Tuesday, 1st March 2011 19:17 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Stardock and Ironclad have dropped their GDC announcement, detailing Rebellion, the first stand-alone expansion to space-based RTS Sins of a Solar Empire.

Rebellion will bring:

  • 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.

The original game was released back in 2008.

    Finally !, Sins wasn’t the biggest hit of 2008, but it was a game with good ideas, and with this they will expand it even more :), i only hope they will advertise it better.

    Geeze, another little addon pack? I was hoping Ironclad would be a bit more ambitious than that.

    I love Sins, and the expansions are fine, but they nevertheless feel like they should’ve been there to begin with.
