Expansion Pass Four consists of Federations, the Ancient Relics Story Pack, and the Necroids Species Pack. This new Expansion Pass will offer new ways to play Stellaris: Console Edition, further deepening the storytelling and roleplay aspects of the game, and filling the galaxy with more wonder and mystery than ever before.

Starting with Federations, you will be able to pass powerful resolutions in the Galactic Community, form new Federation types, build new massive constructions including the Mega Shipyard, and the Juggernaut mobile shipyard, and choose from 8 new Origins to allow further customization of your empires.

Ancient Relics Story Pack (coming 2021) adds new archaeology sites and powerful new relics to Stellaris: Console Edition, allowing you to discover the galaxy as never before. Excavate ruins left by ancient empires, which could potentially reveal massive advantages to help in your conquest of the galaxy or discover Relic worlds long since abandoned.

Finally, the Necroids Species Pack (coming 2021) allows you to play as powerful undead creatures, absorbing willing sapient populations into your empire, with powerful new civics that allow you to memorialize fallen sapients, perform ritual sacrifices, and raise armies of undead.
