Three DLC set course for 2020, starting with Synthetic Dawn Story Pack launching May 12 for PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One

STOCKHOLM - Apr 27, 2020 - Paradox Interactive today announced a release date for Stellaris: Console Edition’s second expansion pass for PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One. This expansion pass contains three new DLC that will roll out through 2020 to further enrich the empires of ambitious spacefarers with new constructions, cosmetics, weapons, stories, and more. The first to launch is Synthetic Dawn Story Pack, which will release on May 12. A list of the DLC content coming to Stellaris: Console Edition in the second expansion pass in order of release is 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 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.

The second expansion pass for Stellaris: Console Edition will be available for PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One on May 12 at a suggested retail price of $24.99 / £19.99 / €24.99.
