Universe at War: Earth Assault is the next sci-fi real-time strategy game from Petroglyph, the award-winning developer comprised of ex-Westwood Studios members that developed the original Command & Conquer and C&C: Red Alert. The latest strategy game from these RTS pioneers features unprecedented levels of customization and an epic storyline set on near-future Earth. Powerful forces from across the universe have brought war to our planet. In Universe at War, you take command of several unique factions with awesome powers and spectacular units. Control massive-scale alien war machines that are fully customizable. With “Tactical Dynamics,” Universe at War's on-the-fly tactical customization system, you can dynamically swap out weaponry, rework your tech tree, and retrain units in the middle of combat to thwart your foe and seize the advantage. This advance on the traditional rock-paper-scissors model of balance gives players even more control over how they respond and adapt to their opponent's strategies.
Universe at War features large-scale environmental destruction in a persistent world – level a city and when you come back, the area will still be a smoking ruin. Here, though, the environments you are fighting for are close to home, as you wage war across a familiar Earth
Universe at War also introduces numerous innovative new multiplayer features inspired by today's top MMOs and competitive online environments, giving players achievements, rewards, and medals but in a balanced environment with intelligent matchmaking. Each of the game's factions will have unique paths to victory with completely different styles of play, allowing players from across the globe to battle it out in a virtual representation of Earth for ultimate faction supremacy.
