Space-age strategy game Stellaris lands on Earth this May

A whole new world for Paradox Interactive

Stellaris, an intergalactic strategy title from Paradox Interactive, will launch May 9, the company announced during its Game Developers Conference press event. The studio debuted a gameplay trailer for the Linux, Mac and Windows PC game, which differs from its typical historical fare.

The video above shows off Stellaris' galactic, futuristic setting — a first for Paradox, which is known for games like the Hearts of Iron series. It features procedurally generated star systems to explore, a variety of playable species and "randomly created opponents," according to the studio.

For more on Stellaris' astronomical scale — and strategy elements, as expected from a Paradox Interactive project — check out our overview below.
