Utopia Expansion Now Available for Stellaris – Console Edition

Paradox Interactive has just released the first expansion for the console version of Stellaris.

Utopia originally released for the Steam version of Stellaris back in 2017. The expansion adds megastructures, ascension perks, habitat stations, propaganda, and expanded slavery and government mechanics. You can check out the launch trailer above.

Here’s a rundown of the DLC:

Utopia brings a host of changes to the core of Stellaris, including:

  • MEGASTRUCTURES – Build wondrous structures in your systems including Dyson Spheres and ring worlds, bringing both prestige and major advantages to your race.
  • HABITAT STATIONS – Build “tall” and establish space stations that will house more population, serving the role of planets in a small and confined empire.
  • ASCENSION PERKS – Collect Unity points and adopt Traditions to unlock Ascension Perks that allow you to customize your empire in unique ways. Follow one of the three Ascension Paths and achieve Biological Mastery, give up your biological forms in a Synthetic Evolution, or unlock the full psionic potential of your species through Transcendance.
  • INDOCTRINATION – Influence primitive civilizations and make them adopt your ethics through the use of observation stations, preparing them for enlightenment or annexation.
  • ADVANCED SLAVERY – Maximize the benefits of slavery by choosing specific roles for enthralled species. Have them serve other Pops as Domestic Servants, fight for your empire as Battle Thralls, or keep them as Livestock to feed your people.
  • ADVANCED GOVERNMENTS – Adopt unique civics and authorities for your government. Play as a Fanatic Purifier and shun all diplomacy, become a Hive Mind to avoid political strife or create a multi-species empire born of Syncretic Evolution.

Stellaris is available on Windows PC, Mac, Linux (all via Steam and GOG), PS4, and Xbox One.
