Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion trailer shows off the game's new look

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...

    This is the worst news ever. Not only is this an intro cinematic, and does not represent any gameplay, the writer literally tried to suck as much bs out of this non-newsworthy item as possible. "... 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..." Really dude? 25 new images per second?... yes that's how movies generally work.

    I am still playing this game. I can't wait for Rebellion to finally come out. I am a huge strategy game fan and this looks to improve one of the genres best.
