Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Sets Digital Sales Record, Throws Down on Retail

We really liked Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.  And it looks like we weren't alone.  Stardock have announced that the game has sold over 100,000 copies via digital distribution channels.  The publisher was previously worried that Steam might have cannabalized their direct sales of the game, but instead, saw it only supplement them.  Obviously with direct sales Stardock is getting a larger piece of the financial pie, so they wouldn't want to cut into that.  Thankfully this looks like an everybody wins situation.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Co-Op Review

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is the stand alone expansion to the real time strategy behemoth that debuted in early 2008. Rebellion brings an immense amount of content to the award winning game and is the perfect starting point for new players in the Sins universe since it contains everything from the Sins universe up until this point. Rebellion comes in at a perfect time to inject some life back into Sins and jettison pilots new and old into one of the best strategy games of its time.

Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion Hands on Impressions

If you've never played a Sins of a Solar Empire game, it's probably a bit daunting to hear that a single level can take days to complete.  That's part of the charm that is this 4x strategy game.  Decisions you make echo throughout your entire gameplay session.  While the first Sins game focused entirely on combat, and the expansion added diplomacy to the mix - the upcoming Rebellion takes things a step further adding research victories as well as some alternates like last flagship standing, last capital and others.
