Paradox Interactive, the game company that isn’t afraid to push the limits of intergalactic diplomacy, has released Federations, the newest expansion to sci-fi grand strategy title Stellaris. This expansion focuses on the galactic community and its internal politics, offering expanded capabilities for federations and the establishment of a powerful galactic senate. Aspiring legislators now have the chance to showcase their political prowess on an astronomical level. Stellaris: Federations is now available for PC platforms at a suggested retail price of $19.99 / €19.99 / £15.49.
Federations is now available at the below platforms and will be available later today on the Microsoft Store:
Federations features include:
- Expanded Federations: With expanded diplomacy capabilities, players can build up the internal cohesion of their federations and unlock powerful rewards for all members. Whether you join a Trade League, Martial Alliance, or Hegemony, membership can be extremely advantageous.
- Galactic Community: Unite the space empires with a galactic senate that can vote on a wide range of resolutions to drive legislative agendas. For example, players can pass a resolution to increase commitments to collective defense or funnel profit towards wealthy elites. Members can also sanction those who defy the community and enact a single galactic focus. Sway the senate to position yourself as a leader, trading favours and manoeuvring, doing whatever it takes to gain influence among schemers.
- Origins: Each empire has a story that shapes its path. Give your civilization deeper roots with the new system of Origins. By choosing an Origin, players can flesh out their empire’s background and alter its starting conditions. Whether it’s Void Dwellers who have abandoned their homeworld to live in perpetual orbit or a society that worships and protects a powerful Tree of Life, you can lay the groundwork wisely for the seeds of your empire.
- New Constructions: Construct glorious new projects for your empire like the Juggernaut, a massive mobile starbase that provides a movable repair base even in enemy territory, or the Mega Shipyard, a new megastructure that can churn out fleets with incredible speed. Offering both tactical advantages and a good dose of shock and/or awe, these are sure to be an asset to any space empire.
