In this game you will take control of the TEC (Trader Emergency Coalition) the survival of which has been threatened by the Vasari Empire. But, furthermore, the Advent, a race that was previously thrown out of the coalition, has come back in search of vengeance. That is how the plot behind the game starts off.
At the beginning of the game you will receive a small tutorial that will show you how to handle the interface and the movements, but the real strategy will be up to you. Once you are in control of your faction, the galaxy will have no limits. You will be able to go wherever you want and face the enemies that you want (even space pirates). Nevertheless, you have to take into account that the resources are limited and the time that you will need to create you army will be valuable.
Glass, credits and metal are the three materials that you will have to gather, even though bureaucracy will also play an important role in the war.
All in all, controlling the universe will be in your hands thanks to Sins of a Solar Empire.
