stellaris console edition xbox one

What are you doing this August? Fancy getting yourself involved with the first major expansion for Stellaris: Console Edition? Great, because that is when Utopia will hit!

The much celebrated space strategy experience that is Stellaris will be found getting its first major expansion come August 13th 2019 as Paradox Interactive and Tantalus Media push out Utopia.

This expansion includes new customization features that will allow us to greatly diversify the empire options and to be able to truly create a space nation of our very own. When you consider that Stellaris: Console Edition already runs with some hugely deep strategic gameplay, rich and diverse alien races and emergent storytelling, if you’re looking for something that will put the complexity of the galaxy at your thumbsticks, then this is it – and with the addition of Utopia, it’ll just get better still.

Utopia features include:

  • 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.

We will of course remind you when the Utopia update hits Stellaris: Console Edition on Xbox One but in the meantime, if you are in need of a quick run-down to how the base game works, our full review should be taken in and the Xbox Store should be visited should you wish to make a download.

Oh, and make sure you watch the trailer below too. It’s a good ‘un.
