GalCiv Expansion

The official announcement of Galactic Civilizations: Altarian Prophecy is online (thanks Worthplaying), offering details on a planned commercial add-on for Stardock's space game remake. The expansion will require the original game to play, and is slated to be available in February 2004. Included will be several pre-generated maps and map and scenario editors, as well as a solo campaign, described here:
The "Altarian Prophecy" is a campaign that takes the player on a multi-game journey to solve the mystery alluded to in Galactic Civilizations. In doing so, it introduces two new civilizations: The Dominion of the Korx and the Drath. These two civilizations hold the secret to Altaria's past, but worse, they know the Altarian Prophecy that for tells the destruction of the galaxy that is connected to Altaria's past.

I guess I don't understand some of that criticism: you can essentially play as any of the alien races, simply by altering your intial "powers" and whatnot: yes, you still get the "human" graphics, but from the game perspective, that's just window dressing.

I'm loving this game: I can play a few moves while doing something else, then return and play a few more moves. The AI is sickeningly good, even at lower levels. Reminds me a lot of when I played Alpha Centauri.

And the support is just great: instead of moving on to Galactic Civilizations II or some other game, Stardock is continuing to provide great content for the game (and, with the next expansion, more customizations). It is a great model for gaming support.
