It’s time to hit the open seas as Stellaris sees the arrival of the Aquatics Species Pack. It’s set to give everyone cool new fishy cosmetics, origins, and civic. The new pack is priced at $9.99 and can be purchased at Steam, GOG, and the Microsoft Store.

The game also sees the release of the free 3.2 “Herbert” update. Named after celebrated science fiction author Frank Herbert, it buffs the Humanoids Species Pack expansion with the Pompous Purists Civic. There are also some changes to the base game like the improved ship browser, a greater variety of anomalies, and AI behavioral changes.
