Four Sins of a Solar Empire Add-ons Planned

Kalypso Media Announces their involvement in publishing upcoming add-ons for Sins of a Solar Empire in Europe, revealing there are three unannounced expansions to follow the first one due later this year (Entrenchment, which is not mentioned by name in the announcement). There are no specifics on these additional add-ons for the 4X strategy game, which are mentioned in passing here: "Kalypso Media have today announced they will be publishing 4 Add On packs for the hit space strategy PC game Sins of a Solar Empire. The first of these Add On packs will be published in Q4 2008 for £7.99 and available via download from Impulse."

I was really excited about the mini-expansions, until I read a quote in the Stardock 2008 report which reads:

"If a game ships and there’s some bug found that materially affects gameplay, then sure, put out a patch wherever. However, we’ve had users complain loudly that Sins of a Solar Empire v1.1 (essentially a free expansion pack) requires Impulse to download."

You can read the changelog for 1.1 here:

Since when are balance changes and minor optimizations considered "essentially a free expansion pack"? Not very reassuring.
