There is a saying “Act, and you may eat dinner. Think, and you may be dinner” and with the new Plantoid pack for Stellaris, this is more than true. The first of an unknown number of species packs brings Plantoids, races of sentient plant life, to the universe of Stellaris. Rather than ending up at the lower end of the food chain, these plants have gone to the stars. The talented artists over at Paradox have done some impressive work to the fifteen new portraits, a new cityscape background, and new plant-like ships for the newly galactic species.

Plantoids will be available from 4th of August but if the tease of the new species isn’t enough Paradox released a soundtrack and an e-book which are available now.

Official Press Release

Paradox Development Studio will soon release the first Species Pack for its hit science fiction strategy game, Stellaris. Species Packs will give players new phenotypes to play with as they expand across the galaxy.

This first species pack will be called Plantoids, and, as its name suggests, will introduce sentient plant life to the universe of Stellaris. Instead of becoming salad or animal fodder, these plants have reached for the stars and begun to spread their tendrils across the galaxy, planting the roots of new civilizations on new planets.

Our talented artists have put together fifteen new portraits, an original cityscape backdrop, and stunning new ship models for your new neighbors.

Today we are also releasing for sale the original Stellaris soundtrack, composed by Andreas Waldetoft and the e-book Stellaris: Infinite Frontiers by Steven Savile, an original story about humanity’s first contact with an alien race and the questions this raises.
