Stellaris release date on PC, MAC and Linux is set for May 9, be ready to explore a “vast galaxy full of wonder.” Stellaris is being developed by Paradox Development Studio.

The same studio was behind some other popular strategy games like Crusader Kings and Europa Universalis. They have the right expertise needed to develop a memorable, well-made stretagy game for PC.

Stellaris is being described as an evolution of the strategy genre with space exploration at its core. A vast range of playable alien races would be at your disposal. With emergent storytelling and deeply strategic gameplay, Stellaris looks highly enticing so far.

The game supports a deeply challenging system that rewards interstellar explorers as they traverse, interact, discover, and learn more about the plethora of species during their travels.

Stellaris features “Anomaly Events,” that are triggered upon a notable discovery that offers emergent storytelling. The galaxy you roam is procedurally generated, meaning there are thousands of unexplored grounds.

Each specie in the game comes with its own traits, attributes and engineering style. You will also come across non-playable “Unique Random Species.”

Getting to know each specie and using Stellaris’ advanced diplomacy system is key to success and progress in the game.

Spaceships in the game can be customized, even civilian ships. Stellaris is both a singleplayer and multiplayer game with support for up to 32 players for online play.

As I mentioned, the game will release for PC, MAC and Linux. Below are the specs needed to run the game on each platform.
