Pulsar_lostcolony.exe connects to google.com?

Last night, my PC Tools Firewall Plus v7 said Pulsar_lostcolony.exe was trying to connect to google.com at TCP port 443. Why? This was in my decade old, updated 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 PC.

Hey ant! We've recently added a few anti-cheat measures to the game, one such measure checks a time standard to make sure speed cheats can be detected. Google is a pretty common standard to check since it's accurate and reliable. The game is basically just asking google for the time. Hope that clarifies!
