Stardock today announced the release of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, a stand-alone expansion in the space strategy series.
“Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion combines the best elements of real-time strategy with the depth normally reserved for 4X games. Players take command of a space-faring civilization that is fighting for its very existence in a vast interstellar war. This conflict will see players colonize planets, battle pirates, research new technologies, conduct trade, use diplomacy and engage in epic battles with massive fleets.
In Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, years of unending conflict have resulted in internal strife within the three warring races – the Trader Emergency Coalition, the Vasari Empire and the Advent Unity. As a result, players can choose to play as a loyalist or rebel faction of the three races, each with their own techs and ships.
In addition to warring factions, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion also includes new “Titan” class warships. These massive vessels are fleets unto themselves and can unleash destruction across an entire star system. When matched with the additional new corvettes and capital ships, they create a variety of interesting tactical options for players.
The underlying game engine has also been overhauled to deliver state of the art graphics resulting in breathtaking visuals.”
