Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption (often abbreviated as FoC) is an expansion and sequel to Star Wars: Empire at War. The expansion adds many new maps and units, as well as an additional storyline revolving around the new faction, the Zann Consortium, owned by Tyber Zann. The expansion also brought new types of gameplay. It was released on October 24, 2006 in North America and was re-released in the Gold pack with the original Star Wars: Empire at War and concept art.
The campaign is similar in structure to the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire campaign in the first Empire at War game but this time it follows the story of the intergalactic crime lord, Tyber Zann, and his organization, the Zann Consortium. It is set between the events of the destruction of the first and second Death Star and ends just after the theft of the Eclipse-class super star destroyer by the consortium. Tyber Zann corrupts planets with his Defilers in order to obtain information, credits and to sabotage enemy structures.
Galactic Conquest gameplay remains very similar to the original Star Wars: Empire at War with a few differences. The Zann Consortium's Corruption ability provides bonuses to all factions in addition to the benefits provided to the Zann Consortium. The cost of recruiting Cantina units and deploying bounty hunters to neutralize heroes is lower on corrupted planets. The Rebel smugglers do not expire on corrupted worlds. Other than these changes and new units and heroes, there are no large differences to Galactic Conquest mode.
The original Death Star no longer appears, as it was destroyed, and has been replaced by the second Death Star. Red Squadron has also been removed and is replaced by Rogue Squadron.
Galactic Conquest SkirmishesEdit
When a planet is attacked all forces in the system or on the planet are under the control of the defender, all of the invading troops and ships are under the control of the attacker. The game is basically the same as a normal skirmish except from a few differences such as the ability to retreat from battle and the fact that new troops cannot be recruited during battle. Credits also stop increasing in a steady flow and indigenous populations will take part in the fight.
Land skirmishes now have metal outposts that can have various things built on. Outposts are captured like buildpads and can be destroyed. Once captured, outposts can be used to build one of 3 structures, depending on the faction. All factions can buy the Mining Facility and Hutt Palace. The last option is faction specific. The Zann consortium gets the Repulsorlift Jammer, the Rebellion gets an Uplink Station and the Empire gets the option to build a Magnapulse Cannon.
Space skirmishes have basically stayed the same as the previous game, other then the new factions space station there are no differences.

Overall the reaction was positive however the biggest criticism was the amount of bugs in the game, this could be due to rushing to finish games, as suspected of Star Wars: Battlefront and Star Wars: Battlefront II
