Stellaris celebrates three years in space with a sale & trial weekend

Stellaris, the sprawling and much-expanded 4X space strategy game by Paradox, is free to try out from now until Sunday, May 12th. If you like it, you can snap it up for cheap.

Stellaris’s Apocalypse DLC will blow you away on Feb 22

Though the galaxy of Stellaris is filled with traces of strange and terrible events, we don't really leave our own mark in extravagant ways. That will change a little with the launch of the sci-fi 4X strategy game's planet-destroying Apocalypse expansion, which Paradox today announced they will release on February 22nd.

Stellaris: Apocalypse will let you kill planets

Too many worlds. That's the problem with space. You develop interstellar flight and hope to find a big emptiness that you can coast around in until all of the stars fade to black, but there's all this stuff scattered about. Planets and asteroid belts and big alien jellysquids. Stellaris's upcoming expansion, Apocalypse, will let you clear out some of the clutter. It brings planet-destroying weapons…
