The multiplayer launch follows on the heels of two DLC releases for the game: the Leviathans story pack and the Plantoids species pack. Both are available now. Players can also look forward to the Utopia expansion coming later this year.

Featuring the same deep strategic gameplay as Paradox’s original Stellaris, with rich and diverse alien races and emergent storytelling, Stellaris: Console Edition puts the complexity of the galaxy at your thumbsticks.

Stellaris: Console Edition lets players:

  • Behold the enormity of space with procedurally generated galaxies and an untold number of planets to explore.

  • Encounter a myriad of wild, quirky, and dangerous alien races who may prove to be crucial trade partners or conquering forces hellbent on enslaving your civilization.

  • Take on strategic space warfare and resource management to ensure the survival and advancement of your empire.

  • Explore scientific anomalies and uncover technological wonders throughout the galaxy to utilize them for your own gain.

  • Govern your own fledgling empire and secure your power and agenda through manipulating internal policies, factions, traditions and more.
