The Aquatics Species Pack allows players to embrace the life of a seafaring civilization as they sail the open expanses of the galaxy. Dive into Stellaris with a sea of new choices, and discover new life where one least expects it. Let a wave of new customizable options for player empires crash into Stellaris, with a treasure trove of new species portraits, ship set, origins and more. In all, the Aquatics Species Pack includes:

  • New Origin: Here be Dragons!: An ancient, intelligent, thousand year old sage-like blue dragon is orbiting your home world. She protects, but also demands – is she a guardian or threat? Perhaps both….
  • New Origin – Ocean Paradise: Aquatic species have mastered the water elements and are now ready to harvest the rewards that a life on the sea brings. Gives players a larger home world, as well as happier schools that grow faster!
  • New trait: Aquatic: These species are adapted to live on ocean worlds but less so on others. Choose carefully when beginning your voyage!
  • New Civic: Anglers: Visit the agriculture districts to reap the spoils of the ocean: fresh seafood and rare pearls, a valuable consumer good.
  • New Ascension perk: Hydrocentric: Aquatic species have developed cheaper and faster methods of modifying their environments, by either terraforming planets into oceanic worlds or making them bigger by harvesting water from other worlds.
  • New ship set with a sleek look, designed to help you yacht your way through space.
  • New Aquatics Dragon: A new, majestic space dragon will now grace the stars.
  • New Advisor: Sail the stars alongside the Seafarer advisor voice, inspired by high-seas adventure fiction.
  • 15 new aquatics portraits.
