Take Your Empire to New Heights in ‘Stellaris: Galactic Paragons’ - Now Available
Paradox Interactive today launched Galactic Paragons, the latest expansion for the sci-fi strategy game Stellaris. Players can strengthen their empire by customizing and fine-tuning their empire’s leaders to make the most of their unique characteristics. Galactic Paragons is available today via online stores for a suggested retail price of $14.99/£12.79/€14.99.
Galactic Paragons expands Stellaris’ Council mechanic, introduces leaders who bring specialized abilities to your empire, and adds tons of additional features. Players gain control over how they invest in and strengthen their leaders to guide their empire and influence the galaxy’s future.
Features of Galactic Paragons include*:
Unique Council Roles: Specialized roles and benefits are included in Galactic Paragons to expand upon the new Council Mechanics in Stellaris! Find dozens of unique council roles based on your civics and government types, and unlock additional positions as your empire evolves.
New Dynamic Leaders: Recruit, improve, and follow the leaders of your empire through the ages! You may shape them by picking their traits, selecting their veteran class, and guide them towards their destiny, up until they retire - or perish!
Meet Galactic Heroes: Attract paragons of renown to your council: unique leaders with their own art, events, and stories may join your empire and bring their own benefits to your government. Or, discover four Legendary Paragons with intricate event chains and unique mechanics!
New Traditions, Civics, And More:
A new “Under One Rule” Origin that tells the tale of the leader who founded your empire
Eight new Civics focused on leadership, from immortalizing the personalities of leaders past in digital archives to heavily optimized council selection via corporate charter
12 new Veteran Classes
Hundreds of new Leader Traits
Two new Tradition Trees, giving players new edicts and improved leaders
New ships, art, and story content
All Stellaris players will also receive the free 3.8 ‘Gemini’ from the Stellaris custodians team, which includes a tremendous number of Quality of Life updates. Alongside Galactic Paragons, two multiplayer game modes are now available in open beta: Cooperative PvE and Competitive PvP.
Cooperative PvE allows players to join together to take on enemies as a single empire. This more relaxed gaming environment is conducive to teaching others how to play the game or dividing responsibilities of empire management.
Cooperative PvP allows groups of players to join opposing empires and fight against each other. This division of duties may be less overwhelming and reduce barriers to entry for non-competitive players. For those who are more competitive, empires can also be locked and require a password.
