Stellaris is ramping up its warfare options in the forthcoming Apocalypse expansion

Marauders! Titans! Planet-obliterating weapons!

Paradox Interactive has announced Apocalypse, a new full expansion for its spacebound grand strategy game Stellaris that's focussed almost entirely on warfare.

Apocalypse will bring "new levels of warfare and destruction", according to Paradox, and will introduce additional offensive and defensive military options, civic paths, and challenges, as well as the ability to entirely obliterate enemy planets using the new Colossus weapon.

If you're hankering for even more oversized tools to aid your destructive efforts, you'll be able to acquire enormous capital ships known as Titans, which can "lead your fleets to conquest, offering tremendous bonuses to the vessels under their command." It will also be possible to fortify key systems and secure your homeworld with massive orbital installations.

Additionally, Apocalypse sees the arrival of Marauders, space nomads with a fondness for raiding established empires. Paradox says that cunning players might choose to hire Marauders as mercenaries to gain the edge in battle - just hope that they don't turn mutinous.

Last but not least, Apocalypse includes a handful of non-hostile additions, such as new Ascension Perks and Civics, plus new Unity Ambitions.

There's not much more to be said about Stellaris: Apocalypse right now, other than the fact that it's due to release on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs "early 2018".
