Xbox 360 Versions Of Universe At War And Supreme Commander:
Dark Sector (March 25) : It's been a long time for Digital Extremes' original title, having been announced several years ago as a space-based MMO then reimagined as a sci-fi action game. Now the title is a mix of sci-fi, spy, and superhero genres as you control a secret agent that gets “infected” by a weapon that bonds to his arm and can give him special abilities. D3Publisher is counting on Dark Sector to be its major AAA console flagship title of 2008 with its release on the Xbox 360 and PS3 (alas, D3Publisher has no plans for a PC version).
Viking: Battle For Asgard (March 25): Developer The Creative Assembly and publisher Sega release this Xbox 360-PS3 action game that, as the title implies, puts you in command of an ancient Viking warrior battling humans, creatures, and Norse gods. The Creative Assembly has mixed RPG and even some RTS aspects into this title and you can expect lots and lots of Viking carnage.
Command and Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath (March 25) : PC gamers may be waiting for C&C: Red Alert 3 to be released later this year, but before that happens Electronic Arts takes us back to the classic C&C universe for a new expansion pack that adds some info on the series's main villain Kane. Look for new units and features in this expansion (the Xbox 360 will get this game as a stand alone title this summer)
Two previously released PC sci-fi RTS games get ported over to the Xbox 360 this spring. On March 25, developer Petroglyph and publisher Sega release the Xbox 360 port of Universe at War: Earth Assault which has the honor of being only the second game ever released to have cross-platform multiplayer with the PC version. On May 19, developer Hellbent Games will port Gas Powered's 2007 released sci-fi RTS title Supreme Commander to the Xbox 360. There won't be any cross-platform multiplayer but it will have new units and multiplayer modes that will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 version.
Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor (April) :
Stardock may have a major PC game hit on its hands with the Ironclad Games developed Sins of a Solar Empire, but Stardock's own space strategy game Galactic Civilizations II isn't being ignored either. The developer is working on its second (and final) expansion pack for the game called Twilight of the Arnor that packs in a new single player campaign, new ships, new tech trees for all the civilizations, editors for pretty much every aspect of the game, improved AI, a graphics overhaul and more.
