New Star Wars game...
PC players now have the opportunity to control the fate of the galaxy in the all new real-time strategy (RTS) game Star Wars Empire at War. Customers who order Empire at War will receive an exclusive mousepad with unique Empire at War art.
Set a few years before the events of A New Hope, the game lets players rewrite history as well as experience the aftermath of Revenge of the Sith, the creation of the Rebel Alliance, and Darth Vader's rise to power.
The game features beautifully rendered land and space battles set on memorable planets such as Hoth, Tatooine and Dagobah as well as never-before-seen environments taken directly from the Star Wars films and expanded universe novels. In the game, players can choose to join either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire, building and setting up tactical forces that can be unleashed on the enemy in real-time 3D. All of the gameplay and action within Star Wars Empire at War is persistent, meaning that strategic and tactical elements from previous events will have a permanent effect on the galaxy.
As players build, manage and progress their space and ground-based units, troops and vehicles, memorable Star Wars hero characters will begin playing a role in key situations. In addition to the single player campaign mode, the game includes a two-player Empire vs. Rebellion mode and up to eight player online skirmish modes.
LucasArts SKU: SWLECEAP
This will be out in 2006.
il lget it if it gets onto a x box game cosel... i hope it does....
"Pfft, Rebel scum!"
I doubt it will be an XBox title. Judging from the videos I've seen, the average XBox user would develop a serious case of RSI within minutes of playing. But this game is on my Pre-Order list alongside Quake IV and FEAR. It looks like this will be the game that finally pushes those horrible memories of Force Commander out of our heads once and for all. The space battles look extremely well thought out with the ability to target various systems of enemy ships such as the engines or shield arrays.
Finally time to crush the rebel scum. For the emperor!!
