VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada - 7th October, 2005 - Independent developer Ironclad Games today unveiled its flagship real-time space strategy title, Sins of a Solar Empire.

Unfolding the fate of three unique factions, Sins of a Solar Empire is the first chapter in an epic science fiction saga:

"The independent Trader Worlds must unite to defend themselves against the return of their exiled brethren - 'The Advent' and the arrival of the desperate remnants of the ancient Vasari Empire."

With formidable fleets of starships, players will explore and conquer nearby planets and distant solar systems by applying brute force, cunning strategy, elegant diplomacy, economic mastery, and researched technology. Battle hardened capital ships advance in level, improving their core offensive and defensive systems, and unlocking their unique abilities. From research facilities to weapons platforms, planetary structures built on land and in orbit add to their planet's strategic and economic value.

Powered by Ironclad's proprietary Iron EngineTM and the Forge Tool SuiteTM, a galaxy of intriguing aliens, powerful starships, and colossal planets comes to life with stunning 3D graphics, unparalleled sense of scale, and a cinematic musical score. Up to ten players can battle for galactic supremacy on IroncladOnlineTM, the company's upcoming matchmaking, player ranking and statistics tracking service.

Sins of a Solar Empire is in its last stages of development and will soon be entering closed-beta. Ironclad Games is seeking a publishing and distribution partner for this near complete title.
