Republic And Confederacy Added To Empire At War - Lucasarts

Marin County, Calif. – April 1, 2005 – LucasArts revealed today that it will give PC players the opportunity to take control of two new sides with which to decide the fate of the galaxy in an all new expanded real-time strategy (RTS) game titled Star Wars Empire at War™. Initially set a few years before the events of Episode IV A New Hope, the expanded game will let players rewrite history as well as experience the entire Star Wars saga with the inclusion of the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independant Systems. Players will now experience events ranging from Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace up to the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, co-inciding with the original storyline of the creation of the Rebel Alliance, and Darth Vader’s rise to power. Star Wars Empire at War is scheduled for a release in Fall 2005.

Using an entirely new game engine created by the Las Vegas-based developer Petroglyph, the game will feature beautifully rendered land and space battles set on memorable planets such as Hoth, Geonosis, Tatooine, Coruscant and Dagobah as well as never-before-seen environments taken directly from the Star Wars films and expanded universe novels. In the game, players can choose to join either the Galactic Republic, Confederacy of Independant Systems, Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire, building and setting up tactical forces that can be unleashed on the enemy in real-time 3D. All of the gameplay and action within Star Wars Empire at War is a persistent, meaning that strategic and tactical elements from previous events will have a permanent effect on the galaxy.

As players build, manage and progress their space and ground-based units, troops and vehicles, memorable Star Wars hero characters will begin playing a role in key situations. In addition to the single player campaign modes, the game will include a two-player Empire vs. Rebellion mode, a two-player Republic vs. Confederacy mode, an exciting 'Free-for-all' mode and up to eight player online skirmish modes.

Alright, I'll admit, you got me. And I told myself I wouldn't fall for anything today. Damn.

It would be very cool if they included that though.

Would be very cool indeed, I just hope we can have another Republic Gunship thread

If you have been on the SWGB forums you'll probably know what I'm talking about.

Yes I did. That's why I stickied it to make it seem even more official.

He had me a few seconds though. And I must admit, I did feel alittle disappointed when I remembered what day it was.

Thank you, thank you (bows)

I thought it would be an...interesting April Fools joke, if somewhat cruel to some of the more pro-PT fans. Still, hopefully sometime soon Lucasarts will announce it for real, but for now, glad you enjoyed the joke
