Stellaris: Utopia Release Date Announced

Utopia will be with us from the 6th of April. Despite the imminent release date, Utopia itself, is a goal that will keep players busy long after release. Some would even say that “the journey is more important than the destination”, if that’s the case then we’d better all learn about Ascension Perks quickly.

Ascension Perks are a key element on the path to Utopia. Paradox have outlined the new Stellaris Perks as following three basic journeys; Biological, Psionic and Synthetic, each route also has multiple sub options. All this is exciting stuff, and ties in well with what else we know about Utopia.

Paradox certainly love their hard Sci Fi, and they’ve been doing a terrific job so far, so I can’t wait to see what else Utopia brings us.

Official Press Release

STOCKHOLM – 27 February 2017 – Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio have set a release date for their first expansion to their celebrated space grand strategy game. Stellaris: Utopia will be shaping galactic civilizations as of April 6, 2017 and will be found at Steam and the Paradox Store for $19.99/€19.99.

One of the core improvements in Utopia is the introduction of Ascension Perks. As your species advances and gains new traditions, it can choose how it wants to evolve as it is further enlightened. You can choose between a biological path, a psionic path or a synthetic path, with various options within these broad categories. Body, Mind or Machine – how will your species challenge the future?

Utopia also includes:

  • Megastructures: Build wondrous structures in your systems including Dyson Spheres and ring worlds, bringing both prestige and major advantages to your race.
  • Habitat Stations: Build “tall” and establish space stations that will house more population, serving the role of planets in a small and confined empire.
  • Rights and Privileges: Set specific policies for which of the many species under your thumb will have the rights and privileges of full citizenship. Build an egalitarian paradise or follow a caste system.
  • And even more improvements and updates, including (as is traditional with all of our paid content releases) free updates for every Stellaris owner!

Stellaris: Utopia brings even greater depth and variety to a game already celebrated for its story-telling power and near endless possibilities. Are you ready for perfection?
