Paradox games is at it again. Makers of popular games such as Crusader Kings II, they have now turned their eyes towards the future, with the release of Stellaris.
Stellaris [official site] is a sci-fi 4X strategy game set in the stars. The game features all kinds of exploration, procedurally generated worlds and races to interact with and conquer through diplomacy or war.
I'm a sucker for pretty much anything set in space, so I will definitely be adding this to my list very soon.
Stellaris is available on Steam for $39.99.
