Posted on 04 Aug 2017

Today we are treated to some exciting news regarding Paradox Interactive’s hugely popular, sci-fi, grand strategy game, Stellaris, a game rife with adventure as you explore a vast galaxy full of wonder and challenges. The good news? A new Story Pack titled ‘Synthetic Dawn‘ will be adding in plenty of new things, synthetic life forms being the key factor.

The bad news? Welp, this new DLC is not available just yet, and we don’t have a set launch date available to us at this time either, gotta love those ambiguous “later this year” release details. Anyway, the Synthetic Dawn DLC will have all the robotic elements any aspiring non-biological entity could ever dream of, even Lieutenant Commander Data would be proud. Check out the above teaser as well as the official Press Release below for more details and enjoy!

Stellaris Prepares Robotic Empires for Digital Distribution Across the Universe

New Story Pack “Synthetic Dawn” to Add AI Civilizations and Robot Collectives

STOCKHOLM — Aug. 3, 2017 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer of digital entertainment for organic minds, today announced a new Story Pack for Stellaris, the sci-fi grand strategy game from Paradox Development Studio. The new content, titled “Synthetic Dawn,” will add new ways for players to experience Stellaris, focused primarily on synthetic life forms. Robot workers and citizens can now form entirely mechanical societies at the start of the game and seek greatness among the stars – including the ability to rise up and conquer those squishy organics. Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn will be released for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs later this year.

Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn provides an all-new way for players to establish their empire across the stars, starting the game as a Machine Empire — a society made up entirely of robots. Unique game features and event chains will allow the machines to expand as a robotic consciousness, and create an AI-led network that grows to galactic dominance.


  • You, Robot: Play Stellaris as a customized robotic civilization, complete with a series of robotic portraits for science robots, worker robots, and more
  • AI, eh? Aye!: Follow new event chains and story features to lead your robot race to greatness as an intergalactic AI empire; pursue mechanical perfection in the stars
  • Rise of the Machines: Oppressed synths may rebel against their masters and form new empires — or you may even discover a fallen synthetic civilization deep in space
  • Digital Enhancements: New synthetic race portraits, and expanded voice packs for VIR
