It's been a closely guarded secret but today Petroglyph can announce to fans of Empire at War: Forces of Corruption that they CAN use the dreaded Eclipse Stardestroyer in either campaign or Multiplayer modes.

To activate it, you need to complete the following in the order below.

Firstly, complete the Rebel Alliance campaign on MEDIUM level.
Secondly, complete the Zann Consortium campaign on EASY level.
Lastly, complete the Imperial Campaign on HARD level.

Once you have completed the following, you can then press the ` key (next to the number one) and a console will appear.

You then type in the following (no caps) what a neat trick
Hit enter and the Imperial March will sound, giving you access to the Eclipse.

I've been spending the best part of today finishing the Rebel campaign and started on the Zann one.

good luck!

Is that the big news that was promised? Not to sound ungrateful, but it's a bit of an anti-climax, particularly for those of us who only have EaW. If it isn't the 'big news' then just ignore this post.

*cough* April's Fools *cough*

Nice try, DMUK, but I know enough to know that isn't going to work.

Well, today :p
There's got to be a first time for everything.

I can't say for sure of course, but I reason this is such a case. And I'm not the only one ;)

Or maybe you did get this from someone at Petroglyph, in which case you are the victim of their joke as well. However, the fact that this hasn't been posted by Petroglyph at their own forums, also leads me to believe it's not real.

Actually, my favourite one was where I announced that the Clone expansion had been cancelled for Galactic Battlegrounds! LOL

I'm such a sucker. It wasn't April 1st yet when I read this.

Hehe, nice one, DMUK. :D

The best April fools prank still is the MASWG though back in 2003.

Boy, did that one turn up the heat for some. :D
Check it out (http://www.swgalaxies.net/maswg/fooled.html) :p

Eh, you could've come up with something better. But maybe you got a couple people frantically trying to beat the game as various factions--though you seem to have forgotten that there was only one campaign!

My favorite April Fool's jokes on the internet definitely come from blizzard.com.

My original idea I had....a new RTS with FPS gameplay had to be canned because Vista crashed and lost all those images i found and created.

Still, the one i did last year was very close to what actually happened lol

Oh yeah, April fool's, completely forgot about that. Then again, I have an excuse, being rather sick at the moment. :(

DMUK - I don't recall that prank with the GBG Clone Campaigns, though I do remember my prank a year or two ago when I posted an 'official' LA statement saying that there would be a Clone Wars expansion for EaW.
