Stellaris unveils new archaeology themed Ancient Relics story pack DLC
Paradox Interactive has unveiled a brand-new story pack for its wonderful sci-fi strategy title Stellaris. It's called Ancient Relics, and is scheduled to arrive on PC and Mac "soon".
Stellaris' story packs have historically foregone the major features seen in flagship expansions, and have instead sought to enrich the experience through deeper lore and other intrigue. To date, Stellaris has received three story packs - Leviathans, Synthetic Dawn, and Distant Stars (focussing on ancient aliens, robots, and extragalactic travel, respectively) - and Ancient Relics promises to add an archaeological twist to the 4X core.
According to Paradox, there are two Precursors to uncover in the new Ancient Relics expansion, alongside Relic Worlds and ancient treasures. "Uncover the ruins of long-dead civilisations in Relic Worlds to piece together the story of their rise and eventual downfall," explains the publisher, "Mine their derelict cities and ships to unearth the truth, discover powerful relics and harness them for your own empire's ambitions."
