I’ve just found out via Stardock that the next micro-expansion for their time eating game Sins of a Solar Empire is in development!  Diplomacy will “vastly increase the amount of diplomatic options available to players in the game and help make forging good relations with other empires a major option for would-be galactic conquerors. The beta is due out this Fall with the general release Winter 2010.”

Big win for all of us Sins fans.  This game is a 4X RTS and one of the few RTS games I can actually enjoy playing.  When their first micro-expansion, Entrenchment came out I was very happy with it.

I purchased Sins about a week after it was published.  Since that time it is the one game I constantly find myself going back to after I get tired of the latest in high end graphical frag fests.  It’s an intelligent game that requires a bit of for thought but is quick enough that I’m never bored.

I also am very enamored with Stardock and their stance on DRM, game piracy and overall being cool to the gaming community.  As soon as I learn about a beta release date, you’ll all know about it too.  In general, if you pre-purchase the game, you get to participate in the beta as well.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  One Response to “Sins of a Solar Empire: Diplomacy micro-expansion on the way!”

  1. Nice! I was psyched when Entrenchment arrived. Now I have another expansion to look forward too! It’s good because diplomacy in the game was one of the least polished areas.
