Branch out with the Stellaris Plantoids Species Pack

The Stellaris Plantoids Species Pack is a pack, that brings Plantoid species to Stellaris. Simple, really.



Stellaris Plantoids Species Pack

Just a short update on Paradox Interactive’s space-age grand strategy Stellaris today.

Following on from the recent Asimov update – which had nothing at all to do with robotics – and more than its fair share of controversy, the Stellaris Plantoids Species Pack is quietly and with little fanfare released on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms today.


The Stellaris Plantoids update brings with it a whole new species phenotype. Plantoids includes fifteen new species portraits, a set of new templates for plant-styled civilian and military ships, and new art for the Stellaris Plantoids’ terrestrial cities.

The pack should now be available on all platforms and in all regions, and costs $7.99 / £6.25. Even in deep space, surrounded by alien plantoid lifeforms, the post-Brexit exchange rate is still a killer.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
