Features:
The Blorg Stream summarizes all features pretty well and it's also a lot of fun.

I tend to enjoy most Paradox games so I picked Stellaris up on friday. I'm really enjoying it so far, it's strayed from Paradox's usual historical theme and I think this will allow for some really interesting DLCs/Updates seeing as they're no longer bound by the annals of history.

My empire of space fascists is growing quite nicely, can't bring myself to choose any race other than human for some deep instinctual reason.

Yeah it's really cool and we're playing multiplayer games me and 15 friends on scheduled times. Next time we start I'd be happy to invite those here who feel they want to come.

Are space battles like in Star Wars Empire at War or mostly AI controlled?

Unfortunately the battles are "auto-resolved" meaning you can only see the space ships fighting each other.
The charm of this game is mostly colonizing, events, diplomacy (especially with a lot of players there's bound to be a lot of fun diplomacy) and internal management of your empire such as assigning populations to different tasks and managing your buildings and fleet compositions.

Paradox is known for adding a lot of content to their games though and it is likely in a year with all the DLCs that will have been released that the game will look nothing like what it looks like today.

Bump out of interest because I was close to making my own thread before seeing this.

I want to use my religious communist birds in multiplayer for once. :(

I'm all up for a big MP game. Then my beautiful Xe'thrans can finally show their scientific superiority.

I'd be up for hosting after the new unannounced dlc, I just personally think the game is shallow atm compared to hoi or eu :)
