Stellaris: MegaCorp expansion to release December 6th

By - | Views: 7,081

Have you always wanted to build your own powerful corporate empire? On December 6th you will get that chance.

Paradox have announced the rather large Stellaris: MegaCorp expansion is releasing then, as usual it should come with a hefty free content patch for all players too.

It's a full expansion, not some cosmetic DLC and so it will include:

  • CORPORATE CULTURE - Chief Executive Officers of a MegaCorp can conduct business on a galaxy-wide scale with a host of new civics. By building Branch Offices on planets within empires they have trade agreements with, the MegaCorp can add a portion of the planet’s Trade Value to their own network. Using the new Corporate Authority, construct an economic powerhouse and dominate galactic trade - for a brighter future.
  • CITY WORLD - With Ecumenopolis, players can increase the population density of core worlds to truly epic proportions, eventually creating a planet-spanning megacity. 
  • CARAVANEER FLEETS - Keep an eye out for the Caravaneers, nomadic interstellar wheelers-and-dealers who stay aloof from galactic politics, and always have a bargain up their sleeve. Expect surprises when these master traders wander through your space or when you visit their home systems.
  • MORE MEGASTRUCTURES - Budget has been approved for your own glorious Matter Decompressor, Mega-Art Installation or Strategic Coordination Center to acquire new scaling capabilities for your megalopolis.
  • GALACTIC SLAVE MARKET - Buy and sell pops on an industrial scale, set them free or keep them as livestock. The choice is yours! 
  • VIP STATUS COMES WITH ITS PERKS - Keep your economy competitive in a cutthroat galaxy with additional Ascension perks!

For those that missed the recent DevClash where the team will fight against each other, the first part is up on YouTube. They stream this every week on Twitch, so be sure to subscribe to their official channel for notifications of when they're live for it.

We should be getting a review key as usual, so I should have some thoughts up at release.

You can find Stellaris and the various DLC on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

Quoting: GuestI haven't played Stellaris for a long time. It got pretty repetitive after some time... I'll check some youtube let's plays to see if this shakes things up enough.
What expansions do you have? The main expansions have removed a lot of the repetitive behaviour of the game so far.

Quoting: Guestbase game (30 €)

It's 40 even. There is the "Starter Pack" available on Steam. It's the base game and two expansions. You get a 10% discount on it, which makes it ~70 bucks.

They chose a really horrible name for this bundle. 70 bucks - and that's just the start. Literally.

For those talking about the price, the game is regularly heavily discounted.

I understand feeling that a game (or DLC) is too expensive, but at the same time: Compared to the price of a cinema ticket, for the same price you get a hell of a lot more entertainment from 10 hours of gaming than 2 hours of watching a movie. But that is of course subjective.

Liam, you forgot to mention the regular market, for selling and buying resources.

He is talking about the ingame Galactic Market feature; it allows for players to trade away excess resources to buy in resources they are poor in. Its the 'legal' side of the slave market area :)

I guess discounts mean different things to people, as to me 50% is a pretty big discount.

That's a free patch feature though, the details outlined in the article were just for the DLC :)
