If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and the galactic conquest sounds like a good time, you’ll be pleased to know that StellarisParadox’s sci-fi grand strategy epic is free to play Steam for the next three days.
The free weekend is in celebration of the sixth anniversary of Stellaris, which arrived on Steam on May 9, 2016. But like many Paradox games, it has continued to grow since then with the release of content packs and expansions, the latest of which—Overlord—was just released earlier this month. And apparently it’s pretty good: our head of grand strategy, online editor Fraser Brown, who said the expansion introduced his new origin of favorite species, Imperial Fief. Not sure what this is, but it definitely looks like something that belongs in a Paradox game.
If you enjoy your experience as a potential Kang the Conqueror, this is also a good time to make your ownership status permanent. Stellaris is on sale on Steam at 80% off – that’s $7 / £8 / €7 – and the Starter Pack, Ultimate Bundle and the whole damn Paradox Grand Strategy Collection are also ticked. The Stellaris Free Weekend is now available and runs until May 23.
