Take control of one of three space-faring races as you work to establish your dominance of the galaxy in Sins of a Solar Empire. Through a combination of diplomacy, economic savvy, the spread of culture and of course sheer brute force and victory on the battlefield you will establish order over your corner of the galaxy.

Hundreds of ships on-screen at once, engaged in epic battle.
Up to 10,000 particles (explosions, missiles, laser blasts etc.) on the screen at once in full-out combat.
Seamless zoom-in and zoom-out from looking at a one-man space fighter, to viewing your entire empire spanning billions of kilometers of space.
