The epic real-time strategy game Supreme Commander was released earlier this year, and brought with it gigantic battlegrounds on land, sea, and air. These big battles are about to get bigger with the Forged Alliance expansion pack, which will add a brand-new playable faction and upgrades and updates for the game's existing three factions, and we've got the details on what's in store for the Cybran Nation here. The expansion is scheduled to ship later this year.
