Paradox Interactive has revealed that its previously announced PS4 and Xbox One edition of interstellar grand strategy game Stellaris will arrive on February 26th.
Stellaris originally launched on PC back in 2016 and, despite a few structural wobbles, was generally well received. Since then, its expansive take on intergalactic empire management – which is rather handily summarised in the Stellaris: Console Edition trailer below – has undergone some major changes, tidying up its flabby midsection, dramatically altering movement (and thus game flow) through the galaxy, and much more.
From what I can tell, however, Stellaris looks to be coming to consoles in its Version 1.8 guise – meaning that it will be free of the rather seismic (and somewhat controversial) changes introduced on PC in Version 2.0. Paradox has also confirmed plans to support the console edition with its usual deluge of post-launch DLC – which, on PC, has so far expanded the game’s story elements, its economy systems, plus its warfare options, among many other things.
