-bit title that the team says is its “largest and most diverse strategy sandbox to date.” Hexes are in instead of squares, there’s multiplayer, and Steam Workshop support should allow for extensive modding. Not only that, but Stardock have plans for a lot of DLC, which they say will come thick and fast for the first couple of months. Overall, it sounds like there’s going to be plenty to keep universe-conquering 4X strategy fans happy for quite some time.

Early Access beta versions are still being released with the most recent – released yesterday – offering performance improvements, AI improvements, balance changes and more. The game is still available as an Early Access title priced at £29.99, so if you’re desperate for more Galactic Civilizations action then you can jump in now before it releases.

Galactic Civilizations 3 releases on 14 May on Steam.
