About Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

About this game

A new exciting chapter for an award-winning RTS. Take the battle for galactic supremacy to its ultimate level with your Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Steam PC key. In this standalone expansion for the popular 4X grand strategy, you'll get your hands on new factions, warships, and improved visuals for a true interstellar experience.

THE BATTLE IS OVER, BUT THE WAR...
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. For the first time in their history, the war creates a schism in the Advent Unity.

The loyalists seek to continue their policy of revenge against the Traders and to assimilate all others to the Unity’s influence. However, others amongst the Advent suspect that a corrupting influence from within has diverted the Unity from its proper destiny.

The divide created in the Vasari Empire is less pronounced but just as severe to their people. With the Vasari now practically frantic to move on to new space, the loyalist faction abandons cooperation and decides to take the resources they need by any means necessary.

Having accepted the need to work together, the rebel faction feels that their best chance for survival is to work with the other races and bring them along to flee the approaching enemy.

NEW FACTIONS AND WARSHIPS
Decide whether to play as a Loyalist or Rebel - each unlocks new technologies, ships, and play styles for each race. Mighty titans enter the fray of the war to tip the scales of power - each faction may field their own unique titan, drawing upon unique strengths and abilities on the battlefield.

Also, a new capital ship joins the fleet for each race to offer even more tactical options. Additionally, all existing capital ships have been upgraded to four levels for their abilities, allowing players to focus their ships along with specific strengths.

 

Small and maneuverable, each faction has developed a new light attack craft to harass enemy forces.

VICTORY SHALL BE YOURS
Take multiple paths to victory including - Military, Diplomatic, Research, Last Flagship Standing, Last Capital Standing, and Occupation.

NEW AND IMPROVED
Enjoy more than 60 minutes of original music, countless new sound effects, and dozens of new voiceovers that help bring the drama of battle to new levels of immersion. You'll also experience updated graphics, particle effects, lighting and shadows, race-specific UI, and other enhancements that make the Sins’ universe look better than ever.

LEARN THE BASICS
New and updated tutorials make it easy for both experienced and new players to quickly start building their own solar empire. Plus, a number of optimizations that provide better performance than ever before!

! Story ! The story of the game is good at most. It is the generic story of you is in space doing research and mining resources (and other space stuff) and suddenly some aliens come and attack you for no good reason, then you retaliate and the battle gets dragged for some decades. between the races there is also a rebel faction which may fight against the same race since their interests are not similar. This kind of story may not be the best but it is fitting for the game since it is never-ending in its own way. Although one thing that is very impressive is the storytelling. The voice actors have done a great job and gave life to the dialogues with their amazing acting. ! Gameplay and Mechanics ! Since this game is different from the many action-packed popular genres, I'll add some information on the gameplay and not only just share my thoughts. The gameplay is slow-paced but interesting. Rather than having a quick victory within some minutes you have to achieve it slowly and steadily which makes it worth it. You will start from a single planet and from there you have to collect resources which are going to be used in building structures and ships, then build different structures that will provide you with different advantages, set up defenses to protect your planet from invasion, create your fleet to protect your planets as well as conquer enemy and unknown planets and other celestial bodies and find the enemy home planet. The first player to conquer the enemy home planet will be decided the victor, although this is the primary way to achieve victory but you can win if you turn on other victory methods before starting the game like flagship victory, research victory etc. Each have their own conditions to win the game. There are many different types of celestial bodies in the star system with very first being the star of the system, then there are planets with different terrains as well as asteroids too. You have to find, conquer, colonize, fortify and start collecting resources. There are three main resources being the crystal, credits and metal, which can be obtained by trading, mining for crystal and metal and collecting taxes for credit. They will be used for building structures, doing research and as well as doing trades. Rest of them will be mostly related to expanding the fleet and can get upgraded in the research tree in their respective sub-section in the research tree. There are also a variety of options available in terms of structures but...
