Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack Review
Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack is a new story pack for Paradox Development Studio’s iconic sci-fi grand strategy game, Stellaris. This is a solid addition to the game. Why? Well, the exploration aspect of Stellaris is now much more meaty. During the mid to late game, the super fun exploration tended to die down as things became more known. With the excavation mechanics, you can launch lengthy, yet interesting archaeological digs that add a lot of personality and immersion to the proceedings. It starts with a single excavation site that can be overseen by a scientist. Every 90 days, that scientist is rolled on a probability formula as to whether or not they found some clues pertaining to this relic. The value of the dice roll determines if its a single clue or even a double clue event. Now if you send low level scientists at a high level relic they'll either die or lose precious clues that you spent time excavating so you need to pay attention and assign the proper leaders. Depending on the difficulty of the site and skill of the scientist, you may or may not be here for months or even years trying to unlock the next chapter in this relic's saga. Great addition worth the price. It adds a lot more interesting story content to occupy your time while expanding.
