Paradox Interactive has released a new story trailer for Stellaris Apocalypse, the strategy game’s latest expansion.

While this trailer doesn’t provide any further details about the content of the expansion, it is well-made and worth a watch. It’s very dramatic.

The trailer shows us Earth in its final moments as it is destroyed by one of the new Colossus ships introduced in the expansion. This usage of the new Planet Buster is quite chilling and touching. It is an interesting choice that stands in contrast to the often less personal nature of the gameplay in Stellaris.

In the midst of all that drama, we do get one vital piece of information. At the very end of the video, we finally learn the expansion’s release date. Check it out.

Stellaris Apocalypse DLC will be released on February 22, 2018.
