Stellaris: Galaxy Command is the newest offering from developer Paradox Interactive, and as its title suggests, the game will be set in the Stellaris universe. This sci-fi-themed, multiplayer strategy title will be available for both Android and iOS, with a beta already open in Canada, Australia, Sweden, and New Zealand. Check out its trailer below:

The game takes place in a universe ravaged by an interdimensional invasion. It is now up to those who survived to rebuild civilization to the best of their abilities. You will have your own orbital space station in this vast galaxy, but if you want to succeed, you’ll need to forge alliances with others.

As you might expect from a strategy game, there’s a strong focus on building things here.  Throughout the game, you’ll manage and gradually expand your station, researching new technologies further assist you with your cause.

Naturally, you will also get to build a formidable fleet to crush those who stand in your way. Once again, the researching aspect plays an important role here, as it allows you to unlock new weapons to equip to your ships. Of course, you can always join forces with your allies to conquer the galaxy together.

Stellaris Galaxy Command
A pretty standard multiplayer strategy title

All of that sounds pretty standard so far, but Stellaris: Galaxy Command does add a new, unique mechanic into the mix with the ethics system. By the look of things, ethics will be information shown publicly on your profile, and your in-game action will have an impact on this. This potentially means if you commit immoral actions such as killing innocent people, you’ll become infamous. Maybe a bounty will be placed on your head. Let’s wait and see how things turn out.

You'll get to build your own space station, and there is allegedly an ethics system

A beta version of Stellaris: Galaxy Command is already accessible to players living in Canada, Australia, Sweden, and New Zealand. If you are not from one of those countries, the game is also up for pre-registration on both Google Play and the App Store. It is a free-to-play title with IAPs.
