Empire Universe 3 is a free-to-play browser-based empire management RTS where players take command of their own planet, playing as one of nine different alien species, each with their own benefits and drawbacks, players must raise up a mighty Empire that competes with other players in the game. As an alien commander it is each player’s choice as to whether they wish to expand using peace, trade and diplomacy or with acts of aggression and war.


Players are each represented by their own commander avatar, choosing from a variety of available races, selecting a different skin for your commander, giving them a name that will represent you in the game and even choosing the look of your own planet. Your character represents you in the game and your choice of race will both help and hinder you depending on your style of play, some races being better suited to research and technological pursuits whereas others excel when used aggressively and are more war focused.

The different areas that a race can either excel in or in contrast be poorly skilled with are: Trading, Battle, Construction, Navigation, Research and Economy.
