  1. A great and fun expansion if you like robots
    by Air H., Latvia - Feb 3rd 2018

    This expansion allows you to play as a special type of an empire- a machine empire. There are 3 unique types of them (Rogue Servitors, who are basically machines keeping people as pets and making sure they are happy; Driven Assimilators, who want to assimilate other beings into their hive-mind and Determined Exterminators, who just want all biological life to die. Machine lives are cool though) and one standard type, which is is pretty fun in itself. It also adds advisor voices (which are nice and add a bit of flavour), new machine portraits and a Fallen Machine Empire. I'd recommend getting this story pack if you want to primarely play as a machine empire, otherwise it is just a bit of flavour and not necessary at all.

  2. Good story add on
    by odyhunter, Ireland - Jan 22nd 2018

    Good story add-on, but wait for a sale to get it... this is just a DLC for machine, not an expansion.

  3. One of the best DLC so far
    by Vinc D., France - Jan 4th 2018

    An excellent DLC for Stellaris. Less content than the Utopia DLC but it is definitely worth it !
