Maker of Star Wars: Empire at War is developing new epic real-time strategy game for the PC.
Petroglyph, the developer behind the real-time strategy game Star Wars: Empire at War, is going back to battle with a new single- and multiplayer RTS titled Universe at War: Earth Assault.. The Las Vegas-based developer--with team members who have worked on Command and Conquer and Command and Conquer: Red Alert--will be bringing the new strategy title to the PC in "autumn." Universe at War will be published by Sega.
Set in the near future, the game finds the universe in the midst of an intergalactic war where multiple alien factions are invading our home planet, and it's up to the player to stop them from taking over Earth. Players will be able to use sci-fi weaponry and alien powers to lay to waste entire cities and territories.
A multiplayer mode inspired by massively multiplayer online games will let gamers earn achievements, rewards, and medals in a "persistent online campaign" to win supremacy.
For more information, head over to the game's official Web site.
Listen up douchebags. DO NOT BUY ANY CRAP MADE BY EA Petroglyph is the the old westwood team that gave us the great C & C and redalert games. Don't give EA your hard earned money. Buy this game instead!!!!!
oooooooooo, team members who have worked on C&C: RA. can't wait to see screenshots, videos, diaries... and proper ID of the supposed former C&C: RA people. were they in development? production? janitors?
If there's a RTS to outrun Star Craft, this may be the one. Supreme Commander is just a remake of a 1996 mediocre game with enhanced graphics and tweaked interface. Flame me for telling the thruth.
There's about 10 Sci-Fi RTS's coming out on PC this year, no more than two will be successful. As long as we get fewer and fewer genres in PC gaming, the sooner we are going to have a crisis in this slowly disappearing gaming format....!
I'm not much for Star Wars videogames. I always thought that the best movies should stick with the movies and not just make mediocre videogames, but maybe this one will suprise us. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
LOOKED AT SOME PICKS THE GAME IS BORING LOOKING THE GRAPHICS ENGINE IS OLD LOOKING PROBABLY TO SUPPORT DEFORMABLE TERRIAN, BUT ALAS COMPANY OF HEROES LOOKED BEAUTIFUL AND HAD GREAT DESTRUCTABILITY.
BATTLE FOR MIDDLE EARTH TWO WAS NOT A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A rts GAME IT WAS A DECENT lotr GAME BUT AS A rts IT WAS PLIAN UNBALANCED AND GLITCHY, REFLECTING THE TRUE NATURE OF THE ea DEV TEAMS.
THE DEFORMABLE TERIAN SOUNDS GOOD BUT HOW MANY GAMES HAVE PROMISED THAT, AND THE mmo RTS IS A AGE OF EMPIRES THREE TRAITE THAT WAS INTERESTING BUT NOT ENOUGH. I WOULD LOVE ANOTHER GREAT rts BUT THIS ONE SOUNDS VANILLA.
so this will be released what, around 8 months SC? SC = Supreme Commander, after which release every other RTS slated release should be dated accordingly, ending with 'SC' lol for example, "C&C3: Kasavin's Revenge was released in 1 SC."
Awesome, a game which no one hyped( at least yet) and from the makers of C&Cand EaW, it has good chances oh being a good game. About xbox version: Are you crazy? Who can play strategy on a controller? Anyway why don't make it PC only, there are games marked "XBOX360 only".....
console peeps just need to get a good PC.. ull be playing games awsome graphics, physics, mods, free online (unlessmmo) so y not try PC for once.. You are typing on a PC....
You really pushed the boat out with this announcement guys... heh. http://www.petroglyphgames.com/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=2172&view=findpost&p=30918
AnarchicGoth, I agree. My comp can't do new games now. (I blame dell for that) But I might be able to upgrade it so i can do PC.
http://www.petrolution.net/ then u must see this , another 6 screenshot not shown in IGN
Awesome I'm going to check this out for sure. Also you Console guys need to shut up some games are going to be PC only, its no ones fault buy your own if you have some crappy comp that can't play games.
its only on pc =crap to me make it a ps3 game and i might get it if gamespot gives it a good score that is
Kick Ass! I read on the Petroglyph forums Universe at War will have a traditional base building system during tactical combat. wOOt! Also, I read that you will be able to customize the weapons on hard points for the larger vehicles, more kick ass! We get Sup Com at the begining of the year and UAW: Earth Assault towards the end of the year. Me Like... http://www.petroglyphgames.com/forums
This article forgot to mention that every unit will be custumizable on the fly, having hard points for future weapon upgrades to meet every situation. Also there won't be any standard units that all 3 factions have, such as a medium tank. Combine Chromehound's multiplayer with Dawn of War: DC's singleplayer campaign map and you have an idea what I think this game's multiplayer will look like. Although the map will be Earth instead of Kronos. You can expect the makers of the C&C Universe will have a really good story as to why multiple alien races are fighting each other on planet earth with very few humans still alive.
lol, some company just wants to bring out a new game and all of you starts whining for a new starcraft? doesnt make any sense. Anyways lets see a trailer for this first.
Wow, with the teams from the C&C universe AND Empire at War, this should be a great game...guess I will be waiting for a while since I am from UK :(
