The retail version of Sins of a Solar Empire
is finally available for you to purchase in stores or download from TotalGaming.Net
. The game is a nice mix of 4X space conquest (ala Galactic Civilization II) and real time strategy game. It sounds like an odd combination but the game is a blast to play and the scope of the game is just amazing. I've been playing the beta off and on for the last few months and the game is terribly addictive (even though I'm not that good at it). If you're worried about having to micromanage a lot of stuff then be safe in the knowledge that the game does handle a lot of that stuff for you. Well worth it if you like good PC strategy games.
Sins of a Solar Empire Now Available at Retail
- New PC strategy title hits retail shelves -
PLYMOUTH, MI – FEBRUARY 5, 2008 -- Sins of a Solar Empire launched its retail availability today. Sins of a Solar Empire is the much anticipated PC real-time strategy game that combines the kind of depth normally seen in traditional turn-based strategy games with real-time game play. Players take on the role of leader of one of three races (Humans, Vasari, or Advent) for domination of the galaxy.
The game features stunning graphics, epic single player strategy gaming, and an outstanding multiplayer experience on the LAN or over the Internet. Early adopters have described the game as everything from “a successor to Homeworld” to “Kohan and Master of Orion 2 combined” to “Total Annihilation in space.” What makes Sins of a Solar Empire truly unique is its unrivaled scale: Players can manage an entire empire or zoom in on individual freighters delivering cargo to distant trade ports.
The game began its retail availability today for $39.95 at Best Buy at 2pm EST and is expected to be available at most retail outlets by the end of this week. Users can also order and download the Collector’s Edition for $49.95 from www.sinsofasolarempire.com.
The game requires Windows XP or Windows Vista and a video card with at least 128MB of video memory.
