'Stellaris: Console Edition' (ALL) Gets Humanoids and Apocalypse DLC Later This Month

by Rainier on June 6, 2020 @ 2:53 a.m. PDT

Stellaris: Console Edition turns your eyes to the stars in a science fiction strategy game that will be about more than just building empires in the skies.

For millennia our race has developed, explored and battled for control of a planet. Now we turn our eyes beyond our own solar system, to other stars in our galaxy. New planets, new discoveries, maybe even new civilizations await us. And Paradox Development Studio, the masters of grand strategy, will be your guides on this new voyage.

With a dynamic decision system and a heavy emphasis on exploration and science teams, Stellaris gives you much more to research than bigger lasers or stronger hulls – though you’ll need those too. Space is very big, and your first step will be getting a grasp of just what is around you and how it can be best used for the benefit of your civilization.

The Humanoids and Apocalypse expansions will release June 25th on Xbox One/PS4, and complete Expansion Pass Two for Stellaris: Console Edition.

Apocalypse Expansion

One of Stellaris’ biggest ever expansions, Apocalypse changes the nature of warfare with a “Colossus” planet-killer weapon, “Titan” capital ships, and defensive orbital installations. Not to mention Marauders, space pirates who will fight with or against you for the right price. The expansion also adds the ability to start on life-seeded Gaia worlds and post-apocalyptic Tomb worlds, to complete your species’ backstory.

Humanoids Species Pack

This species pack adds new cosmetic options for the most popular phenotype, humanoids. This includes new portraits, hairstyles, music, and a new humanoid ship set.

Thousands of planets populate procedurally generated star systems giving you the largest possible theatre for performing the emergent stories that Paradox has become famous for. Customize your ships, encounter unique randomly generated races, and participate in advanced diplomacy that would make Picard look like an amateur.

And all in a beautiful and evocative star map unmatched by anything we’ve made before.

  • Behold the enormity of space with procedurally generated galaxies and an untold number of planets to explore.
  • Encounter a myriad of wild, quirky, and dangerous alien races who may prove to be crucial trade partners or conquering forces hellbent on enslaving your civilization.
  • Take on strategic space warfare and resource management to ensure the survival and advancement of your empire.
  • Explore scientific anomalies and uncover technological wonders throughout the galaxy to utilize them toward your own gains.
  • Govern your own fledgling empire and secure your power and agenda through manipulating internal policies, factions, traditions and more.

Stellaris is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
