First Galactic Civilizations III Alpha Gameplay Video!

Galactic Civilizations III Screen 1

Galactic Civilizations III is due to hit Steam Early Access this week, and in anticipation of that we’ve been treated to a first look at the gameplay.

As one of the most highly-rated strategy IPs of all time, the Galactic Civilization series is returning with new features, like multiplayer, enhanced graphics and much more. But fear not, the game will stay true to the essence of its strategy gameplay.

In the gameplay trailer below you’ll hear Stardock’s Adam Biessener talking us through the rise of his own Galactic Civilization. From its humble beginnings of scouting unknown space, and colonizing like a “snooty space plague”, as Adam puts it, to obliterating enemy starships with his warfleets.

He also mentions a few features yet to be included in the game, such as diplomacy, free-form ship designer, and the colony management screen. As the game is still being developed, once the Steam Early Access opens up players will be able to deliver feedback to the developers to help improve the game even further.

Take a look at the gameplay video below!
