We’re a week out from the release of Stellaris’ Star Wars expansion, Nemesis, and the development team has just released the patch notes for both the DLC pack and the free update that will launch alongside it - 3.0 ‘Dick’. It’s worth reading the patch notes in full, especially as it sets out clearly what you’ll need to pay for in the expansion, versus what you get for free.

Finally had enough of those pesky neighbouring empires in Stellaris and dreaming of a way to give them the ultimate comeuppance? Then you might be intrigued by the sci-fi strategy game's next expansion, Nemesis, which finally gives players the ability to embrace their inner evil, rise up, and wipe the entire galaxy clean off the map. Nemesis takes a familiar Stellaris end-game mechanic - in which the galaxy is plunged into crisis by invading AI forces who'll either perish in bloody battle or eradicate all known life - and switches it up so that players can become the source of the crisis themselves. To reach that point, however, players will need to perform nefarious deeds and accrue Menace.

Stellaris’ espionage rework will let you run a network of Star Wars Bothan spies
The Stellaris devs at Paradox Development Studio have been talking about the upcoming (and officially unannounced) 2.9 patch over the past couple of months, with more recent dev diaries looking at the upcoming revamp of espionage mechanics. Stellaris is an excellent grand strategy game, a pretty decent 4X game, and one of our favourite space games, but sneaking around and gathering intelligence on other space-faring races isn’t something it’s managed to really cover do well. At the start of December, we got a glimpse at the basic mechanics of gathering intel.

Stellaris 2.8 ‘Butler’ patch notes – everything you need to know!
Ahead of the release of the Necroids Species Pack next Thursday, the Stellaris development team have today published their notes for the accompanying free update to this sci-fi grand strategy epic - patch 2.8 ‘Butler’. As this next bit of Stellaris DLC is relatively minor in terms of the content you’re paying for (essentially a new origin and three new civics, plus cosmetics) the ‘free’ stuff that’s coming in the patch is equally as modest, with the majority of the update being focused on bug fixes. In terms of actual new features, from next week you’ll have access to new gestalt governor traits titled ‘amplifier’ and ‘mindfulness’.
