Stellaris' patch 3.8 launches under the Custodian initiative, whose establishment saw the grand strategy game's development team split into two.
Stellaris Patch 3.8 Release Date
One half focuses on paid expansion content, while another hacks away at ensuing free patches release every 3 months or so.
This, thankfully, gives us a good sense of when the update's release date might occur even prior to an official announcement. To start with, the Canis Minor update went live at the middle of March 2023.
Based on the current amount of time the developer gives itself to work on each update, we expect the Gemini update 3.8 to arrive at some point in late June or early July 2023.
- Stellaris 3.8 update release date: Late June/Early July 2023 (GameWatcher estimation)
Paradox has yet to extensively detail what Stellaris' patch 3.8 introduces in terms of new content, but has provided us a first tease, well ahead of its release date.
Nested tooltips, which will be familiar to Crusader Kings 3 players, are finally making their way into the sci-fi grand strategy game.
Initially, they will only be available in Galaxy Settings, as per the screenshot in this post, but the team behind the game aims to implement them "in Empire Creation and beyond" during the patches in the coming year.
They declutter tooltips while allowing players to gain more information by hovering over specific key words relevant to gameplay.
