0

The next bigger patch following the Apocalypse dlc release. They’ve done bugfixes, balance tweaks and added some new features, as you’ll see in the changelog below. Please note that save game compatibility with earlier versions is not 100% guaranteed, and some fixes listed above may only work with a new game. If you are in an important game that you want to finish and the new version interferes with that in some way, you can roll back to a previous version like this:

Steam library -> Right click on Stellaris -> Properties -> Betas tab -> select the version you want to roll back to.

When you’re done, just opt out of beta programs and you’ll auto-update to the latest official version. Have fun playing!

If you are new to Stellaris follow this link to find out more about the game. A Stellaris livestream happens every Sunday at Twitch.
