Stardock announced the release date of Galactic Civilizations IV: Supernova Edition, the latest entry in its award-winning space turn-based strategy game will be October 19, 2023 and will coincide with Stardock’s 30-year anniversary.
Beginning shortly after humanity has discovered faster-than-light travel, Galactic Civilizations puts the player in the role of leader of a united world looking to expand their civilization into the galaxy. As leader, you must decide what technologies your scientists focus on, what policies your government enacts and what your foreign policy with alien species will be.
Galactic Civilizations IV: Supernova Edition on Steam is the integration of the Epic version of Galactic Civilizations IV with the Supernova Expansion pack now in development.
“Supernova is, by far, the biggest expansion Stardock has ever made,” said Brad Wardell, founder of Stardock who returned to the design chair for Supernova. “It doesn’t just add a lot of new content but transforms the gameplay in ways not seen in a 4X game before.”
Amongst the new innovations in Supernova is AlienGPT, a technology that allows players to describe their own custom civilization and then uses generative AI to create it. Other new features include the Civilization Vault, Cultural Progression, a story-driven campaign, several new canon alien civilizations, a new starship designer, a new battle system and much more.
Galactic Civilizations IV can be found on Steam and Epic. Epic customers can upgrade from Galactic Civilizations IV to Supernova for a highly discounted rate. Release date is October 19 for $49.99 ($39.99 during its early access period).
