Today, Paradox Interactive announced that Stellaris: Apocalypse, the newest expansion for the empire-destroying game, will be available on February 22, 2018 for $19.99. The expansion focuses on new warfare options and galaxy-altering weaponry. Several free features will also be added to Stellaris when Apocalypse launches, giving all players more tools and methods to stave off doom. The free update will also arrive for all platforms on February 22.
It's great to see that Stellaris is being aggressively supported even over a year later. Usually, many developers release a Game of the Year Edition by now and move onto the next project. Stellaris is a title you can play for hundreds of hours so it's understandable why the developer's approach is this long-term.
According to the developer, Stellaris is an evolution of the grand strategy genre with space exploration at its core. It features deep strategic gameplay, and a rich and enormously diverse selection of alien races and emergent storytelling. The game contains engaging moments that reward interstellar exploration as you traverse, discover, interact, and learn more about the multitude of species you will encounter during your travels. There are a lot of mechanics to master here so be prepared for a somewhat steep learning curve when you first dive in. It takes some time to get familiar with the gameplay, but it's quite satisfying once you do.
