Stellaris blasts off on Tencent Games Platform on January 16

Paradox Interactive and Tencent bring bestselling space strategy game to Chinese language market.

The galaxy is vast and full of wonders. Paradox Interactive today announced that Stellaris, the critically acclaimed grand strategy sci-fi game, will be coming to the Chinese language market on January 16 2017, with pre-orders beginning today.

The Chinese language-version of the game will be available at a base price of 112 Yuan, subject to sales and promotions. The Leviathans and Plantoids expansions, as well as other Stellaris DLC, will launch alongside the base game.

As previously communicated, Paradox Interactive has entered into a partnership with Tencent, a leading provider of internet value-added services in China, to bring its games to the Chinese language market via Tencent’s proprietary platform TGP (Tencent Games Platform).

The Stellaris launch follows the launch of Cities: Skylines, which became available on TGP on December 12, 2016.

In Stellaris, players 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. With randomly created opponents and procedurally generated star systems, no two games can ever play out the same way. Stellaris originally launched on PC in May 2016.
