Without more, the teaser trailer (advanced by IGN).
Now, news about the Pre-order. Rebellion was already available for pre-order, but now Stardock and Ironclad Games have announced that owners of the previous expansion: Diplomacy or of the Trinity bundle, may benefit from a reduced pre-order price of $29.99 USD (which is 10$ off regular price). As it seems the discount “will only be available for a limited time”, which indices that Rebellion’s release may not be for so soon. They have also announced that the pre-order can be activated at Steam (although I’m not sure how this works at this moment. Will they email a steam key at release day?).
Stardock also informs that the “price has automatically been adjusted” for people who have already pre-purchased Rebellion, and that you only need to “check your pre-order status on the account page (…) you do not need to re-purchase”.
About the release date, Stardock has not been precise about it (again) and has recently reinforced it as “coming 2012” (in the trailer) or “2012 launch of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion” (in the sins forums). In fact there has been no news whatsoever about the beta, so, everything leads to believe that release will not happen so soon. My best guess is spring 2012.
See some Rebellion’s screenshots here. You also have a review of Sins of Solar Empire: Trinity (the previous installments bundle). Sins Trinity is highly recommended by Space Sector (as you can see by the review score).Subscribe RSS
