Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion was released all the way back in 2012 by Stardock Entertainment, and today it's celebrating the 5th anniversary by releasing Update v1.9 with a price drop of over 75% on Steam, taking it from £29.99 to £7.50.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Update v1.9 is all about modernizing the game to bring it up to today's standards, with improvements to the game's engine, AI, and graphics systems, which allows Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion to be played in 4K.
Here's the list of features and major changes that are included inUpdate v1.9:
Sins: Rebellion gets a face lift in v1.9! The improvements to the memory system have allowed for a new "Extreme" texture setting that makes the game look better than ever. The difference is noticeable in everything from the ships and the planets all the way to shadow rendering. The UI will look incredible on 4K monitors now thanks to user interface scaling.
Concern yourself with space battles instead of space restrictions! Previously, Sins: Rebellion's 32-bit process was unable to exceed 2 GB of RAM usage. New adjustments in v1.9 allows the game to use up to 4 GB of RAM, which reduces crashes and lets modders focus on their creations instead of worrying about hitting the 32-bit limit. Any mods that already exist will benefit from the engine improvements with an overall better look and performance.
Late Game Optimizations
Reduced stuttering and lag during late game battles let you focus on the fight! The game's AI has also received some updates, making for more interesting challenges and gameplay.
