Default Sins of a Solar Empire

Anyone else interested in this one? Should be out in Feb 2008 with any luck.

Combination of 4x and RTS.

Sins of a Solar Empire

There are some images and vids here:

I've been drooling over it for at least a year, now, since .61 beta. I decided to wait until it was finished to play it though, because I have this problem where I play the hell out of a game in beta, and then don't play it at all when it launches. 19 days now, right?

I did some of the beta testing, but forced myself to stop playing now for a few months so that the game will be fresh and fun at release. I'm _really_ looking forward to this.

good stuff. In the beta, did you play anyone from overseas? I'm wondering how online 1vs1 or larger will be playing from Australia against Nth american opponents would be like.

I'm going to pre-order (costs 35 bucks effectively) on stardock.. then maybe try a bit of the beta out to get a feel for the game prior to release.

edit: just bought the game (pre-order, 35 bucks, digital download). Means I can also play the beta until release.

First I've seen of this, looks very nice. I tend to steer away from RTS games but I make a few exceptions for the good ones.

sins has gone gold!

I've been playing beta4 - and it is quite addictive. Games take a while to play out, so thankfully there is a save feature for mp games. Good for gaming with mates.

Sorry for Double post, but sins of a solar empire has been released. I got my download version yesterday (just under 1gb) and it includes new maps and content already. Yey for stardock's method of avoiding piracy - lots of extra content releases that are tied to an account/key when you log into their website. No invasive DRM.

I will probably write some sort of review for the game... I've been playing it for a few days now and I've got mixed feelings about it. Probably more good than bad, though.
