In Stellaris: First Contact, players will discover an expanded array of events and mechanics for meeting pre-FTL civilizations, as well as new origins focused on being met by post-FTL civilizations. In addition, cloaking technology will appear for the first time in Stellaris, allowing players to hide their ships and posts from their neighbors, and allowing players to worry about what their neighbors may, in turn, be hiding from them.
You are not alone! The galaxy is vast and full of wonders, but it’s also full of alien empires you’re going to encounter, whether you’re ready or not. First Contact offers a set of new origins and mechanics that give players the chance to tell stories about their civilizations’ early encounters with visitors from the stars -- ones that may not have come in peace!
