Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion overhauls engine

Stardock and Ironclad Games have launched a surprise update for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion [official site], their sparefaring RTS from 2012. The update brings engine improvements to let the game use more memory so it can crash less, it reduces stuttering in large battles, fixes AI bugs, supports modern high resolutions, adds options for higher-quality textures and shadows, and it generally makes Rebellion…

8 Years On, New Sins Of A Solar Empire DLC

I remember when it were all Sins of A Solar Empire [official site] 'round these parts. Couldn't move for Rossignols and Gillens talking about spaceship real-time strategy/4X games. Over eight chuffing years later, oh God I am so old, Ironclad and Stardock's space management'n'war-em'up is still going strong. It was reinvigorated with the shinier Rebellion expandalone in 2012, which has just now received new, criminal…

Sins Of A Dark Age Launches Out Of Early Access As F2P

Even by the time Sins of a Solar Empire folks Ironclad Games announced their MOBA Sins of a Dark Age [official site] in 2012, the genre was a little overcrowded. SoaDA was originally billed as a MOBA/RTS, but later dropped bits like base-building. It's still trying to be more ambitious than you average Dote 'em up or Loller, though. Now, after a lengthy stretch on…

DotAbsolution: See Sins Of A Dark Age In Motion

Swapping deep space for fantasy, Sins Of A Solar Empire creators Ironclad Games have released some game and talky-head footage of their upcoming MOBA Sins Of A Dark Age - the main sins being wrath, greed, and - no doubt the most hated by its players - sloth. It's hoping to be a bit more dynamic than most, using its Realm Quests system to keep…

Sins Of A Dark Age Enters New Age, Drops RTS Bits

Sins of a Dark Age ain't what it used to be. In spite of my totally sly, semi-misleading opening remark, I don't necessarily mean it's worse. However, I have no idea if it's better either. It's just, you know, different. In short, though, Ironclad's decided to remove the RTS-like Commander role from its MOBA flagship, so now it's hoping to weave between the toes of…

Rebellion Suing Stardock Over The Word ‘Rebellion’

Rebellion are suing Stardock and Ironclad Games over the use of the term "Rebellion". Ironclad's standalone expansion pack for their strategy series was called Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, and the trademark suit claims that the use of the word has "deprived [Rebellion] of substantial sales of its products". Blimey.

Sins Of A Solar Empire: Rebellion Hits Final Beta Phase

Stardock and Ironclad Games send word that the final phase of their Sins Of A Solar Empire: Rebellion beta is now underway, and have immortalised that event with a YouTube'd trailer, which you can see below, along with the main trailer. The pre-orders for the new version of the game get you access to the beta, of course, and you get $10 off if you…

Sins Of A Dark Age: The World’s First F2PMOBARTS

I just Googled 'F2PMOBARTS' and received nothing. Well done, Ironclad Games! Sins Of A Dark Age, has broken the all-seeing eye of the world's best search engine, and brought out its passive-aggressive side: "Did you mean: 'F2P MOBARTS'". No, Google. I did not. F2PMOBARTS, you are officially a new genre. Now to explain what all those words mean.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Is Shinier

We've not heard much about the Sins of a Solar Empire expandalone/quasi sequel Rebellion since it appeared on the radar back in March. Today though Stardock sent over a couple of images (below) showing how the graphical overhaul will shiny-up the ships from the original game to give the new game a good dose of polish. And they are at least 25% shinier, according to…

Sins Of A Solar Sieve-brain

Aha! I knew I had downloaded something interesting and then forgotten about it. That something, I now realise, was Diplomacy, the latest expansion for Sins Of A Solar Empire. It came out last week, and I had a nagging feeling there was something I was meant to be playing... just couldn't put my finger on it. Anyway, it looks a lot like this expansion finishes…

Surf Solar Sins: Diplomacy Beta on Pre-Order

As much as I dislike the beta-access for pre-order trend, this is one case in which I'm sorely tempted to just slap down the cash. Sins Of A Solar Empire's second expandy update thing, Diplomacy, will open its beta (currently in progress) to anyone who pre-orders via Impulse. It requires the original game and Entrenchment to play, but I have been playing the crap out…

Entrenchment: Sins Of A Trailer Empire

If I were making a trailer for the brilliant Sins Of A Solar Empire I would definitely show the best feature in the game: the extraordinary long zoom from space craft out to solar map. It's the kind of camera wizziness that puts Supreme Commander to shame. It's the thing that makes the game as impressive as it is. Instead, the new movie for the…

Sins Expansion Confirmed

Excuse me if I whoop and perhaps punch the air, but I am uncharacteristically over-excited by the announcement that RPS' favourite space RTS of the moment, the gigantic and enthralling Sins Of A Solar Empire, is going to get an expansion pack. Wired are the couriers of this splendid news: While he couldn't nail down a date for the expansion pack's release, Mr. Wardell did…
