Eidos Interactive has released a new group of screenshots from its upcoming strategy game Republic: The Revolution. The new screens show off some of the game's detailed character models and expansive 3D environments, as well as the game's real-time sky engine capabilities, with realistic views of evening and daytime skies, as well as a colorful sunset.

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.
