Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Celebrates 5 Year Anniversary with v1.9 Update and 3-Day Steam Sale
Plymouth, MI. April 4, 2017 - Stardock and Ironclad Games released a v1.9 update for the popular RT4X Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion today. This major update coincides with the 5-year anniversary of the series and has made significant changes to the game engine, AI, graphics systems, and more.

"This is what I call the 'modernization update'," said Blair Fraser, producer for the Sins of a Solar Empire series. "My primary goal was to create a 4k remastering that thrives being played on modern gaming rigs. We are thrilled to deliver the best Sins: Rebellion yet."

With the latest upgrade the game engine can now access twice the previous memory allowing for improved rendering, extreme textures, and more content. Modders can now focus on their creations instead of worrying about reaching the previous limit. Every existing mod will now benefit from all the rendering and performance improvements automatically.

Highlights include:

Improved rendering for 4K with extreme textures, shadows, and more
Scaleable User Interface for 4K monitors
Improved modding capabilities
Refined AI for better gameplay
Free update

Numerous performance enhancements make for better battles and a better late game experience. Adjustments to the AI make for more challenging and engaging gameplay overall, and support for user interface scaling has the game looking its best ever.

v1.9 is free and now available for owners of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. Non-owners can take advantage of an anniversary sale from April 4 - 6 and save 75% off of the base game on Steam or Stardock. For more information, please visit .
