Developer and publisher Paradox Interactive recently revealed the next expansion for Stellaris: Overlord. Overlord will give players access to new features focused on more complex management of their intergalactic empires, from specialized minions to powerful new megastructures. This is what the official announcement about the strategy game content update says.
Players can use these new features to bring order and glory to the galaxy, or bring it to its knees. Overlord will be available soon for the PC version of Stellaris and will be released together with the free update 3.4 “Cepheus” for Stellaris. This update includes new content and customization for all players and is part of the Custodian team’s ongoing effort to continually improve Stellaris.
In Overlord, ambitious leaders will unlock a new level of empire management and carry out their grand plans for the universe. Specialized minion roles allow players to take the planets of their realm to unprecedented heights of glory or keep them in check.
The new enclaves will offer unprecedented opportunities and challenges. A selection of novel megastructures will provide alternatives to spread power further and faster. Five all-new origins, new music, and more features will be included when Overlord launches later this year.

Stephen Muray, Stellaris Game Director at Paradox Development Studio:
“The stories our players have told about Stellaris over the past six years never cease to amaze us. We have seen empires rise and fall, coalesce and collapse, and openly and covertly collide with their galactic neighbors. With Overlord, we want to give players more options and possibilities to create their own ‘space operas’, build a universe full of great houses or squabbling minions, and see how long they can hold power over what they’ve created. More details on what it means to be a Galactic Overlord will be announced soon!”
