Announced as Stardock celebrates its 20th anniversary, Galactic Civilizations III has also had a few bits of information leak on it. Possibly most shockingly, Stardock revealed that GCIII will be coming exclusively to 64-bit PCs. The game will also add new features including multiplayer, political intrigue, upgraded visuals, and much more.
Of the move to 64-bit, Stardock vice president Derek Paxton said:
“The move to 64-bit architecture heralds a new era of game development at Stardock. The technology allows players to experience a level of graphical detail and on-screen activity unprecedented in large-scale strategy PC games. It dramatically increases the size and scope of the maps, and opens the door for modders to add a virtually unlimited amount of new content to the game.”
