Ironclad’s 2008 galaxy-spanning real-time strategy title Sins of a Solar Empire has been lighting up the vacuum of space for years now, and it looks to have plenty of life in it. Stardock has sent along some new screenshots from the game’s upcoming download-only expansion Rebellion, which is due out later this year. Following on the previous two expansions, Rebellion is set after Diplomacy has failed and each side finds itself fractured in the face of a seemingly endless war that has strained nerves and resources to the breaking point.
As a loyalist or a rebel, players will select a faction and sub-faction to lead through the storm. Each faction will have their own tech tree, as well as access to new battleships, Corvettes, and massive behemoths known as Titans. And for the players, there’s a new graphics system, new music, and a new modding system.
