Prepare to meet the Necroids, an intelligent species who believe that death is not the end, but rather the beginning of their journey. Necroids are known to spend their days excitedly studying in preparation for their eventual “transformation” in the Elevation Chamber. New cosmetic changes will reincarnate playthroughs of Stellaris for long time players, while also bringing new life to killer type empires. In total, the Necroids Species Pack includes: 

  • 1 New Origin – Necrophage
    • The brand new Necrophage Origin positions gamer-martyrs as a powerful primary species which consumes others within its grasp, blurring the line between cult and empire with three brand new civics:    
      • Death Cult: Enables powerful edicts which require the sacrificing of pops
      • Reanimated Armies: Allows the deployment of morality-immune, undead armies
      • Memorialists: Erects monuments to the galaxy’s past, improving planetary stability and honouring tomb worlds
  • 16 new portraits (15 organic, 1 robotic)
  • New ship set
