Many believed the death of Palpatine would mean the end of the war, and the return of the democratic government of the time before the Clone Wars. Instead, the Battle of Endor has left a fractured Empire, with multiple Warlords attempting to carve out sections of the galaxy to form their own personal empires and restore the Empire to its former glory.

Many believed the death of Palpatine would mean the end of the war, and the return of the democratic government of the time before the Clone Wars. Instead, the Battle of Endor has left a fractured Empire, with multiple Warlords attempting to carve out sections of the galaxy to form their own personal empires and restore the Empire to its former glory. In the wake of the Empire's collapse, the fledgling New Republic is working to build an entirely new order out of the wreckage. Meanwhile, on the edges of the galaxy, the Empire of the Hand, set up by Thrawn during his exile in the unknown regions with the covert support of the Chiss Ascendancy and Emperor Palpatine, strives to unite the galaxy in preparation to face outside threats...


From the creators of Thrawn's Revenge: Imperial Civil War for Star Wars: Empire at War comes Star Wars: Ascendancy, a mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.

Take command of the New Republic, Imperial Remnant and Empire of the Hand in order to gain control of the Star Wars galaxy after the fall of the Emperor at Endor. Each faction features its own unique new unit rosters, tech trees, advantages and disadvantages. Will you use diplomacy to spread your message of democracy and support your fleet with aid from other galactic powers as the New Republic, take advantage of the speed and vast information archives of the Empire of the Hand, or crush those who would oppose you with the superweapons of the Empire?

Work on the mod is already well underway. In order to track our progress, you can follow the mod on Mod Database, or join the discussions on our forums.

We currently have a thread running with some answers for basic questions, available here.

Awesome. So, am I understanding right that diplomacy will play a factor in Ascendancy? Does this have something to do with the "aid from other galactic powers"?

i think they just mean that since rebellion includes diplomacy stuff, that if you get high enough reputation with another empire they will send support ships to help you sometimes. that is my guess, dont know if they are making a more advanced support system

I'd answer but the whole factional styles thing will be addressed more thoroughly in future updates.

I Loved the SOGE mod. Now they have some Competition. Can't wait to see the differences between both mods.

Non-playable factions were a large part of our previous mod largely inspired by the Total War series, so while we're mostly focusing on the 3 main playable factions for now, we definitely want to diversify in the future.
