CDV have announced that Imperium Galactica III : Genesis will be released in the UK, France, Germany and America in March 2002. Developed by Philos Labs, the Hungarian company behind last year's Aztec strategy game Theocracy, IG3 features a mix of stunning real-time space battles, empire-building and diplomacy as you take on a range of powerful alien races. "Having won the rights to publish IG3, we're going all-out to ensure this is the biggest in the series", CDV president Terry Malham declared. Accordingly the game will have a more tactical focus than previous installments, with gorgeous real-time 3D graphics throughout and a storyline from Hungarian sci-fi writer Zsolt Nyulaszi. It was certainly looking impressive when we saw the game in action at ECTS a couple of months ago, and if the gameplay can match the eye candy Philos could be on to a winner. Look for further details in the next few months, but in the meantime you can get a glimpse of what to expect on the newly launched IG3 website. Related Feature - Imperium Galactica 3 screenshots
