Paradox Interactive will be launching the first major expansion for Stellaris called Utopia. The new expansion pack is set to arrive on PC starting April 6th.
The pack will be available both on the Steam store and through the Paradox digital storefront for $19.99.
The description of the expansion reads…
“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?”
The expansion will contain all new mega-structures in which to decorate your planets with, along with habitat stations that can extend your population growth, and all new rights and privileges. You can see what the expansion entails with the trailer below.
The trailer is well put together, showing the different cultures and what they would do if they managed to get their hands on unimaginable resources. No matter what, everyone is intent on getting to Utopia.
The trailer isn’t just there for fluff and pomp, it’s actually a representation of how players can establish their space colonies and direct and manage their resources.
It’s completely possible to be a benevolent and giving diplomacy, or a hard-nosed militaristic regime. The choice is all yours. If you enjoy the 4x grand strategy games that have become hugely popular amongst sci-fi fans, then Stellaris seems like the kind of game that’s worth checking out.
You can look to get your hands on the expansion starting April 6th. The base version of Stellaris – which became a sleeper hit when it launched last year – is currently available right now from participating digital distributors.
