Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade is the future of Galactic Civilizations but we haven't forgotten about the hundreds of thousands of players who play the base game. We are busy working on version 2.3 which should be coming out soon as part of a major update to both the base game and Crusade. This article details some of the highlighted areas we're focusing on.

With the Steam Summer sale coming up, we wanted to make sure that the base game of GalCiv III gets a nice refresh. It's proving difficult because while GalCiv III: Crusade is sold as an "expansion pack" to GalCiv III, under the covers it's more like a sequel.
Managing Designer, Callum McCole of the Generals Gentlemen, is here in Plymouth all the way from Perth Australia where we're working out the roadmap for Ashes of the Singularity.
Version 2.3 just arrived which includes Juggernauts and Episode 3 (yes, all for free). It's an exciting time so let's talk about what's happening...
Dominate the battlefield in v2.3 of Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation! With two brand new tier 5 Juggernaut warships (Leonidas and Nest of the Queen), a fully voiced "Genesis" campaign, and updates for the existing campaign, the game is better than ever before.

We are working on version 2.3 for Crusade and the base game simultaneously. We don't have a final date but I expect you will start seeing opt-ins very soon.
I want to make you guys aware of some important changes happening on Steam that will affect you.
“Jupiter’s Forge expands on Offworld Trading Company, taking you to Jupiter’s moon, Io. With this area comes two new factions, a range of new buildings and a whole new way in how to manage resources. Io is a try planet, there is no water to pump and the game will challenge you in a way that makes it feel fresh.” -Chris Wray, wccftech

The biggest, deepest space 4X just got bigger and deeper!
The best-selling space 4X series of all time recently got its biggest expansion pack ever: Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade. Today, Stardock has released the first major update to it that adds a new map size, fixes bugs, improves balance and adds some new features.
Jupiter’s Forge is the first major expansion to Offworld Trading Company and it certainly wouldn’t be complete without additions to the campaign. Io has come to OTC, bringing with it significant changes to to resource tree, specifically centered around water. This means that simply adding to the Martian campaign was never going to be enough, and Io therefore has received its own separate campaign.
