Interesting development, esp if they follow the Paradox model for DLC,to me it bodes well for the future of Battletech!

Check this out:

As a token to welcome all fans of Harebrained Schemes to the Paradox family, Paradox will give a complimentary copy of Stellaris, the sci-fi grand strategy game from Paradox Development Studio, to every player who backed BATTLETECH on Kickstarter. For further details on this new arrangement, Wester and Weisman will appear on a live-streamed presentation and Q&A session in the near future on the Paradox Interactive Twitch channel, found at https://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive.

Interesting! I wonder if I can swap/trade/sell that copy for something else?

Yeah same here. Nice gesture on their part though.

I've come so close to buying Stellaris before when it was on sale, but didn't pull the trigger on it. I don't get into the large scale management political/resource finding games as much as I would like when I buy them. Free however...not bad, so I'm glad to give it a go if this happens. Certainly a popular game.
Should be a positive development so far.

Stellaris is now on your backer goodies page if you were a contributor. Steam key, so I guess you can do what you want with it. I’ve been looking forward to trying this out.

I was a hair's breath from buying this, I'm glad I waited.

Oh, I thought you meant BattleTech. Does anyone know if you can sell/gift your version of Solaris?

I would think if you gave someone your access code then you either sold or gifted it, no?

It's just a steam code, do what you want with it. Whoever uses it is just going to "activate a game on steam". It isn't a purchase, so you can't gift it through steam directly.
