Stellaris : promo et sortie d’Utopia

A l’occasion de la sortie hier d’Utopia, voici une nouvelle bande-annonce récapitulant les principales caractéristiques de la première extension majeure pour Stellaris. Important DLC étoffant nettement le très beau 4X de Paradox, DLC dont la sortie est aussi accompagnée par une mise à jour ainsi que par une belle promotion pendant quelques jours.

Attention, notez que l’éditeur recommande vivement de finir les parties en cours avant d’appliquer la nouvelle mise à jour 1.5, qui a priori rend donc vos sauvegardes incompatibles. Si nécessaire voyez les instructions dans cette annonce.

Au passage sachez aussi que ce week-end les jeux Paradox sont en promotion sur Steam. Où Stellaris s’y trouve donc à -40%.

Pour plus d’informations sur Stellaris – Utopia, voyez cet article puis cette page chez l’éditeur ou ici sur Steam.

Concernant le jeu de base, à lire également si besoin notre article Stellaris, vers l’infini et au-delà !, ce récapitulatif sur le patch 1.2, puis les informations sur le site officiel, cette fiche chez l’éditeur ou celle-ci sur Steam.



Build Heaven in the Stars with Stellaris: Utopia
Paradox releases expansion to hit sci-fi strategy game

STOCKHOLM – Apr. 6, 2017 – The time has come to lead your species into a permanent golden age; to a future where the brilliance of your scientists and energy of your administrators is harnessed to build immense megastructures that dwarf even the planet itself. Sound leadership and a firm hand in diplomacy will bring your species to the promised land, to Utopia.

Utopia is the first major expansion for Stellaris, the best-selling science fiction grand strategy game that delivers unparalleled variety in an ever changing universe. Utopia adds new ways to improve your planets and even your species itself, with a greater focus on allowing you to reach your full potential in a multitude of new ways – both peaceful and aggressive.

One of the major upgrades in Utopia is the addition of Ascension perks. Harness the unity of your species to establish strong cultural traditions allowing your empire to pursue your specific vision of Utopia. Choose to advance via genetic engineering, psionic exploration, or even abandon frail mortal flesh entirely and pursue a path of cybernetic ascension.

Other features available in Utopia include:

  • Megastructures: Build ringworlds or Dyson spheres to make the most of your star system, adding prestige and power to those who wield this technology.
  • Habitat Stations: Your subjects can orbital habitat stations. No longer will you be forced to fight costly wars to house a burgeoning population.
  • More Evil Empires: Use your subjects as domestic servants, battle thralls…or food
  • Indoctrination: Before bringing a pre-FTL civilization in to the galactic community, it’s important that they believe the right things. Guide the primitives to follow your true path.
  • Advanced Civics: Three new civics for your empire to aid in the dynamic story-telling that Utopia excels at – syncretic evolution, mechanist and fanatic purifier.
  • Hive Minds: Can you master the challenge of ruling an empire that is one collective consciousness?
  • And more: New events, new decisions and the mystery of The Shroud.

Stellaris: Utopia launches with the Banks update to Stellaris, another major upgrade free to all Stellaris owners. The Banks update reworks the place of factions in your population, adds new challenges to maintaining internal stability within your Empire, and makes changes to how ethics work in the game. The goal is to make empire management a more engaging task.
Starting later today, a number of Paradox Interactive titles will go on sale on Steam for the weekend, including the Stellaris core game. Players across the galaxy who have yet to explore Paradox’s new worlds will have the perfect opportunity to try the latest version of the game alongside its newest expansion. Stellaris: Utopia is now available on Steam and the official Paradox store for $19.99.
