Do you want your name among the stars? It might be easier than you thought, thanks to Paradox… just pre-order sci-fi strategy game Stellaris, and you’ll be given the opportunity to have your name literally shot into the earth’s stratosphere.
Stellaris promises procedurally-generated galaxies containing thousands of planets for you to explore, as you forge your own galactic empire. Will you walk the path of diplomacy, or turn to violence to stake your claim?
The in-game races are “infinitely varied” through procedural generation and customisations, the ship designer draws on a vast array of technologies, and you can rely on heroic Scientist leaders to explore interstellar anomalies. Plus, the icing on the cake? Stellaris looks stunning.
Interested? The Stellaris pre-order package is pretty impressive, and just US$39.99 for a Steam code:
- Creatures of the Void (Cosmetic DLC)
Five additional alien races exclusive to pre-order customers, each inspired by design suggestions from the community. These dark, creepy, and twisted creatures include: Hydra/Xenomorph, Evil Porcupine, Dinosaur Bird, Shadowy Anthropoid and Fungoid Infected Mammalian, with which to populate the galaxy.
- Ringtones and Message Alert Sounds
Get the stirring Stellaris theme as composed by Andreas Waldetoft as your ringtone, and receive communications from across time and space! Also includes 5 sound effects from Stellaris suitable for text messages and alerts.
- Blorg Forum Avatar:
Become an official Spacefriend of Blorg.
- Send Your Name into (almost) Space
We will literally take your name and launch it into the upper stratosphere on a weather balloon, and we´ll film the whole thing! Some day, extraterrestrial life may know that you dared to reach out to them! Must have a Paradox Account linked to your Steam Account to have your name included; must link accounts before June 1, 2016 to qualify.
Almost all of these pre-order bonuses will be delivered on May 9, when Stellaris is released for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. The exception is the Creatures of the Void content, which is currently still in production.
