Expansion Pass Two - Release Date Announcement!

April 27th

We are pleased to announce Stellaris: Console Edition Expansion Pass Two!

This new set of Stellaris add-ons contains the Synthetic Dawn Story Pack, Apocalypse Expansion and the Humanoids Species Pack!

Starting with Synthetic Dawn, players will have an all-new way of establishing their empire across the stars. 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.

Synthetic Dawn, as well as the free 2.2 update to Stellaris: Console Edition, will release on May 12th, 2020.

We hope you continue to enjoy Stellaris: Console Edition!



Plantoids Species Pack introduces a new phenotype for players with original art and animations. As the title implies, Plantoids will give Stellaris fans access to a plant-like species that has gained sentience and begun to spread its tendrils across the galaxy, planting the roots of new civilizations on new planets.

  • Fifteen new species portraits (cosmetic)
  • New templates for plantoid civilian and military ships
  • New cityscape art

In Stellaris: Leviathans Story Pack, the galaxy will be filled anew with adventure and challenge as your new and naïve space-faring empire comes face-to-face and ship-to-ship with a host of dangers and rewards.

  • GUARDIANS - Powerful space entities with mysterious origins and motives. Fight or investigate them to unlock technologies and gain access to great treasures.
  • ENCLAVES - Independent outposts of traders and artists who are willing to make a deal. Exchange resources, purchase information about the galaxy, or commission a great work of art for your empire.
  • WAR IN HEAVEN - Where will your fledgling empire lie if two ancient Fallen Empires decide to renew old grievances in a War in Heaven? Will you err on the side of caution and take a side with the stronger power, or will you strike at both whilst they are occupied with their own titanic struggle?

Now introducing multiplayer for the Stellaris: Console Edition! At last, players can match their strategy, management, and tactics with one another to colonize or conquer the galaxy. With the ability to start multiplayer sessions, continue sessions as a single player and even hotjoin a game already in progress, console players can finally get in on the multiplayer action!

  • Play however you want - Experience a vast galaxy with up to 14 empires, and make it yours with up to 4 of your human friends.
  • Save and load multiplayer games - Players can start multiplayer sessions with the option to continue in single player.
  • Hotjoin a session - As an option, the multiplayer game can be joined by other players by pausing the game and allowing the host to accept or decline the request. Once accepted, the new player can choose to play as any empire already in the game.

Utopia is the first major expansion for Stellaris: Console Edition. Develop your galactic empire with unique species specialization and take your society in a variety of directions.

  • MEGASTRUCTURES - Build wondrous structures in your systems and bring both prestige and major advantages to your race.
  • HABITAT STATIONS - Establish space stations that will house large populations, serving the role of planets in a small and confined empire.
