One of the latest space traveling strategy games to hit Steam is Paradox Development’s Stellaris. The simulation RTS tasks players to conquer and investigate the universe, while at the same time etching their names across the cosmos. Stellaris is available now for PC via Steam.
Grand strategies are a must in this game if you want to progress onward without any casualties. Being a space exploration game at its core, enormous galaxies patiently await to be discovered that are randomly generated, and hold key interaction points as noted below.
“Explore a vast galaxy full of wonder! Paradox Development Studio, makers of the Crusader Kings and Europa Universalis series presents Stellaris, an evolution of the grand strategy genre with space exploration at its core.”
Now I know that randomly generated stuff can seem a bit lazy on the developers end, but sometimes I do have to admit that it does add a nice dose of discovery, and a new essence to what becomes dull and very familiar. The upside of randomized content is that once you are bored and very high in level, there’s something new to discover or something that’s unpredictable.
This all falls in line with the typical stuff that you would find in the average space RTS genre that calls for negotiating, grand battles, and other galactic choices. You can catch the official trailer for Stellaris courtesy of Paradox Interaction.
The next trailer actually shows more in-game gameplay compared to the video above, which basically summed up the early story of the game. You catch the most recent trailer that was posted below.
Offering a wide variety of choices and similar strategies to Crusader Kings and Europa Universalis, it all boils down to trading, conquering, negotiating and space exploration. If all of that floats your boat, you can check out Stellaris, which is available for $39.99 on Steam.
