Preorder Earth 2160, go retro with Earth 2150
Midway launches new Web site, preorder campaign for Reality Pump's futuristic PC RTS.
There's good news for gamers eager to play Midway's new real-time strategy PC game Earth 2160, but confusion as to why it takes place on Mars. Customers who preorder Earth 2160 will receive a bonus DVD with eight additional maps, the Earth 2160 soundtrack, and the full version of Earth 2150 and its expansion packs, which should provide a proper bridge explaining what happened between 2150 (when there still is an Earth), and 2160 (when there is not).
Midway also launched the game's American Web site today, complete with a video recapping the next 155 years of humanity's self-destruction, available units and factions in the game, and a slew of screenshots. Earth 2160 is being developed by Poland-based Reality Pump. The studio's previous body of work includes real-time strategy games World War III: Black Gold and Once Upon a Knight. Earth 2160 is rated T for Teen and will retail for $39.99 when it's released November 8. Take a look at GameSpot's recent developer Q&A for more.
