Stellaris, which just launched this week, is Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy take on space opera. It’s an epic 4X game that takes your species from first leaving its home world to spreading across the galaxy. Paradox has earned a devoted following for its elaborate historical simulations, but this is the studio’s first foray into science fiction. The game has received a largely glowing critical reception and is the studio’s fastest-selling game to date.
