Paradox Interactive Launches Stellaris Galaxy-wide
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.

Prepare for your first expedition into Stellaris with a new trailer here:


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.

Awesome. Sorry if I sound slimy, but you should definitely feel proud of yourselves for this game. You've really exceeded my expectations. Your engagement with the community both through the streams and the forums has been brilliant. You've listened to people, but you've also had the bravery to go your own way on some elements. For both those in front of the camera and behind the scenes, well done, enjoy your deserved beers! I'm off to play it and see if it's anything like it was in the streams. ;)

Hey,

I find it utterly upsetting, that you praise yourself with releasing Stellaris "Galaxy Wide" today.
I'm on Kepler-186f right now and I can't play Stellaris right now. Don't ask me how I can write in this forum, while I am 490 lightyeas away.
(Hint: It's a Jump Drive)
I just want to state, that I'm very disappointed, that you are not doing what your are say you are doing.
So finaly I assure you, that if I don't get to play Stellaris till 48p.m. Kepler Time, I am going to my mom
(who is a queen by the way) and tell her: "MUGANI! HAK HAK HAK?"

Best wishes and HAK HAK HAK!

Yeah, the galaxy is so wide that it only spans ... Steam. Damn it. Because it promises to be a wonderful game for me, I bought it from that monopolist store, but only because I had no choice. Would be much nicer to have had it available from other shops.

I have to say, I am positively surprised about the game. Always been a little on the fence on Paradox leaving the historical grounds for this grand strategy experiment, but ended up getting it because of the immense peer pressure my extraterrestrial friends applied on me. And so far, I must say, they've done an amazing job at combining different elements of the grand strategy and the space strategy genres. Thumbs up!
