Rio Grande Games in association with Temple Gates Games has announced that Race for the Galaxy will be available next week on Steam for PC players.
Race for the Galaxy, a core game in strategy gamers’ collections, will be available for $6.99. Additional expansions from the boardgame’s first arc, Gathering Storm and Rebel vs. Imperium, will be available for immediate purchase at $3.99 each. Packed with five starter worlds, ninety settlement and development cards, and a free promo pack of six new starter worlds, this game will keep players coming back to improve their galactic conquest skill over and over again.
In Race, players choose to explore, develop, settle, consume or produce to create the most prosperous empire in the Galaxy. In this tableau building game, each action resolves for all players, and players will place technology cards and world cards to build victory point engines, rush military, or find some way to edge out rival empires.
Network multiplayer mode pits players against each other in games of two to four or players can test their mettle against the neural networked AI, developed by Keldon Jones, in single player mode. With three levels of AI difficulty, players can ramp up before entering the gauntlet of a battle against hard AI. “Race for the Galaxy will have the best AI of any card of boardgame ever ported,” says Dave Neumann of Stately Play.
A suite of new features accompanies the PC launch of this digital board game, including multiplayer timers, game stats, cross device linking to facilitate friends lists and multiplayer games across PC, mobile, and tablet, as well as a beta rollout of multilingual support.
