Stellaris: Horizon Signal (2016)

About This Game

A signal in distant space is calling out to your empire. What does this entity want, and how does it know who you are?

Horizon Signal is a new and rich storyline written by Alexis Kennedy, a British writer best known for his work at Failbetter Games, which he co-founded. His writing for Sunless Sea and Fallen London has been widely acclaimed, and now he is scribing new stories for Stellaris.

This story update is a free DLC for Stellaris and highlights one of the great strengths of the game – its ability to tell stories that entertain and entrance without distracting you from the core strategic gameplay. The DLC consists of a somewhat rare event chain that can potentially be triggered at any time in your game. Even if you are playing a save that was started before installing Horizon Signal, the event chain can still occur in your game.

THAT’S NO MOON, NEITHER IS THAT ONE, THAT ONE MIGHT BE A MOON, WAIT, NO
Keep the local systems in line with fear of the new “Colossus” planet-killer weapon – a technological terror that eliminates entire worlds from the universe

ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO YOU
New enormous “Titan” capital ships can lead your fleets to conquest, offering tremendous bonuses to the vessels under their command. Meanwhile, fortify key systems with massive orbital installations and secure your homeworld as an impenetrable bastion among the stars.

PIRATES OF THE CONSTELLATION
Watch out for Marauders – space nomads who raid settled empires and carve out their lives on the fringe of civilization. Hire them as mercenaries in your own conflicts, but take care that they don’t unify and trigger a new mid-game crisis!

SOME NON-VIOLENT FEATURES
New Ascension Perks and Civics are added in the expansion, along with new Unity Ambitions that provide new ways to spend Unity and customize your development.

SOUNDS OF DESTRUCTION
To accompany your planet-shattering expedition, three new musical pieces have been composed by Andreas Waldetoft for your listening pleasure.
