"Sins of a Solar Empire is a great strategic game," said Blair Fraser, Co-Owner and Director of Ironclad games. "When it comes to close-in tactical play, we've got some work to do." Fraser and his brother Craig, the company's other co-owner and Creative Director, were sitting in the GameSpy offices firing up their laptop. Their visit was designed to show off the latest build of Entrenchment, the defensive oriented "mini-expansion" for Sins of a Solar Empire.
More than just a patch but less than a full-blown expansion, Entrenchment is the first of three purchasable downloads that, when completed, may be combined into a retail product. It's also the first part of what the brothers call "filling in holes and holding the line."
