If you’re a fan of the planet colonization and space warfare RTS Sins of a Solar Empire, you’ll likely be thrilled to know that its latest micro-expansion is now available to be pre-ordered for $9.95. This pack will expand the current game with the new Diplomacy tech tree (imagine that), new envoy cruisers, trade pacts, a new relationship system, the ability to give missions to other players and deadlier pirate factions. All this was brought about by the desire of the various factions in the game to come to some sort of peace after years of war.
You’ll need the original game plus the first expansion to even begin the transaction process to pre-order Diplomacy. For more information on the new expansion and the game in general, you can check out its official site. Sins of a Solar Empire: Diplomacy will be available for play on February 9, 2010. May the fastest planet colonizer win!
