Leviathans release date for Stellaris expansion

Paradox Interactive today #announced the release date and retail price for Leviathans, the upcoming Story Pack for their critically acclaimed #strategy #game Stellaris.  Featuring a host of new content such as Guardians, Enclaves, and the fearsome “War in Heaven”,  the first Story Pack to be released for one of 2016’s biggest strategy hits.  Leviathans will be available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC, priced at $9.99 or local equivalent.

Features of Leviathans include:

  • Guardians: Powerful space entities with mysterious origins and motives. Fight or investigate them to unlock technologies and gain access to great treasures.
  • Enclaves: Independent outposts of traders and artists who are willing to make a deal. Exchange resources, purchase information about the galaxy, or commission a great work of art for your empire.
  • War In Heaven: What happens to your fledgling empire if two ancient Fallen Empires decide to renew old grievances in a War in Heaven?  Will you err on the side of caution and take a side with the stronger power, or will you strike at both whilst they are occupied with their own titanic struggle?

Coupled with the upcoming release will be the traditional free update, dubbed “Heinlein”.  Containing upgrades and improvements for all players, just some of the highlights include:

  • A convenient Auto-Explore feature.
  • Rally points for your freshly-assembled Navy.
  • The Expansion Planner Interface.
  • An overhaul of Strategic Resources.
  • Clearer specialization/role for ship types.
  • More options for customizing new galaxies.
  • New smarter Sector Governors.

For more information on either Leviathans or the Heinlein patch Paradox Development Studio releases regular developer diaries on their forums.
