Space is lovely, dark and deep, but it has secrets it wants to keep. Rich systems defended by fierce creatures, hostile pockets of resistance to your civilization, and the sleeping giants of the universe – the Fallen Empires who may yet be stirred from their centuries long indolence.
In Stellaris: Leviathans, the galaxy will be filled anew with adventure and challenge as your new and naïve space-faring empire comes face-to-face and ship-to-ship with a host of dangers and rewards.
Guardians: Powerful space entities with mysterious origins and motives. Fight or investigate them to unlock technologies and gain access to great treasures.
Enclaves: Independent outposts of traders and artists who are willing to make a deal. Exchange resources, purchase information about the galaxy, or commission a great work of art for your empire.
War in Heaven: Where will your fledgling empire lie if two ancient Fallen Empires decide to renew old grievances in a War in Heaven? Will you err on the side of caution and take a side with the stronger power, or will you strike at both whilst they are occupied with their own titanic struggle?
Trying to enjoy the game, but in the mid-game you get spammed with "RESOURCE STOCKPILE IS FULL!" and you see your minerals being full, no matter what you do? This helps by making your credits give you problems instead. So far as I have seen, this DLC has 3 main features: -First of all, you have some spooky creatures floating around the galaxy... and they aren't really friendly. When you manage to defeat them, they pretty much give your fleet steroids (insane armour and weapons tech) -Second is the enclave system. There are a few outposts scattered across the galaxy, which if found can allow for some communication and trading. There are 3 types of enclaves, each with their own benefit to the empires that find them. -The war in heaven (which actually isn't in Heaven) is supposed to make the lackluster late game offer more variety. Basically at the start of the game ( if you didn't turn them off in the settings ) you can find some fallen empires - they are ancient empires who have lost a lot of their former lands, but are still in a very good shape in terms of technology and power. Once they awaken, they become a little bit more hostile and declare war on everyone. With the DLC, they go to war with each other and you can choose a side ( they will be angry if you don't ). I played without any DLC and struggled a lot, then I found out this DLC is a thing and the game is much more enjoyable when you don't get spammed by notifications about full stockpiles.. plus the other things like the guardians that float around the galaxy.
The Leviathans Story Pack adds some interesting late game content, though it is likely to be overshadowed by the free game update that released on the same day that improved and tweaked a variety of features. While the free update added many improvements the focus of the Leviathan pack is creating a late game war, War In Heaven event, between two of the Fallen Empires, extremely powerful ancient civilizations, that will drag the rest of the galaxy into their conflict in one way or another. This can make for an interesting end game event where you can attempt to ally with one side, bring allies together to fight them off, or attempt to avoid the war entirely hoping that it won't reach your borders. The other features added are things that can effect the early or mid game as well. The first of these features is guardians, giant space entities, that can be bargained with or fought in order to gain technology bonuses or other useful things. The other addition is three different kinds of trading outposts that can give you a place to commission work, trade goods, or they might allow you to learn about technology or about guardians. The best of the new content came in the free patch but this DLC does add a lot of good features to the game.
