Paradox Interactive announced that the expansion Ancient Relics will be making its way to the console version of grand strategy Stellaris on September 30th. Uncover the ruins of long-dead civilizations to piece together their story. Excavate derelict cities and ships to unearth the truth, discover powerful relics and harness them for your own ambitions.
Collect valuable relics in your adventures as rewards for resolving game events or after completing a dig at a multi-stage archaeological site. Each relic gives significant benefits to your empire to aid in your interstellar escapades.
Encounter clues about two extinct Precursor civilizations, the Baol and the Zroni, the former a sprawling hivemind of plantoids, the latter some of the most powerful psionics to have ever lived. Players can investigate their home systems to understand who they were and, more importantly, what can be learned from their demise.
Learning from history is much more than parables and antiquities, it can often be the key to understanding one’s own place in the galaxy. Utilizing archaeological research, discover Minor Artifacts, a new consumable resource type which can help empower one’s empire.
