Galactic Civilizations II : Twilight of the Arnor Has Arrived
Wednesday, April 30, 2008
PLYMOUTH, MI – April 30, 2008 – The mystery of the Arnor is about to be solved: Stardock is pleased to announce that Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor is now available for download. The expansion pack to the critically acclaimed 4X turn-based space strategy game, Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, completes the Dread Lord saga with the return of the powerful precursor civilization, the Arnor. The title requires the first expansion pack (Dark Avatar) to run and is available for $29.95 at http://www.galciv2.com/twilight/ . A bundle of the entire saga is available at a discount at www.stardock.com .
"We're thrilled to release the last chapter of this saga," said Brad Wardell, president and CEO of Stardock. "This has truly been an awesome project to work on. With Dark Avatar and Twilight of the Arnor, we set out to prove that expansion packs can be more than just 'leftover' gameplay and mediocre upgrades. Twilight of the Arnor completes the Galactic Civilizations series in a way that stands on its own. We are proud of it and know fans of the series will love it."
With endless hours of replayability, the expansion pack is a must-have for any fan of strategy games. The Arnor have left clues of their society all over the galaxy – players who find them and use them properly will be greatly rewarded as they struggle for galactic dominance. As players observe and interact with other races and cultures in the game, they will decipher the best ways to overtake them, making them the ultimate masters of the galaxy.
The final expansion pack boasts more features and options than the title’s sequel, Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, did over the original video game. Fans of the series will appreciate all-new and unique tech trees for each civilization, as well as revamped graphics and the ability to play on most PC configurations (XP or Vista.)
