Sins of a Solar Empire sold approx 100,000 copies over two months following its US release earlier this year and hit number one in the USA charts. Sins of a Solar Empire will be released in the UK on the 13th June for£29.99. The European retail box will contain an additional bonus of six exclusive maps, a techtree poster and a comprehensive manual:

Face Off: In this small map there's no room to manoeuvre, no way to escape.

Rush to take what few planets there are and crush your enemy quickly!

Agamemnon's Bounty: Your forces must descent upon the Agamemnon star system to compete for its rumoured riches. Only the most cunning will grasp the system's greatest rewards.

Backstab: Abnormal distortions in phase space have created strange wormholes with only one entrance in this star system. Players must expand their empires while watching their backs!

Double Cross: The fledgling empires of the Rhaego system are preparing to expand, but space is at a premium. It won't be long before battle is joined...

Triumvirate: Will your neighbour aid or hinder your conquest of the Liladi system? Choose your diplomatic posture wisely - other factions may be enlisting allies of their own.

Implosion: With few alternate paths from each empire's homeworld, the resource rich core of this large star system will become a fiercely contested battleground.

Hyperion's Gates: Resources are scarce and the races of the Hyperion Cluster struggle to be the first to reach the riches of the Atropos system. But can they overcome the guardians at the gates?

The survival of humanity stands on the edge of utter ruin as three powerful factions vie for control of the galaxy. Take command of one of three space-faring races as you work to establish your domination of the galaxy in Sins of a Solar Empire. Fighting for the survival of your entire race against relentless foes, your success will depend entirely on your ability to manage your empire and command your vast fleets of starships to victory. Through a combination of diplomacy, economic skill, cultural influence, and sheer military might you will establish order over your corner of the galaxy!
