The race for the Galaxy has begun… almost
Montreal, Quebec. March 3, 2003 – Publisher Strategy First and developer Stardock announced today that their highly anticipated space strategy game, Galactic Civilizations, has gone Gold!
“With Galactic Civilizations our goal has been to create an epic strategy game where players can play over and over again with each game being a different experience,” said Brad Wardell, Project Lead on Galactic Civilizations at Stardock. “We feel that the final version has achieved this goal and look forward to players giving it a try.”
“Galactic Civilizations is one of Strategy First’s most eagerly awaited titles of this year,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. “The previews and hype on this game have been incredible and we can’t wait to ship it to stores so the fans will get a chance to see what they’ve been waiting for.”
The Fate of the Galaxy is in Your Hands
The year is 2178 and the galaxy is evolving at an alarming pace. Years ago, human scientists introduced a new technology, the “Hyper-drive”, which vastly improved interstellar travel, but instead of forging closer bonds throughout the galaxy, communication between civilizations has ground to a halt. Colonization and a battle for supremacy have become the primary goals but only one race can dominate… and survive.
