Sins of a Solar Empire
is an award-winning RTS space battle game, and Mass Effect
is an epic action RPG universe with enough lore to fill a library. What happens when you smash the two together in the particle accelerator chamber that is a fan-created mod? You get Mass Effect: Dawn of the Reapers
, a full conversion for Sins
that lets you command ships like the Normandy against various Mass Effect
-inspired units, including those of the Geth, Volus, and Cerberus' ships as well.
There's lots more planned for the mod, including even more races and ships designed straight
from Bioware's epic series. Unfortunately, the mod itself isn't available to the public just yet, and the release of Mass Effect 3 pushed it back
for some more lore and spec tweaks. Still, when it's available it will work with both Sins
expansion and the standalone Rebellion
version as well.
