Paradox has revealed a new development diary that explores the creation of Stellaris and its science fiction influences.
The studio has mostly made historical strategy games in the past, such as Crusader Kings, which marks Stellaris as their first game taking place in the future, rather than the past. The video features game director Henrick Fåhraeus and others from Paradox, who discuss how they tackled the new setting, and what players can expect.
Stellaris is a strategy game with an emphasis on space exploration. You can build empires or travel to expansive star systems to encounter several different alien species.
Stellaris is expected to release on PC, Mac, and Linux on May 9.
