early game info

Once I have sorted out these forums (what a pain!) I will be uploading some game information.

The screenshots I have seen look amazing and this is really set to become the first RTS of its kind to offer ground and space battles in 3-d!

Just a question what was actually wrong with the other ones?


I AM the prophet of the truth the protector of Star Wars Truism

Star Wars Truism by it's very nature is eternal and will outlive Star Wars Purism

Everything I say is a lie for the Truth is always greater than the words we use to describe it

Do you have any last words?

Nothing wrong with Galactic Battles.com forums. With the arrival of the new game, it seems a better idea to introduce new forums. However, GB.com will become the new RTS central for the LFN Network

Patience, patience.

LucasArts have't even gone out with a press release on it yet as far as I've seen.

In the meanwhile though, here's the cover of the Febuary issue of PC Zone UK (thanks to Pad for pointing it out )

I have screenshots from PC ZONE mag, but until i get my hands on a decent scanner - they wont be any good.

However, rest assured, Empire At War is shaping up to be the BEST RTS OF ALL TIME!

Screens are amazing and by the weekend, i will have an early preview and once Lucasarts are back at work after Xmas, I will be after screens and much much more.

GB.com WILL be the BEST place for the latest news for the new game!

C&C: two sides, yet widely regarded as a masterpiece. Same for Red Alert.

Warcraft 1 and 2: Two factions, yet widely regarded as masterpieces.

So please stop spamming every thread about there only being to sides!

Raven - i've never played Warcraft, but remember that the C&C seies is very old, so they probably couldnt put any more than two civs in. Also, i'm not spamming every thread, i've only posted in this one.

They already had 3 factions in Dune 2, but then just made two for C&C.

If a game ha only two factions, but they are really differentiated and balanced, then I'd take that every day over several much too similar races!

Well, Rebellion onlyhad two civ's (Empire and Rebels) and it was a well balanced game and lots of fun to play. It was easily customized and it replayability was excellent. I still play it and its an old game. This smacks of a great game. I think alot of people here are just upset because much of their speculations were incorrect, but hey, that's ok folks. Just because we were all basically creating a GB 2 and PetroG has gone on and made a brand new game doesn't mean that it will be bad.

I am glad that they are creating something different. I think that it is about time that LA has its hands on a new engine and not something that they borrowed from somewhere else. It will be great when other games will have on the box "made from the Empire at War RTS engine" on it.


Go big or go home.

You mean the one we never see much of any more?
What was her name again.


The little I've heard of this game, this is how I see it:

In one hand: Rebellion
In the other: Galactic Battlegrounds
Now put your hands together.

From what I'm reading I would agree, with a little bit more of a reflection on Rebellion. Rebellion rocked!!

I can't wait for the space battles. A full on strategy based space conflict will be great.

This is already looking like a very ambitious game. afaik no-one has tried to combine space and ground battles in this way before. I think if they tried to add more than 2 civs it would get overambitious and there would be less chance of it being good.

Imperium Galactica II had this type of game play, where it combined space battles with ground battles, but that one also had micro-managing of planets so the population could grow and thrive, building up your ground forces and spacefleet, develop new technology, weapons, and military hardware (aswell as civilian advances).

I always hoped Rebellion would become sorta like that one, but allas it didn't reach that high. None the less, Rebellion was a fun game which I spent many, many hours on.

Yeah, I can't believe this. Usually it takes like 10 min after a mag is out for scans to hit the web!

Well, I've looked thru many stores that sell PC mags, but I can't seem to find it.

It might come out tomorrow here though, that's when Narvesen (which holds alot of different mags from all over the world here in Norway) get's their mags (usually) where I live.

well if you look at BFME im not so sure...a online game sould never last more then 3 hours , BFME can be endless.
if you look at just the technical part its realy a medium game, and not perfectly ballanced either.

i hope those guys will realy make empire at war a great game but to say that this game will be good for sure... i have my doubts about that.

but anyway...i'ts starwars
