Trailer score by Jon Everist


  1. Awesome, this games looks soooo good, xcom with giant mechs. Can’t get better than that. After upgrading my laptop will definitely buy it.

  2. Alright April 24th, 3 days before the Avengers! Spring 2018 is looking hella awesome! ??

    Take my ?!

  3. Are we fighting on behalf of House Laio?

  4. Hyped for the game, but the story looks weak.

  5. The majority of the previews dealt with just the game mechanics. I was beginning to worry that the single player campaign was going to be an afterthought. This trailer has me relieved. If the story campaign is even half as good as Dragonfall’s was, I’ll be happy. Can’t wait to play it!

  6. Never forget the 34th rule of Acquisition: “War is good for business!”

  7. stellaris ground unit DLC?

  8. Can’t wait!

  9. I’m more excited for the Mercenary management part than the actual ground combat! Can’t wait!

  10. Whomever designed Khamea deserves like, 3 raises

  11. But do your enemies pay better?


  13. Wait, the release date is my birthday?! Come on universe, at least *pretend* to be subtle!

  14. I am not the “chosen one”, the only one who can save the whole galaxy?
    THANK YOU for a premise that makes sense!
    I am so tired of “you are the chosen one” crap. Mercenary point of view is much more interesting.

  15. I feel that the day in which paradox will produce a warhammer 40k game is getting more and more near.

  16. 30 Harmony Gold fans watching this video as of this post…

  17. I love the look of the Union drop ships in that trailer.

  18. Is this the same Battletech as that age old board game? Cool if it is

  19. “…then let’s talk money.”

    NOW you’ve got my attention. These machines don’t come cheep ya’ know.

  20. ‘Bout damn time….. looking forward to fighting in the…. 3rd succession war? is that the time period?
