Stellaris Now Available

Posted on 09 May 2016 by

Stellaris is Paradox’s first foray into space. They have taken what made some of their previous games great and applied here. You will go explore strange new worlds, seek out new lifeforms and civilisations, boldly go where no-one of your species has gone before… Oh, and no redshirts alas.

Set in galaxies of multiple sizes and shapes, with randomly generated statistics of alien species, you will have to manage first contact, diplomatic relationships, ancient spacecraft and Cosmozoans, some more friendly than the others. With the random generation of stars and planets, except in select systems, such as Sol, there is a very high chance that no two games are the same.

If you are still undecided I do suggest you keep an eye out for our review if you have enjoyed previous Paradox titles, or grand space strategy games. When I started working on the appeal I completely lost the rest of the day.

Official Press Release

New Sci-Fi Grand Strategy Game Now Available for Extraterrestrial Explorers Everywhere

Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer of truly grand strategy games, today released Stellaris for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs. Stellaris is the latest game from Paradox Development Studio, the creators of such deep strategy series as Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings, Hearts of Iron, and more. In the studio’s first-ever sci-fi grand strategy game, players can begin a journey into a randomly generated universe as the species of their choice – exploring new worlds, encountering new beings, and facing the challenges of intergalactic colonization, diplomacy, warfare, perils, and crises.

In Stellaris, players must guide a species of their own design to power and glory in the depths of space. From humble beginnings as players leave their home planet and explore the unknown, to tense “first contact” moments with alien species, to the difficult choices and responsibilities of managing diplomatic relationships with other star-faring races, Stellaris presents the iconic gameplay of a Paradox grand strategy title on a galactic scale. With randomly created opponents and procedurally generated star systems, no two games can ever play out the same way.
