Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Gets First DLC Pack ‘Forbidden Worlds’

I’ve got some good news for you if you’re a fan of Stardock Entertainment and Ironclad Games’ Sins of a Solar Empire. It seems that the latest standalone expansion for the game – Rebellion – is getting its very first DLC pack.

The Forbidden Worlds DLC pack will be coming out on the 5th of June and adds four new planet types that can be colonized. It also includes a new planet specialization system where you classify your worlds as either beacons of industry or society, 15 new research subjects, 40 new planetary bonuses and a handful of new achievements, all for $5.

“The war between the loyalists and the rebels within the TEC, Advent and Vasari continues within the depths of Trader Space.” Says the official website, “The need to survive forces each to expand into the unknown, discovering worlds of hazard, wealth, risk, and mystery. Most ominously, the Trader factions have been loathe to expand to these worlds due to the dark myths that surround them.”

Sins of a Solar Empire is a critically acclaimed 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate) strategy game that takes place in outer space. It was initially released in 2008 but has had three expansions since then; Entrenchment 2009, Diplomacy in 2010, and Rebellion in 2012.
