Stellaris Megacorp DLC Expansion Announced! Time to Make Some Real Money!

Stellaris Megacorp DLC Expansion Announced! Time to Make Some Real Money!

Paradox Interactive announced Megacorp, a brand new DLC expansion for the galactic grand strategy game, Stellaris. Megacorp will be released together with the free Le Guin 2.2 update which I’ve written about over here. When will it be released?

Unfortunately, they couldn’t announce a date for the DLC or patch 2.2. The big thing with Megacorp is the ability of opening up branch ofices on planets that have trade agreement with you. You’ll get a portion of the planet’s trade value which sounds like it’s leaning towards the Europa Universalis trade mechanic… the basics of it.

There are also a new neutral faction called the Caravaneers who travel the galaxy giving a good bargain to any empire they come knocking on their galactic doors.

Highlighted Features:

CORPORATE CULTURE
Chief Executive Officers of a MegaCorp can conduct business on a galaxy-wide scale with a host of new civics. By building Branch Offices on planets within empires they have trade agreements with, the MegaCorp can add a portion of the planet’s Trade Value to their own network. Using the new Corporate Authority, construct an economic powerhouse and dominate galactic trade - for a brighter future.

CITY WORLD
With Ecumenopolis, players can increase the population density of core worlds to truly epic proportions, eventually creating a planet-spanning megacity. 

CARAVANEER FLEETS
Keep an eye out for the Caravaneers, nomadic interstellar wheelers-and-dealers who stay aloof from galactic politics, and always have a bargain up their sleeve. Expect surprises when these master traders wander through your space or when you visit their home systems.

MORE MEGASTRUCTURES
Budget has been approved for your own glorious Matter Decompressor, Mega-Art Installation or Strategic Coordination Center to acquire new scaling capabilities for your megalopolis.

GALATIC SLAVE MARKET
Buy and sell pops on an industrial scale, set them free or keep them as livestock. The choice is yours! 

VIP STATUS COMES WITH ITS PERKS
Keep your economy competitive in a cutthroat galaxy with additional Ascension perks!

Megacorp is available for pre-orders on the Paradox Store for USD$19.99. If you want to hop into Stellaris, you can purchase the base game from the Humble Store here.
