Galactic Civilization dev outs new game

Pretty turn-based fantasy strategy.

Galactic Civilization developer Stardock has unveiled a brand new game called Elemental: War of Magic.

This is a PC turn-based fantasy strategy outing based around the old 4X principles: explore, expand, exploit and exterminate. And players as sovereigns will be tasked with growing the empire and winning either by conquest, magical supremacy, diplomatic alliances or completion of a master quest.

Early screenshots show the world is presented in an appealing cartoon style. There's talk of persistent multiplayer matches hosted by Stardock plus user-created mods.

Elemental: War of Magic is scheduled to enter public beta in June 2009, and those pre-ordering the game through Stardock's strategy-focused digital distribution site Impulse will be given preference.
