Global strategies such as Civilization or Crusader Kings are considered the prerogative of the PC because they are full of all menus, labels and other controls that require a mouse cursor. But Paradox Interactive felt that console gamers also want to feel great rulers, and announced Stellaris: Console Edition.
As the publisher assures, Stellaris will become the first full-fledged representative of the genre on consoles. Console Edition is based on the version 1.7 “Bradbury”, which was released on the PC in May-June 2017. For comparison: the current patch on computers at the moment is 2.1.2. Porting deals with Tantalus Media, a developer of console options Cities: Skylines. Stellaris: Console Edition will have two versions: standard and deluxe. In the deluxe is included additions Plantoids Species Pack, Leviathans Story Pack and Utopia Expansion.
Stellaris: Console Edition will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Instead of the release date – a vague “soon.”
