Get Galactic Civilizations III for Free

The Epic Games Store is now offering free copies of Galactic Civilizations III for Windows as its latest weekly giveaway. Stardock's space strategy sequel is yours to keep as long as you snag a copy between now and next Thursday. At that point first-person puzzle game Relicta will take its place with a 100% discount. Here's a bit on GalCiv3:
What if one day, humans woke up to find that they weren’t alone in the galaxy? They make their way into space and discover other alien civilizations with their own histories and motivations looking to make a name for themselves. Choose your race - Human, Drengin, Altarian, and so many more - and lead your civilization into a golden age in one of the largest 4X strategy games ever made!

Research new technology, design starships, and colonize new worlds as you face threats and conquer challenges from new and mysterious sources. Negotiate trade and treaties, wage wars, spy on your enemies, and promote outstanding citizens. And when you've finished that, play again as one of the many included alien civilizations each with its own history, technology tree, ship components, and more.

I enjoyed Gal Civ 2. How different is this?

It's old with 7 year old play mechanics. It's not that fundamentally different from GC2 though the ship designing is goddamned atrocious in it with very clunky controls. You can design cool ships but you'll be spending some time doing it. Something you'll need to do to maximize your ship class because the default designs are merely "ok".
IIRC, ship design in GC 2 was also clunky and time consuming.

In my opinion the game is just boring AF. I tried to get into it like 3 different times because people kept saying it was great. But it literally had nothing interesting for me. Plonking down buildings on planets to get adjacency bonuses, the exploration just giving you nothing interesting. There was literally no reason to play this game versus Endless Space 2. And that was astounding to me...that they had a DLC to put heroes in the game...wtf? And the combat is equally uninteresting and flat. Why the hell was I playing this? That's what I thought all the way through.

Someone dared make a comment about how they liked the game the last time Epic gave it away, there was always a failed Nostradamus prediction amongst the fray.
I'm not sure what you are driving at. That old conversation was about the viability of the EGS business model, which I was not opposed to, but wondered simply about its effectiveness long term. Given that they're still giving away free games, the jury is still out. My question here, even though I already had the game in my library from the last time, is this: "is this game different enough to justify learning and playing given that I have a lot of hours in GC2 already?" There was none of that kind of discussion last time.

I haven't played this yet. I have been meaning to look at Stellaris, but free is a good price to check this out first. Weird that I had it from the first giveaway and completely forgot.
