Stellaris: Leviathans Feature Spotlight

Posted on 17 Oct 2016 by

With the release of Stellaris first story pack, Leviathans, just days away (20th Oct), Paradox have release a feature spotlight, explaining just what to expect in terms of new and expanded features.

It’s worth remembering that the simultaneous release of the free Heinlein expansion, will cover different mechanics areas to the DLC. Largely focusing on existing features Heinlein offers improvements to all players with improved sector AI, re-worked combat mechanics (more rock paper scissors focus) improved diplomacy and much more.

Leviathans will be adding many new mid to end-game features that will develop a storyline and keep gameplay challenging and exciting right to the end. Some of the things to expect in Leviathans are: Guardians (ancient, unique and huge aliens), Enclaves (habitats that house advanced races who may be willing to trade with you) and finally the “War In Heaven”, an addition to the mechanics of the existing fallen empires. When triggered, this war will encompass the entire galaxy, leaving you with important choices of which side to join, or whether to attempt to stay neutral or even gather your own alliance to battle these behemoths. Experienced Stellaris players know that a number of secret events may take place towards the end of a normal game, it’s interesting to note that various events may distract the fallen empires from their war, and can be used to your advantage.

The full list of changes for the patch and DLC can be seen here.
