It's Thursday, and you know what that means! That's right, it's time for a new free Epic Games Store offer, as always. Today's game takes us back to the 4X Strategic genre, but with a spatial twist. Here you go, Galactic Civilization III.

 

“What would happen if humans woke up one day and found they were not alone in the galaxy? What if they went their own way into space and discovered other alien civilizations with their stories and motives, in search of glory? Choose your race from Humans (Human), Drengin, Altarians (Altarian) and many more and lead your civilization to a golden age in one of the greatest 4X strategy video games ever created!

Research new technologies, design spaceships and colonize new worlds as you face threats and overcome challenges from new and mysterious sources. Negotiate trade and treaties, wage wars, spy on your enemies and promote model citizens. And when you're done, continue playing as one of several alien civilizations, each featuring a story, a tech tree, naval components, and more.

Galactic Civilizations III now offers Crusade and Retribution expansion packs! Join the ranks of galactic leaders today and answer this question: how will you govern your galaxy? "

As usual, you need to log into your account epic Games to redeem this new offer, which will remain valid until the next one 28 January 2021.
