Stellaris is currently free on Steam

Released in 2016, Stellaris is a must-have for all fans of strategy games. Although the game has just turned four, it hasn't aged a bit. Indeed, during these years, Stellaris has been enriched with many DLCs that integrate a variety of additional content, the latest being Federations. But make no mistake, because that does not mean that the basic game lacks content. It's pretty much the opposite and each part will ask you for a few hours of play.

You can try it yourself if you have never played it before. To celebrate the 4 years of the game, Paradox has decided to offer a free trial period for Stellaris on Steam. From now until Sunday, May 17, you can enjoy the full content of the base game for free, without any restrictions. You just need to go to the Stellaris page on Steam to start the download.



In Stellaris, you start in 2200 on a single planet and with only a small fleet of ships. You will have to explore your solar system first, in order to find resources to develop your civilization. As you expand through the galaxy, you will meet other alien races and interact with them in various ways. You can forge alliances or declare war on them for example. Your ultimate goal is to create a galactic empire.

In parallel, Stellaris is receiving today a new free update that adds new functionalities and comes to make certain adjustments. You can view the full patch notes on this address.


If you want to take advantage of this free trial, don't hang around and head to Steam now. If at the end of this offer you have enjoyed your experience and you want to continue your space conquest, you will find Stellaris at the best price on our comparator.
