Two Additional Packs

Plates can also get the fourth expansion pass, priced at $24.99, which has Federations, Ancient Relics Story Pack, and the Necroids Species Pack.

In the Ancient Relics Story Pack, players are taken to Relic Worlds and learn more about long-dead civilizations to discover their rise and downfall. To get to the truth, players have to dig up derelict ships and cities. Along the way, they get to discover powerful relics that they can use for their own.

Meanwhile, the Necroids Species Pack is about the species known as Necroids. Highly intelligent, they believe that death is simply the start of the journey. This pack offers a new selection of ships, civics, and portraits. There are even new cosmetics for everyone to enjoy.

Ancient Relics Story and Necroids Species packs are set to arrive in Stellaris: Console Edition sometime later this year.
