Paradox Interactive today released a major Lem update for the PC version of Stellaris (Away 35,99€ in to buy). This free expansion adds new content to both the original game and its many expansions. The base game of Stellaris will be free to play all weekend.
“Our inspiration comes from many different sources, whether it’s the work of science fiction authors from around the world or our own ideas from the past. We keep finding new stories we want to tell with Stellaris,” says Daniel Moregaard, Director of Stellaris Games. “This patch gave us a unique opportunity: This year marks the centenary of the birth of Stanislaw Lem, the Polish science fiction writer whose stories have been a great inspiration to the Stellaris team. In addition to some direct references to Lem’s in-game work for watchers and fans, Lem’s update brings the content he enjoyed Our fans throughout the history of Stellaris.”
