The Co-Op Experience:
Choose from a wide range of scenarios to complete. Each scenario ranges in size and the number of players it supports.
Players can work together to conquer enemy AI, utilizing interface tools for communication and collaboration.
Sins of a Solar Empire Background:
Ten millennia have passed since you and the few survivors of the once mighty Vasari Empire fled from an unknown threat that all but exterminated your kind. You now find yourself at the fringe of the galaxy in a sector occupied by a pathetically primitive species - one obsessed with trade and lacking any central organization or military technology. Calling themselves the Trader Emergency Coalition, they would have been ideal slaves in the glorious days of the past, but time is of the essence. Use your mastery of phase-space manipulation, gravity and nanotechnology to quickly eliminate any local resistance and acquire the necessary resources to fuel the next segment of your continuing exodus.
