Star Wars: Empire at War – Forces of Corruption is an expansion pack created for another RTS (real-time strategy) game which is Star Wars: Empire at War. The expansion pack was first released in 2006. A new faction, called Zann Consortium, is included in the expansion pack. The new faction does not belong to good or evil sides, but the group will do anything to gain profit. The Zann Consortium is a crime syndicate group that is capable of taking over planets. The expansion pack features galactic conquests, skirmishes, and multiplayer gameplay. Aside from new maps, the game also features new rebel land units (rebel mobile defense unit and the gallofree heave troop transport), space units (MC30 frigate and b-wing), and heroes (Yoda and Luke Skywalker).
The game’s storyline starts before the Battle of Yavin. At the start of the game, players must go through the tutorial mission in order to see the game’s main plot and get background information on the storyline. Players have the option to go into battle as part of Galactic Empire or the Rebel Alliance. New game tactics are included in the game, too. These are part of the corruption theme which includes bribery, piracy, kidnapping, and racketeering.
