About This Content

Distant Stars is a new discovery-themed story pack, where players will uncover new anomalies and storylines, and encounter strange new beings in the uncharted depths of space. Distant Stars will also feature new surprises that may help or harm ambitious explorers.

The Distant Stars Story Pack will include:

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Discover hidden traces of an ancient gateway network unlocking a sealed path to a constellation outside our own galaxy. But is this door holding something out, or keeping something in?

SENSORS ARE PICKING UP… THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT

Encounter dozens of new anomalies and events for your intrepid scientists to observe and analyze, and a galaxy of wonders for them to discover.

BRAVE NEW WORLDS

Plot unexplored unique solar systems, each with their own story to tell. Gain technology, resources, and valuable worlds to colonize.

THERE'S ALWAYS A BIGGER FISH

Come face to face with a number of unique gargantuan creatures that exist and thrive in the vacuum of space. But approach with caution, because whether gentle giants or something more sinister, these legendary behemoths have existed long before you and will do what it takes to survive long after.

UPDATE (Sep 2018)

Stellaris: Distant Stars Story Pack, released in May 2018, introduced a host of new anomalies and storylines hidden in the deepest, darkest reaches of the galaxy. Through extensive community feedback and iteration on the content, Distant Stars now receives a major free upgrade for intrepid explorers of the galaxy.

Now with new anomaly outcomes, additional storylines, and expansion of existing events including the enigmatic L-Cluster, exploring these gateways holds even more mystery and intrigue. Will you boldly go, or are the ancient secrets of the galaxy best left alone?

These updates are available now at no extra cost to Stellaris: Distant Stars Story Pack and, if you already own this pack, the content is available free of charge.
