Developer Stardock has announced the next expansion for Galactic Civilizations 3, titled Mercenaries.
The new expansion will include its own story campaign and will re-introduce two old factions to GalCiv 3 for the first time: the ancient Arceans, and the aquatic, perpetually enslaved Torians, who are the focus of said campaign.
Stardock CEO, Brad Wardell stopped by IGN to give us a brief look at the new mercenary ships for which the expansion is named. Players will be able to discover “Galactic Bazaars” where various mercenaries will offer their services. Aside from having their own unique ships, they can also be assigned to individual systems to grant statistical bonuses to them.
