Stellaris, the space grand strategy game from Paradox has officially launched on GOG today so more of you can enjoy it.

Of course, all the DLC is also available on GOG so you're not being left out. On top of that, the multiplayer is expanding with a beta now available to support online multiplayer regardless of where you purchased it from which is exactly how it should be done. Great stuff from Paradox for doing that.

Features:

  • Deep and Varied Exploration.
  • Enormous procedural galaxies, containing thousands of planets.
  • Explore Anomalies with your heroic Scientist leaders.
  • Infinitely varied races through customization and procedural generation.
  • Advanced Diplomacy system worthy of a Grand Strategy Game.
  • Ship Designer based on a vast array of technologies.
  • Stunning space visuals.

I'm a massive fan of Stellaris, if that wasn't clear from the many previous articles on it. With the recent updates it has become a much bigger and more interesting game overall. I think they've done a fantastic job at supporting it, not just with DLC content but free updates as well constantly.

Find Stellaris and all the DLC on GOG now if you were waiting for it don't miss out as it's currently 60% off! Also available on Humble Store and Steam still.

Does anyone know if the game gets added to the Paradox Launcher if you buy on GOG? I love the idea of a drm-free version but, with all the updates, I don't fancy struggling with GOG's archaic patching system.

Cool move. Too late for me since i have the game on steam.

Very cool! I have the game on steam but will rebuy it on gog. Totally like this move.

It's a great news! Anyone can confirm that we don't need a Paradox account to play on solo?

IF the Paradox Launcher works now on Linux why don't you buy the game from Paradox itself? Don't think that the Launcher has any form of drm. Personally I'm mostly done with GOG's poor second rate service for Linux users.

Steam version is DRM free already.

If I launch the Steam version of CKII without launching Steam, I don't get access to my DLCs. That isn't drm-free by my measure. Is this game different?

(Edit: I suppose I might just be missing a flag or something to point to my dlcs. Does anyone know if that's the case?)

I can start Stellaris without Steam and get the start menu, where I can de-/select my already installed mods/dlcs. You cannot install/download the dlc/mods from this menu through.

Thanks. Good to know!

This means they're giving up on it. GOG is there Paradox grand strategies go to die. Why do you think CKII and EUIV are not there?
