Eidos Interactive sent us new screenshots from its upcoming strategy game Republic: The Revolution. The new screens show off some of the detailed 3D environments and characters that will be featured in the game.
In the game, players assume the role of a political leader in a fictional nation that declares its independence during the fall of the Soviet Union. The goal is to rise to power by forming relationships with other people in certain key positions, and then take control of the nation through military force, religion, organized crime, or other means.
Republic features a 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 2002. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
