Second Stellaris: Console Edition Expansion Pass Releases May 12

Stellaris: Console Edition

Paradox Interactive have announced the next round of DLC for Stellaris: Console Edition, via Expansion Pass Season 2.

The second expansion pass includes three pieces of DLC that have already been released for the PC version. The first of these expansions, the Synthetic Dawn Story Pack, launches on May 12th. The paid content will coincide with the free 2.2 update.

“Starting with Synthetic Dawn, players will have an all-new way of establishing their empire across the stars,” Paradox Interactive explain. “Starting as a machine empire — a race of robots — players will explore new story events and have unique mechanics that will allow them to spread their robot consciousness across the galaxy.”

The other two expansions included are the Apocalypse Expansion and the Humanoid Species Pack, both of which will be released later in 2020. You can find the announcement trailer below.

The second expansion pass will cost $24.99.

You can find a rundown of the new content (via YouTube) below:

Synthetic Dawn Story Pack: provides an all-new way for players to establish their empire across the stars, starting the game as a Machine Empire — a society made up entirely of robots. Unique game features and event chains will allow the machines to expand as a robotic consciousness, and create an AI-led network that grows to galactic dominance. Launches on May 12, 2020.

Apocalypse Expansion: Redefine stellar warfare with a host of new offensive and defensive options. Destroy entire worlds with terrifying new planet-killer weapons, fight against (or alongside) ruthless space pirates, and maybe discover a few non-violent game features as well. Launches in 2020.

Humanoids Species Pack: Features a selection of new portraits and ship models for players who wish to forge their path among the stars as the irrepressible human race – or at least as a species that resembles humans to some degree. Launches in 2020.

Stellaris: Console Edition is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Stellaris is available on Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via GOG, and Steam).
