Stardock heeft de expansion Altarian Prophecy voor hun strategische spacegame Galactic Civilizations aangekondigd. Deze uitbreiding bevat naast twee nieuwe campaigns ook twee nieuwe rassen, nieuwe schepen en maps en een map-editor. Een preview van alle nieuwe features is te lezen op de officiële website, waar je ook terecht kunt voor de preorder. Altarian Prophecy wordt verwacht in februari 2004.In the late 22nd century, humanity came into contact with 5 major alien civilizations. These civilizations were called, the Drengin Empire, the Torian Confederation, the Arcean Empire, the Yor Collective and the Altarian Republic. Of these 5, the Altarians were the most curious to us. Not for their cultural traits or their technology but because they happened to look human. How was this possible? The "Altarian Prophecy" is a campaign that takes the player on a multi-game journey to solve the mystery alluded to in Galactic Civilizations. In doing so, it introduces two new civilizations: The Dominion of the Korx and the Drath. These two civilizations hold the secret to Altaria's past, but worse, they know the Altarian Prophecy that for tells the destruction of the galaxy that is connected to Altaria's past.
