Stellaris Update 2.7.2 Beta Patch Notes

Developer Paradox Interactive has released a new update for Stellaris. The new update carries patch version 2.7.2 which aims to address bugs and issues in the game.

Currently, the new Stellaris update 2.7.2 is only available in the beta branch which means that it still needs to be tested before pushing it the main game. The developer has set up a beta branch on Steam which you can access by going the Stellaris properties on the Steam app. Look for the betas tab and select Stellaris_test branch.

For those who are planning to try the new update in the beta branch, it is highly not recommended to save important game progress in the beta branch. According to the developer, never try to load game saves from version 2.7.1 in the beta branch.

To learn more about the changes implemented in this update, make sure to read the release notes below.

Stellaris Update 2.7.2 Patch Notes

Stability and Performance

  • Crash fix related to animated GUIs.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed _grey_grey_grey_grey… Text.

  • Fixed so that a smaller type of the same threat pops up if it’s early in the game.
  • Fixed a case where the Great Khan could be both dead and not dead at the same time.
