Galactic Civilizations II: The Dark Avatar

It takes a while to separate the new stuff in Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords from the really new stuff in the Dark Avatar expansion pack. Stardock has been continually improving the core game since its release, so if you haven’t played it for a while, you might not be sure where to draw the line between “update” and “add-on.”

Originally scheduled for a late 2006 release, the game is actually being held back by the developers sothey can add more changes to an expansion that already forces veteran players to re-evaluate their strategies.
