In Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade, the shield around Earth has fallen, but humanity has been anything but idle. Furious that their attempts at diplomacy and goodwill were met with treachery and violence, Earth turned to its most valuable asset: its people. From spies trained in espionage to soldiers ready to invade enemy planets, the galaxy is ready for a crusade.

Discover your enemy's weak points with espionage, actively invade and conquer planets, and watch talented citizens rise to power to drive your civilization into a golden age. With new races, a detailed civilization builder tool, a new story-based campaign, and more, Crusade brings the depth and excitement to Galactic Civilizations III that players have been asking for.

Check out some of the exciting new features below:

Invade enemy planets while protecting your own
Conquering a world is no small task. The revamped invasion system in Crusade allows a citizen to be trained as a soldier in order to invade worlds. Strategic and challenging, invasions will require careful planning as you train your legions and determine which tile to attack first. Be careful not to forget to defend your own worlds from your enemies, too!

Lone Star


The Sabre

Train gifted citizens in the art of Espionage 
Smaller civilizations can keep up with their larger counterparts by training their citizens in the art of espionage. Spies can steal technologies, circulate rumors to create civil unrest, sabotage enemy worlds, or even go so far as to assassinate enemy citizens to keep their edge above the competition.


Grow your civilization with the help of Galactic Citizens
Shape the course of your civilization’s destiny with talented individuals called citizens. Choose from over a dozen unique roles - admiral, engineer, celebrity, pioneer, and more - to help your civilizations flourish. Keep your citizen on their homeworld or send them off through dangerous interstellar travel in order to help the colonies on new worlds you’ve conquered.

Ship Builder


Civilization Builder

Use the Civilization Builder to develop and share unique creations on Steam
Create a custom faction complete with leader, ideology, and abilities. You can also customize your own galactic navy and create unique conversation dialogue for your faction to use when it comes into contact with friends and enemies. The civilization builder is integrated into Steam Workshop so that you can upload your creation for other users to enjoy!


Take over the galaxy with new races and civilizations
Meet the members of the Terran Resistance, lurk deep within the bowels of the living rock of asteroids as the new Onyx Hive faction, or look down on other primitive races as the cybernetic space amoebas, the Slyne.


...and much, much more!
