Stellaris: Utopia Review

8.6 Total Score

Build a Better Space Empire in Stellaris: Utopia. Is it not the dream of every space colonist to travel out into the great beyond, meet new exciting alien races and then eat them? With Utopia, now you can. The DLC mixes a solid bunch of changes between minor things with massive impacts, and massive things with even bigger impacts while expanding both the depth of running your empire and the way you build your race to the endgame. It also makes unique playstyles much better, and they actually feel different each time, with the ability to properly play as a robot population, or to become a Hivemind where you can assimilate the galaxy, or just have a totally unique playstyle. Builds upon old mechanics and improves them in almost every way. I highly recommend this expansion!
