Paradox Interactive today announced First Contact, a new story pack coming soon for the sci-fi strategy game Stellaris. In First Contact, you’ll discover an expanded array of events and mechanics to encounter civilizations that aren’t yet capable of superluminal travel. Also, First Contact adds new origins focused on being hit by post-UL civilizations. Additionally, cloaking technology will be available for the first time in Stellaris, allowing players to hide their ships and outposts from their neighbors and worry about what they may be hiding from them.
Nobody is alone! The galaxy is vast and full of wonders, but at the same time it is full of alien empires that you will encounter whether you are ready or not. First Contact features a new set of origins and mechanics, allowing players to tell stories about their civilization’s early encounters with visitors from the stars – including ones that may not have come in peace!
