Ironclad announces Sins of a Dark Age

Sins of a Solar Empire developer Ironclad Games’ next has stepped into the light. Called Sins of a Dark Age, the new “hybrid RTS” is, despite its name, not related Solar Empire.

Sins of a Dark Age is something totally unique in the strategy genre,” Blair Fraser, co-founder and producer at Ironclad, says.

“Like Sins of a Solar Empire, which blended 4x with real-time strategy, we’ve taken our favorite elements of traditional RTS and action RTS and added our own twists and turns that result in a completely new and unrivalled strategy experience.”

An FAQ on the official site answers a great many questions.

There’s no date for the game yet, though it’s scheduled for 2012. A beta will commence this summer.
