Don't every say Ironclad Games never did nothin' for ya: the 1.1 patch for space strategy game Sins of A Solar Empire: Rebellion has gone live, and with it brought over 40 new maps, plus the expected fixes.
It's said the maps include "competitive multiplayer variants which normalize resources, militia and other factors" -- hit the source for a full list of names and types, if you're curious.
As for the fixes, these all appear to be either minor changes or balancing tweaks, with the exception of the Steam Cloud fix (it should now work as normal for multiplayer). Again, hit the source if you're curious on the details.
Those worried about save games can put their mind at ease: this new version of the game is save compatible with the last version.
Boot Steam now to update.
