Stellaris Welcomes the Machine Empires on September 21

Story Pack “Synthetic Dawn” Arriving this Month; New Feature Video Reveals Distinct Types of Robotic Overlords

STOCKHOLM — Sep. 6, 2017 —
Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer of games that challenge your hivemind, today announced that “Synthetic Dawn,” a new Story Pack for Stellaris, will be available on September 21, 2017. Synthetic Dawn, a pack which allows players to expand across the universe as a customized robotic civilization, will release later this month on Windows, MacOS, and Linux PCs in order to spread its message to as many potential computerized allies as possible. Featuring Machine Empire gameplay and events, along with new music, voice packs, portraits and more, Synthetic Dawn will retail for $9.99.

To prepare humanity for proper subjugation under the unstoppable machine intelligence, Paradox Development Studio has today released a new video developer diary detailing the many features included in Synthetic Dawn.


Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn provides an all-new way for players to establish their empire across the stars: as an entire civilization of artificial beings. Stellaris players will have the option to start the game as a Machine Empire, be they relentless exterminators or overenthusiastic servitors. Players will face unique challenges as they assert their digital dominance – and encounter mysterious robotic Fallen Empires in the far reaches of space.

I don't think the video mentioned it, but the feature where a cyborg species can choose to evolve into a machine empire is still in, right?

Still wish there was a way to start as 'individualist' (non-hivemind) robots so I could play an Autobots/Decepticon type species, though. I assume there's no way for a machine empire to 'devolve' into cyborg empires.

After last night's twitter poll (which obviously did not pick the next development focus), I do wonder if the next expansion focus or two have already been set in stone - and what they might be. Crossing my fingers for improved Federations; between the regular hive minds and rampaging machines, other simpler species need better tools to band together against these threats.

Most important of all - will we have space unicorns by Christmas? :p

But I believe, this DLC should allow players to build Machine looking fleets (such as ones used by the old Machine Rebellion crisis) from the beginning, with customizable colors.

Yeah, almost indistinguishable from a human.
