The development team at Stardock announces that it has launched the first major update for their strategy game Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, labeled 1.1, which makes a number of changes to the core game systems, while also including a range of new maps for players to try out.

The new maps are mainly competitive multiplayer variants for those already included in the base release.

Entirely new ones are: Battle Lines, Blitz, Crystal Storm, Empires at War, Fractured Lands, Gemini, Hostile Orbits, New Dawn, The Void.

The other changes introduced in the 1.1 patch for Sins of a Solar Empire are designed to make the experience more balanced and the ones that probably will have the biggest impact are linked to pirates and their costs.
