Stellaris Available For Pre-Order

Stellaris will be available to play from the 9th of May, but buying Stellaris before the 9th will give you various typical pre-order bonuses, in either the pre-order, Nova, or Galaxy editions of the game.

Paradox have already proven their worth in the 4X space, however as optimistic as some lets plays and previews for Paradox have been, the game still has some hurdles to overcome and some mysteries to reveal. In other words, I’d advise some caution before pre-ordering.

Having said that, if you love everything 4X or you think austerity is a nice name for a yacht then go ahead and get the Galaxy edition.

Countdown to Launch: Stellaris Now Available for Pre-Order

Paradox to Send Fans’ Names into Space 

Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer of games that don’t just take up space, today began accepting pre-orders for Stellaris, the forthcoming sci-fi grand strategy game from Paradox Development Studio. Several versions of Stellaris are now available for pre-purchase, including premium editions which include a variety of bonus content. Stellaris challenges players to explore a new universe and establish an empire across the stars, venturing into new territory for Paradox’s traditionally historical games. The game will be released for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs on May 9, 2016.

Players can pre-order the Stellaris game in the Standard Edition ($39.99), or in the Nova Edition ($49.99), the latter of which includes not only the game but also a 140-minute digital soundtrack, exclusive cosmetic DLC and more. The Galaxy Edition ($69.99) is also available and includes all of the content from the Nova Edition, along with an extensive Digital Collector’s Book detailing the art and design of Stellaris, the novel “Stellaris: Infinite Frontiers” on eBook, and an exclusive digital wallpaper signed by the Stellaris development team.

In addition, fans who pre-order any edition of Stellaris will have their name sent into lower space by Paradox. A USB drive filled with the names of all pre-order participants will be attached to a weather balloon and launched into the upper stratosphere in an effort to let drive-by extraterrestrials know who among us are the most enthusiastic to explore space and meet new friends. Pre-orders will also be rewarded with a set of Stellaris ringtones from the game’s original soundtrack.

If you pre-order you also get the Creatures of the Void DLC – a cosmetic add on that includes five new alien designs chosen by our community. Watch as the Hydra/Xenomorph, Evil Porcupine, Dinosaur Bird, Shadowy Anthropoid, and Fungoid Infected Mammalian spread their grasping appendages across the galaxy.

Stellaris is the new science fiction strategy game from Paradox Development Studio, the creators of Crusader KingsEuropa Universalis and Hearts of Iron.
