Twilight of the Arnor Digital Launch Date Set

Date for long-awaited expansion pack set to April 30

Stardock is pleased to announce that Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor has gone into final testing and is set to launch on April 30. The expansion pack to the critically acclaimed 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. A bundle of the entire saga is available at a discount at

CEO and President of Stardock Brad Wardell said, “This is arguably the most comprehensive expansion pack in strategy game history, Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor has more new features and content than Galactic Civilizations II had over the original.”

Among the new features are unique technology trees for each of the 12 major civilizations. This includes unique weapons, ships, planetary improvements, and more. Wardell continued, “This game has been such a labor of love for us. This week we’re finalizing content and feature additions that were held back during the public beta.”

Additionally, a new victory condition has been added called “Ascension” in which players can take control of the Ascension crystals (introduced in the campaign) for victory. Adding to the new features are completely revamped graphics.
