We've previously been over
some static images of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion's graphical overhaul, showing how the once-fancy-looking game still looks plenty
nice thanks to a revamped visuals engine. However, this new clip
contains some 25 new images per second of the game's improved
graphics, which would be a staggering amount of new information to
take in were it not tied together with a gravelly voiceover
explaining what you need to know about the game's backstory.
Rebellion, the first
standalone expansion for the 2008 RTS, will bring more than just a
graphical overhaul when it's released in a couple months' time. The
title also adds Rebel and Loyalist factions to each race, each of
them with their own new craft and resources. Stardock leaked a beta
version of the title to pre-order customers last month, and is
teasing a second iteration of the beta soon.
The company's also
offering a $10 pre-order discount on the expansion for owners of the original game's Trinity collected edition. If that
sounds to you like a good excuse to pick up the original for a bit of
practice, you might just about be done with your first game by the
time the expansion's released...
