Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords (usually referred to as GalCiv2) is a turn-based 4x strategy game where the player has to create a space empire, starting with a single planet through conquest, diplomacy, influence or ascending to a higher plane.

GalCiv2 was developed by Stardock Interactive and initially published by Paradox Interactive on February 21, 2006. Two expansions were released for the game - Dark Avatar and Twilight of the Arnor, along with a major content patch for owners of either expansion pack, GalCiv2 2.0.
