Galactic Civilizations II is the sequel to Stardock's award-winning strategy game. Set 30 years further in the future, the alien races from Galactic Civilizations are caught up in an inter-stellar civil war. But as they will all soon learn, there are far worse things in the universe ... than each other.
The year is 2225. The reckless humans have formed a coalition to defend themselves from the rising power of the evil Drengin Empire. The galaxy is about to be set ablaze but there is something far worse out there than each other...
