A new Species Pack for Stellaris is coming to PC this September 20. Toxoids give players the ability to make tough sacrifices when needed or even the chance to gamble on their planet’s future in exchange for immediate gains.

The Toxoids are said to be the most stubborn and hardiest species ever in the game. Empires that feature Toxoids can grow and even adapt faster compared to other creatures. The problem is that Toxoids have a tendency to make life unpleasant not just for their neighbors but often for themselves.

New Origins

One of the new contents that Toxoids bring is the new origins. One of these is the Knights of the Toxic God. It turns out that in the depths of your homeworld, there are rumors that true power is buried under the toxic sludge. Would you dig up the secrets of your past and unleash them on the galaxy?

Then there is Overtuned. Get to play as species that can gain more traits but at the expense of its own lifespan. Are you willing to live for today and not worry about sticking around for tomorrow?

New Civics

  • Toxic Baths
    • Grow your population fast with a fresh infusion of mutagenic sludge, especially if you’re willing to tolerate the costs to your planet and your people.
  • ​Scavengers
    • They say that one empire’s trash is your empire’s treasure. Don’t be too proud to harvest debris and destruction for quick construction projects of your own.
  • Relentless Industrialists
    • To keep up with demand, you may have to accept the fact that you need to ignore all of those petty regulations and negative opinions. At the end of the day, the surviving population is sure to thank you for all the resources you gained.

New Traits

  • Incubator
    • Be able to repopulate quickly when your planet is empty.
    • Just remember that those growth facilities can fill up fast.
  • Inorganic Breath
    • Your own people are a source of valuable exotic gasses.
    • However, be warned that those respirators are expensive.
  • Noxious
    • Other species can’t stand being around you especially since your mere existence is making your planets awful places to live.
    • On the other side of the coin, other empires find it difficult to fight or subjugate you.
  • Exotic Metabolism
    • You’ve adapted to a point where you can eat food that other species may not be particularly brave enough to do so.

Other New Content

There are new Cosmetics like species portraits, ship models, and even cityscapes. Be ready as well for a new Advisor that’s going to help grow your empire.
