The factions have split in two as rebellion has broke out from within. You also gain all the features from Trinity. Each subfaction is also granted different techs to encourage different play styles from the factions. The factions also unlock the new corvette class frigate and the mighty titan to lead their fleets into battle.
New Titan-class ships
Six massive Titans enter the fray - each with upgradable special abilities - give loyalist and rebel factions a late-game way to eliminate powerful foes or overpower an enemy fleet.
New Capital Ships
Three new capital ships bring immediate options to the table, offering even greater strategic depth while existing capital ships have been rebalanced for their roles.
New Corvette-class ships
New corvette class ships use their enhanced speed and maneuverability to weave through the battlefield, inflicting damage to enemy ships’ systems.
Each subfaction(Loyalist or Rebel) is given new technologies that are only accessable to them.
Additonal Capital Ship Ability Levels
Additional capital ship ability levels, for greater strategic choice.
Play through 6 new Scenarios designed to give players of all ages a good time. (Players of all ages are yet to find these 6 scenarios, though. A map pack is rumored to be in the works, but no new maps were released with Rebellion.)
AI enhancements make single-player games more fun and challenging than ever.
Updated graphics bring Sins of a Solar Empire to life as never before, with new particle effects, enhanced textures, and improved shading.
