Pewzap!And it launches a volley of nuclear laser bombs, if the trailer below is anything to go by. I haven’t had time to get my hands on Rebellion yet, but I certainly have the intention to play it right up. I was one of the many who chewed through hours of Sins of a Solar Empire, and this expandalone has just about enough gravity to bring me back into orbit around its real-time space-conflict happenings. Anyone else on course for a rendezvous with this one?

Fancy lookin’ launch trailer below. (more…)

Product Release - Valve
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is Now Available on Steam!

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.

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).

Community Announcements - Yarlen
<p>It is a time of Rebellion. Stardock announced today the release of the most significant expansion to Ironclad Games' hit RTS, Sins of a Solar Empire.</p>
<p>Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is a stand-alone expansion that does not require players to own a previous edition of Sins of a Solar Empire. It extends the ground-breaking gameplay that has made it one of the most popular PC strategy games of all time.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
