Eidos Interactive has released a new screenshot from its upcoming strategy game Republic: The Revolution. The new screen shows off a complete day-night cycle in a series of twelve shots. Some of the game's real-time cloud effects can be seen as well.
Republic is set during the fall of the Soviet Union. In the game, players assume the role of a politician in a fictional former-Soviet republic that declares its independence. The goal is to rise to power by forming relationships with other key political figures, and then take control of the nation through military force, religion, organized crime, or other means.
Republic features an advanced 3D engine that models the entire nation, complete with thousands of inhabitants. It is in development at Elixir Studios, and it is scheduled for release in mid-2002. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
