Sega has announced that the upcoming Universe at War: Earth Assault will be the first third-party title to take advantage of Microsoft's Games for Windows Live features.

Developed by Petroglyph, the real-time strategy game will allow PC and console gamers to play against each other.

"Sega is delighted to be working with Microsoft and join them at the forefront of a new dawn of gaming," commented Gary Knight, European marketing director for Sega Europe.

"The power of the Xbox 360 console means that games once exclusively the preserve of high-end PC gaming, are now finding a new home on console also.

"With Universe at War's support for Games for Windows Live we'll be able to bring together PC and console gamers through one of RTS gaming's most anticipated new titles," he said.

Earth Assault: Universe At War is scheduled for release in Winter 2007 on PC and for the Xbox 360 in Q1 2008.
