    A much-needed expansion that sures up the shallowness of the empire building and management. Utopia adds great depth and new layers of progression that make building your interstellar empire a much more unique and enjoyable experience.

    Stellaris: Utopia makes Stellaris a better experience for anyone: fans and detractors.

    Paradox’s biggest expansion yet brings Stellaris closer to its original promise with a stellar rework of internal politics and new endgame goals.

    If you’re an existing Stellaris player, the Utopia expansion opens up a bunch of options that didn’t exist before and is well worth the investment. If you haven’t jumped on the stellar bandwagon yet – there’s no better time. Stellaris is a very strong space strategy game that has flown a bit under the radar, and anyone who enjoys games like Civilization or Masters of Orion will likely be quite taken by Stellaris.

    Utopia brings a whole new depth to Stellaris with its mega constructions, traditions and the new political system.

    Utopia has given me plenty of reason to go back out into the far reaches of space, so much so that I now fear for the prosperity of my social life. With so many enticing updates rolled into Utopia and the Banks update, there’s even more to make me say “let me just do one more thing,” until it’s 4 a.m. and I’m out of luck. Thanks Paradox.

    In tandem, the (free) Banks 1.5 update and Utopia contribute a splendid set of features and mechanical changes to Stellaris. Taken alone, Utopia is more the luxury trimmings to Banks’ essentials, but it’s a fine package of unique species specialisation and mega-engineering all the same.

Ascension perks are game changers. They offer substantial change to gameplay and a lot of rp potential. Civics are great and offer a bit diffrent start. Hive minds are basic but they are worth one campagin. The price is bit high but with frequent sales its pretty fair. Expand

The game still gets repetitive rather quickly and becomes dull. Hopefully the next expansion adds something to make the story component of events feel better. Also hopefully there will be some UI improvements as the current setup hides the important knobs and displays the mid importance ones. Lots of potential still and forward progress. Expand
