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.”
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.
