Outlaw Sectors brings new maps and gameplay options to Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion



Outlaw Sectors DLC is here with a new gameplay option and lots of new maps

Challenge yourself with new strategies and unique setups with the new “Outlaw Sectors” gameplay option and brand new maps for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. The variety of map sizes and designs will let you enjoy any kind of match you want, from intimate 1v1 duels all the way to epic 10-player brawls.

Gameplay Options

The lawless fringe is increasingly hostile, but for those with a criminal mind it's also rich with new opportunities.

Smuggling Specialization: Choose this planetary development to grab a cut of everyone's trade income - but at a cost. The increased corruption from this black market activity will reduce that planet's tax income.

Rampant Militias: Autonomous planetary militias will grow, raid nearby systems, and repopulate over time. Use them to help defend your worlds, or coordinate your attacks with their strikes for maximum impact.

Pirate Turf: Vicious when in their home sector, pirates can now raid multiple players simultaneously, drastically changing the art of the bidding war. And, just to make sure they are fully motivated to do what they do best, all credits spent on bounties will receive an automatic bonus.

Included Maps
Power Struggle - Contest the distant resource fields and nearby planets before striking at the enemy’s homeworld.
Slim Pickings - Claim what remains among the war-torn stars and seize what you can from the other empires.
Crossfire - Take your enemy’s homeworlds and coordinate your assault with your ally in order to win.
High Stakes - Build a powerful fleet and seize the resource rich planets from enemy militia.
Ironheart - Flanked by an enemy on each side, you must prioritize your resources carefully to achieve victory.
Titans of Cimtar - Secure your planet from among the 8 gas giants dominating the map, then make war upon your neighbors.
Death Spiral - The system is falling into a black hole and your enemies aren’t about to let you leave without a fight.
Dogfight - Lead your allies into glorious battle amongst the stars in this huge map.
Buzzsaw - Make one mistake and you may lose more than you bargained for in this spiral galaxy that leaves no room for error.
Rising Empires - Secure your star system amidst the crushed local resistance and set your sights on your rivals’ territories.
Desolation - Claim what little the Vasari have left behind and forge what remains of the worlds in the massive cluster of stars into a force capable of conquest.

Outlaw Sectors DLC is now available on Steam or through Stardock.

About This Game

The Next Installment to the Award-Winning RTS.
While many were hopeful that diplomacy would finally end the war, differing opinions on what should be done, along with the depleted power of the controlling factions, has led to a splintering of the groups involved.

The loyalist members of the Trader Emergency Coalition adopt a policy of isolation, focusing on enhanced defenses to ride out the rest of the war. Those who rebel against the coalition take on a purely militant view, coming to the opinion that the only way to bring peace is by ultimately crushing all who oppose them - especially xenos.

For the first time in their history, the war creates a schism in the Advent Unity. The loyalists seek to continue their policy of revenge against the Traders, and to assimilate all others to the Unity’s influence. However, others amongst the Advent suspect that a corrupting influence from within has diverted the Unity from its proper destiny.

The divide created in the Vasari Empire is less pronounced, but just as severe to their people. With the Vasari now practically frantic to move on to new space, the loyalist faction abandons cooperation and decides to take the resources they need by any means necessary. Having accepted the need to work together, the rebel faction feels that their best chance for survival is to work with the other races and bring them along to flee the approaching enemy.

Take the battle for galactic supremacy to its ultimate level in Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion – a standalone RT4X game that combines the tactics of real-time strategy with the depth of the 4X genre (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate).

Key features:

  • New Factions: Decide whether to play as a Loyalist or Rebel – each unlocks new technologies, ships and play styles for each race.
  • New Titan Class Warships: Mighty titans enter the fray of the war to tip the scales of power. Each faction may field their own unique titan, drawing upon unique strengths and abilities on the battlefield.
  • New and Updated Capital Ships: A new capital ship joins the fleet for each race to offer even more tactical options. Additionally, all existing capital ships have been upgraded to four levels for their abilities, allowing players to focus their ships along specific strengths.
  • New Corvette Class Ships: Small and maneuverable, each faction has developed a new light attack craft to harass enemy forces.
  • Updated Visuals: Updated graphics, particle effects, lighting and shadows, race specific UI and other enhancements make the Sins’ universe look better than ever.
  • New Victory Conditions: Take multiple paths to victory including – Military, Diplomatic, Research, Last Flagship Standing, Last Capital Standing and Occupation.
  • New Audio: More than 60 minutes of original music, countless new sound effects and dozens of new voice overs help bring the drama of battle to new levels of immersion.
  • Tutorials: New and updated tutorials make it easy for both experienced and new players to quickly start building their own solar empire.
  • Plus, a number of optimizations that provide better performance than ever before!

Good fun space strategy game, brought to life with mods. Hopefully they will some time in the future bring out a remastered version (not just stick bloody ads in it, nasty).
Mods really bring the game to life, buy on special and have fun.

This game is by far my favorite and most played game currently on Steam. Even if you are not a fan of a RTS I highly recommend this game because there is so much content to it. For what you get by just purchasing the game itself is well worth even full price. There is something for almost anyone here and the mods make the game far greater.

Here is a list of my top mods for this game.
1.)Sins of the Fallen-(Compatible with Fall of Kobal) which is Battle Star Galactica.
2.)Sins of the Prophets-which is a Halo mod!
3.)Sins of a Galactic Empire-Which is obviously Star Wars

This game is very mod friendly and best of all features it runs on the system where if you have a friend who is hosting with DLC you can play with them and expirience the DLC first hand before you make a chioce to purchase them or not which is a system currently not being used by recent publishers.

I cannot praise this game enough and I look forward to the future of this game. If you have any questions about this game or possibly even want to play with me sometime feel free to message me or add me. Thanks for your time.

I bought this game originally from Stardock 8 years ago, and eventually bought it again on steam. A staple of my library, always fun to come back to and the visuals are still impressive. The game has also seen extensive support, and 8 years after launch still received DLC from the developer. Also has mod support for even more customization and longevity. A truly impressive game, and unlike anything on the market.

*Excellent balance of 4x game elements in a real time setting ( On-the-fly game speed control available).

*Scalable combat that delivers tactical level strategy, to massive fleet engagements that span multiple fronts and star systems. Ships ranging from fighter craft all the way up to colossal titans and super weapons capable of wiping out entire planets.

*Multiple game customization options and victory conditions. Allows for espionage, economic sabotage, research and conquest victories, to name a few.

*Mod support

I have a hard time coming up with any negatives, but to be fair, the combat and empire management can get a bit unmanageable on some of the larger maps. I also do not play multiplayer, so I can't really speak for the community there. That said, I've put 200+ hours in this game on Steam alone,and probably as much on other platforms and have never grown tired of it. I real gem. 10/10

Sins is truly one of the best strategy games ever made. Played 100's of hours before I even bought it on steam; thats right this game is so fun that I have bought it twice. If you are looking for a epic 4x game, look no further.

If you like large scale RTS battles with units strewn about the galaxy this is the game for you.
Sins offers a wide selection of maps to choose from as well as a custom map generator. Large tech trees and very interesting races with unique play styles.

10/10

Pros:
infinite map variety
indepth tech and research
economy mechanics
blowing the other teams away
runs very well on linux using playonlinux and wine

Cons:
You don't own it yet

Its a huge scale Space RTS with a Star Trek Mod, a Star Wars Mod, and a hopefully successful Warhammer 40k mod. It features fleet action in the hundreds, planet counts into the lower hundreds, and best of all it runs on lower scale toasters.

Buy the damned game already.

if you want a guarunteed good strategy game, you can always count on stardock, this is the best real time strategy game i have ever played, been playing for a couple years now and its still addicting, no other strategy game even comes close to having this amount of depth to it, all other companies that develop real time strategy just need to move the ♥♥♥♥ over, the winner was decided 8 years ago

Best game ever since i use to play Star Wars Empire at War. This made me get that feel back and lots of mods you can use. Using Sins of the Prophets made me now feel like im playing Halo Wars with Space Battles.
Its hard at first for those who are new to the game. Though playing, watching youtube videos, and practice (even though you may lose). It is a fun game to play and lots of modding out their for you to make it more of what you want.
Like: Sins of the Prophet (halo), Star Wars, Mass Effect, Star Trek, and many more.

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes games like these.

Fantastic series of games - the whole Sins of a Solar Empire series, I mean. Great scale and a very casual pace, that allows you to weigh your options and think through the game. There is a rich and challenging technology tree, and there's variety in the gameplay and situations. Perhaps one fault is the lack of a good single player campaign or story of some kind. The game mechanics could also have taken into consideration things like orbits for planets, to make it a bit nicer. Overall, fresh even after 8+ years, and very fun.

You nuke a planet until it surrenders and then repopulate it with a colonization frigate
