Realm Interactive has announced a new massively multiplayer real-time strategy game set in a vast universe composed of thousands of players, Trade Wars: Dark Millenium. The game is based on the original Trade Wars, a turn-based strategy game popular on many early bulletin board systems (BBS). The game is expected to be released on the PC in the second half of 2001 with Mac, Linux and console versions following shortly thereafter...
Key features in the game include the ability to:
- Command distinct cultures, each with their own technology and special abilities, towards a goal of domination and riches;
- Travel through an enormous virtual 3D world comprised of both planetary and space environments;
- Build empires with other players and work towards common goals; and
- Establish trade routes, mine resources, pirate, hunt creatures, and wage war against opposing empires.
