Coming soon, Paradox’s next DLC expansion for Stellaris will hit Steam. The planet-killer weapons and new race characteristics are just part of the new content for this release. Since we covered the Apocalypse DLC, Paradox has confirmed the release date for the DLC.
The new content will be launching on 22 February and brings planet destruction with its galaxy-altering weaponry and more additional features which will be added to the base game. The new trailer can be seen below, along with an official blurb from Paradox.
Stellaris: Apocalypse redefines stellar warfare for all players with a host of new offensive and defensive options. Destroy entire worlds with terrifying new planet-killer weapons, fight against (or alongside) ruthless space pirates, and maybe discover a few non-violent game features as well.
Stellaris Apocalypse Features
- That’s No Moon, neither is That One, That One Might be a Moon, Wait, No:Keep the local systems in line with fear of the new “Colossus” planet-killer weapon – a technological terror that eliminates entire worlds from the universe.
- All Your Base Are Belong to You: New enormous “Titan” capital ships can lead your fleets to conquest, offering tremendous bonuses to the vessels under their command. Meanwhile, fortify key systems with massive orbital installations and secure your homeworld as an impenetrable bastion among the stars.
- Pirates of the Constellation: Watch out for Marauders – space nomads who raid settled empires and carve out their lives on the fringe of civilization. Hire them as mercenaries in your own conflicts, but take care that they don’t unify and trigger a new late-game crisis!
- Some Non-Violent Features: New Ascension Perks and Civics are added in the expansion, along with new Unity Ambitions that provide new ways to spend Unity and customize your development.
