Space Empires V is the fifth main game in the Space Empires series. Established as a 4X game, the SE series is similar to games such as Master of Orion, Galactic Civilizations, and Emperor of the Fading Suns.

SE5 has an updated UI, new ship design system, and is "mod" friendly. This edition also features the ability to watch battles unfold in detail.

SE5 shares with its predecessor the ability to completely customize your vehicles, and random map generation, but goes on to improve upon the old design by adding 24-bit 3D graphics, the ability to create your own AI players with specific traits, abilities, and speech, and an improvement in the number of ship designs and sizes.
