ABOUT THE GAME:

Set in the 37th century, Supreme Commander signals the next evolution in the RTS genre by being the first strategy game to deliver a truly strategic and tactical experience. You direct one of three warring human factions, the Aeon Illuminate, the Cybran Nation or the United Earth Federation, as their Supreme Commander, the ultimate power on the battlefield.

Delivering one of the most advanced and innovative features of any RTS game, Supreme Commander establishes a breathtaking new standard with the sheer scope and scale of its gameplay. Colossal battles tear across maps of incomparable size as hundreds of units clash in epic battles of supremacy.

Plan, coordinate, and unleash strategic ground, naval and air attacks in a true display of combined-arms tactics. Use your heavy bombers to weaken a key enemy position before sending in your ground assault forces to mop up any survivors. Shell enemy fortifications with your water-based destroyers, or use submarines to launch a surprise attack against enemy aircraft carriers.

Supreme Commander is rated "E10+" for "Everyone" and carries an MSRP of $49.99. For more information, visit the game's official site at www.supremecommander.com.
