With the impending release of Sins of a Solar Empire :Diplomacy
expansion pack (excuse me, "micro expansion pack") it was only a matter of time before Stardock bundled the series into one big package of RTS goodness. They did that today with the announcement of Sins of a Solar Empire - Trinity
which will include both the Entrenchment and Diplomacy packs in one convenient $39.99 bundle.
The series is pretty awesome (Tyler loved
it) and this is a pretty good deal. The only downside is that you'll have to wait until Feb 9, 2010 to get your hands on the deal. Of course if you pre-order
it you'll get access to the Diplomacy beta so it's not a complete wash if you want to get this for the RTS fan in your life for the holidays.
SINS OF A SOLAR EMPIRE - TRINITY ANNOUNCED
December 9, 2009 - Ironclad Games and Stardock Entertainment are pleased to announce Sins of a Solar Empire - Trinity today. Trinity is a compilation bundle which includes the award-winning Sins of a Solar Empire along with the Entrenchment and Diplomacy micro-expansions. As a special incentive, those who pre-order Trinity will gain access to the current Diplomacy beta via Impulse (www.impulsedriven.com).
Sins of a Solar Empire - Trinity takes players through 25 years of warfare beginning with the real-time strategy game that started it all. In Sins of a Solar Empire, the independent Trader Worlds are forced to unite in order to defend themselves from the alien Vasari menace and the return of their exiled brethren, the Advent. The Entrenchment expansion jumps forward 15 years to a time of stalemate between the factions when they fortify the territories they control with powerful starbases, mine fields and advanced defenses. Diplomacy takes the player to the current day, when the constraint toil of war has taken its heavy toll. Some speak of peace, while others see such initiatives as openings to destroy their enemies through subtler means.
Sins of a Solar Empire - Trinity is scheduled for release on February 9, 2010 and can be pre-ordered digitally for $39.99 USD on Impulse (www.impulsedriven.com). The game will also be available at retail stores throughout North America on release. For more information please visit: http://www.impulsedriven.com/products/ESD-SDE-W006.
