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.
