Each week, the Epic Game Store gives away a free game.

Following on from the intergalactic theme of last week, we jump into hyperspace for Galactic Civilizations III.

INTER-GALACTIC - Can you conquer this Stardock smash?

Developed by Stardock, who brought us Sins of Solar Empire, the 2015 release sees the Precursor shield lifted from Earth and the commencement of the Terran Crusade.

An 81 score on Metacritic is a remarkable result for a 4X game, although it does share A LOT of similarities with its predecessor in the Galactic Civilizations trilogy.

But if the title's free - it's worth a shot, right?



Free Game Release Date

Galactic Civilizations III will be available on the Epic Games Store TODAY - Thursday, 21 January.

The free game goes live at 11am ET / 4pm GMT.

It will remain on the store for exactly seven days.


What's next?

We have also found out what game will arrive next week!

The arcade-themed Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition will become free on Thursday, 28 January.

The Epic Games store page reads:

"Defy gravity as you jump across floors, walls, and ceilings alike.

"Discover the mysteries and secrets hidden throughout the world of Salt and its diverse array of characters.

"Empower Dandara for combat and survival against enemies bent on oppression."

Anything else?

That's not all as there is a free game this weekend as well!
