New Expansion Released alongside Free Content Update for Celebrated Sci-Fi Strategy Game

Developers and Publishers Paradox Interactive have announced the release of Overlord today, a full expansion for Stellaris.

Overlord is centered around a whole heap of new empire management features, which i’ll go further into below. The new expansion adds a series of new mechanics to Stellaris, which grants more control, more choice to aspiring megalomaniacs. Unprecedented levels of control await you, from powerful megastructures to construct, to deeper, more in-depth interactions with your vassal systems.

Some of the new features of Stellaris: Overlord include the following:

  • Rulers Make the Rules:
    New vassalization mechanics allow you to define the roles of your subjugated systems and subjects. Create new, Specialist Empires to grow into economic superpowers, military specialists, and technological creators. Negotiate with them. Demand from them. Control your vast empire with more control than ever before.
  • Five New Origins to Lord Over:
    • Imperial Fiefdom – You may be just a Specialist Empire now, but some day, the galaxy may need a new ruler… don’t leave any doubt that it will be you.
    • Slingshot to the Stars – The ruined remains of a Quantum Catapult have been discovered near your homeworld – what secrets might it unlock if your people are clever enough to bring it back online?
    • Subterranean – Your species adapted to life underground, excelling in mining and archaeology. Now it’s time to see what awaits you far, far above the surface!
    • Teachers of the Shroud – Developing in contact with the curious Psions known as the Shroudwalkers, your species, your empire has learned a thing or two about expanding their minds. Perhaps you can use this in your conquest of the galaxy.
    • Progenitor Hive – Under your leadership, this hivemind empire can achieve more than ever before… but without your guidance, the hive will fall to ruin!
  • Engineer the Future and Showcase Your Power:
    New feats of technology will give your empire the edge it needs to become the dominant force across the galaxy. 
    • Orbital Rings will elevate your influence and power in a system in epic displays of power from your planets further into space.
    • Hyper Relays will give your fleets the ability to enforce your will across the stars faster than ever before. Reinforce your fleets and overwhelm your enemies.
    • Quantum Catapults enable new ways to react quicker in the galaxy while projecting your might – but it’s a daring one-way trip for your fleet! Make sure it’s the right decision to make.
