Stellaris is a sci-fi grand strategy game set 200 years into the future. The expansion Stellaris: Apocalypse redefines stellar warfare for all players with a host of new offensive and defensive options. Destroy entire worlds with terrifying new planet-killer weapons, fight against (or alongside) ruthless space pirates, and maybe discover a few non-violent game features as well. The expansion focused, among other things, on highlighting different aspects of space warfare and new features such as a planet-killer ship, new Ion cannons, and Titan class ships. We wanted to create an engaging story that would emotionally resonate with the players, so we created a female fighter jet pilot who leaves a message to her young son before she makes a last desperate attempt of trying to save him and her home planet against an enemy that proves to be too powerful.
