NEW DLC for Sins of a Solar Empire: REBELLION® – MINOR FACTIONS

With the conflict between the TEC, Advent, and Vasari creating rifts within each civilization, the galaxy has become less stable than ever. With resources dwindling and time running out, every advantage must be exploited….

For the first time ever, add a whole new dimension of strategy with Minor Factions. Compete against your enemies to exert control over upstart forces that have emerged outside the boundaries of the great powers. Crush them if you desire, but it might be wiser to let your diplomatic envoys persuade them to join your cause – their unique capabilities may prove to be the difference between victory and defeat.

Features:

“Minor Factions” Gameplay Option – Enable the spawning of minor factions! Each game will place a number of minor factions onto the map to expand your strategic and tactical options.

15 new minor factions – Send envoys to persuade minor factions to join your empire and cultivate their unique abilities and advantages. Minor Factions include:

Nilari Cultists: These fanatical Advent cultists command waves of suicidal martyrs, sacrifice their people for devastating effects, and indoctrinate nearby populations to accelerate their cause. Be careful, though – with the end being near, they don’t always discriminate between friend and foe, and it won’t matter whether you’ve won them to your side or not!

Viturak Transport Cabal: Vasari technology is notoriously difficult to get ahold of. Contact the Cabal to gain access to black market Vasari travel tech, including phase engine improvements and the ability to execute covert raids. If they let you into the back room, you may even find yourself with a stolen Antorak Marauder that you could pair with their local phase stabilizer…

Grost Scrappers Union: Credits don’t discriminate, and neither does this faction! These underground human entrepreneurs accept payment from anyone. If you need an armor retrofit, a quick field repair, a great deal on resources, or even a place to convert those obsolete frigates into profitable scrap – these are your guys!

12 additional minor factions: Each faction provides abilities and advantages unique to their theme and role, including mercenaries, xenophobes, pacifists, used ship dealers, demolition experts, resource miners, resistance fighters, arms dealers and more!

Expand your strategic options and gameplay depth with the Minor Factions DLC today!

NEW DLC for Sins of a Solar Empire: REBELLION® – OUTLAW SECTORS


Challenge yourself with new strategies and unique setups with the new “Outlaw Sectors” gameplay option and brand new maps. The variety of map sizes and designs will let you enjoy any kind of match you want, from intimate 1v1 duels all the way to epic 10-player brawls.

Smuggling Specialization: Choose this planetary development to grab a cut of everyone’s trade
income – but at a cost. The increased corruption from this black market activity will reduce that planet’s tax income.

Rampant Militias: Autonomous planetary militias will grow, raid nearby systems, and repopulate over time. Use them to help defend your worlds, or coordinate your attacks with their strikes for maximum impact.

Pirate Turf: Vicious when in their home sector, pirates can now raid multiple players simultaneously, drastically changing the art of the bidding war. And, just to make sure they are fully motivated to do what they do best, all credits spent on bounties will receive an automatic bonus.

New Maps: Power Struggle, Slim Pickings Crossfire, High Stakes, Ironheart, Titans of Cimtar, Death Spiral, Dogfight, Buzzsaw, Rising Empires, and Desolation.
