Paradox Interactive has announced that it is bringing grand strategy to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with Stellaris: Console Edition.
“Whether you’re exploring the unknown, discovering the mysteries of the universe, or conquering it for the glory of your empire, console players have more inter-galactic strategy awaiting them than ever before,” the publisher writes.
The console port is being handled by Tantalus Media, the developer behind the console release of Cities: Skylines.
“Grand Strategy is often considered a niche genre even on the PC, but we believe that while a console audience exists, a game like Stellaris simply hasn’t made it to those platforms yet. With the help of Tantalus’ expertise, we’re happy to take that leap,” Daniel Moregård, Game Director at Paradox Interactive, said. “Console players can look forward to the true Grand Strategy experience and continued DLC and support after launch with Stellaris: Console Edition.”
A Deluxe Edition of the game is available to pre-order now that includes the Plantoids Species Pack, Leviathans Story Pack, and the Utopia Expansion.
A release date for Stellaris: Console Edition has not been announced.
