'Supreme Commander' Goes Gold

by Rainier on Jan. 18, 2007 @ 3:11 a.m. PST

Supreme Commander features a riveting, action-packed storyline, ground-breaking gameplay and genre-defining online multiplayer battles. In the 37th Century, the galaxy is torn apart by three rival factions, each vying to eradicate its enemies from the universe, end the Infinite War and become the reigning power supreme.

For a thousand years, three opposing forces have waged war for what they believe is true. There can be no room for compromise: Their way is the only way. Dubbed The Infinite War, this devastating conflict has taken its toll on a once peaceful galaxy and has only served to deepen the hatred between the factions.

After centuries of struggle, the battle for supremacy has at last reached a turning point. Under your strategic command and leadership, only one faction will reign supreme. Will you be victorious and elevate your race to domination? Or will you lead them into the hell of defeat and ultimate extinction?

Delivering one of the most advanced and innovative features of any RTS game, Supreme Commander establishes a breathtaking new standard for sheer scope and scale of gameplay. Massive battles unfold across maps of unparalleled size and scope and thousands of units fight to the bitter end.

"Supreme Commander is pushing the boundaries with its massive size and scale, delivering an innovative gameplay experience that advances the genre tremendously," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president of worldwide publishing, THQ. "THQ is leading the industry in strategy games, and on February 20th gamers everywhere will be able to experience the ultimate in strategic conquest."

In the 37th century the galaxy has been ripped apart by three warring factions, each vying to eradicate the universe of all opposition and end the 1000 year Infinite War. The next generation world of Supreme Commander brings an all new level of scope and scale to the RTS genre, establishing a new benchmark in strategic and tactical RTS gaming. Experience a new level of control over countless land, sea and air units, and use the innovative zoom function -- scrolling outward to see the entire Theatre of War or inward to focus on the action -- to command your forces to victory.

"Supreme Commander delivers the first-ever full Theatre of War zoom function, adding tremendous depth to the three story-driven campaigns and highly addictive multiplayer," said Chris Taylor, creative director and CEO, Gas Powered Games. "We've taken RTS gameplay to a whole new level and I can't wait for fans to get their hands on it."

Features :

  • Witness tiny assault bots get crushed underfoot by towering mega units, or watch as smaller attack bombers try in desperation to bring down a gigantic experimental unit.
  • Concentrate on individual ground battles or zoom all the way out in a single, seamless motion that reveals the full theatre of war. Plan and unleash multiple strategic attacks from this strategic vantage point.
  • Dominate your enemies by coordinating strategic ground, naval and air attacks. Initiate a crippling air strike with your attack bombers and support them with a ground assault of heavy and light artillery that demolish the opposing faction's main base. Exterminate your foes once and for all by sinking their aircraft carriers with a surprise submarine attack

Supreme Commander is scheduled to ship to retail outlets worldwide on February 20.
