Stellaris’s new DLC will make you a full-blown feudal space lord next month


The next expansion for sci-fi grand-strategy game Stellaris has a release date — and a new trailer to boot. Overlord will introduce new ways for you to consolidate your intergalactic empire and manage the many peoples under your spacefaring subjugation. It’ll release on May 12.

The main focus of the DLC is its new vassalization options (is that a word?), which will let you more intricately control the roles and freedoms of your galactic subjects. You’ll be able to negotiate or enforce contracts between your vassals, tailoring your empire towards economic, military or technological superiority. The game’s space-age strategy has always had a futuristic feudal flair, but managing squabbling vassals hammers the aspect home even more.
