Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

Stand-alone expansion revamps visuals.

Stardock has announced Rebellion, a stand-alone expansion to PC game Sins of a Solar Empire.

It features new factions, new ships, enhanced graphics and new victory conditions.

"Rebellion is the first stand-alone expansion to the Sins of a Solar Empire universe," said Stardock's director of publishing Brian Clair.

"Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion will add many new ships, refresh the visuals and integrate Impulse::Reactor features to support achievements, multiplayer leagues and much more."

The list of new features in full:

  • New Factions: Players decide whether to become Loyalists or Rebels, which unlocks a unique new tech tree granting them new technologies and ship variants.
  • New Titan-class ships:  Massive warships for each race that dwarf capital ships, these deadly new monsters are capable of wiping out entire enemy fleets single-handedly.
  • New Capital Ships:  A new capital ship class arrives, giving players new strategic options.
  • New Corvette-class ships:  Small, highly maneuverable light ships that are adept at a variety of tasks.
  • Loyalist and Rebel versions of some of the existing Sins' frigates and cruisers, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses.
  • Updated lighting and particle effects for enhanced visuals.
  • New Victory Conditions to allow for more variety, differing strategies and shorter game sessions.
  • Additional capital ship ability levels, for greater strategic choice.
  • Impulse::Reactor support for chat, friends, achievements and more.

Stardock failed to announce a release date.

Kieron Gillen reviewed Sins of a Solar Empire for Eurogamer back in March 2008, awarding it a 9/10.
