|Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance|
Eight months after its release, your PC
might finally be able to run Supreme Commander, the stellar big boy RTS
from those ladies and gents at Gas Powered Games (and Chris Taylor, the
loudest man in gaming).
If you have indeed shelled out 400 quid on getting your box up to speed, you're probably figuring out then just how epic and mouse-smashingly intense RTS games can be with a couple more cores pushing them along. But the fact of the matter is for as absorbing and stupidly massive as SC's battles are, sometimes they can become a little too demanding.
That's the first port of call for expansion Forged Alliance; making the whole epic ballet easier to coordinate, stopping you from buckling under the pressure. It's meant to be fun right? Not work...
Immediately we noticed the expansion's massive overhaul in the UI
department; The interface bars are cleaner, you can hide and expose them
on the fly and it's generally a lot easier to see where everything is.
Plus it's fantastic to finally get rid of that dirty great bar hogging
the bottom of the screen.
Seraphim's sleek Sniper Bots are just plain awesome. When positioned
on a decent vantage point a team of three of four bots can take out an
entire undefended army in no time. We even managed to bull's-eye an
enemy ACU before it could even uncover us on the map!

|Supreme Commander - Forged Alliance - The Story|
"Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is not only the continuation of the epic story that is unfolding inside the game's universe, it is the continuation of our goal to move the bar for RTS gaming even higher than ever," says Chris Taylor, CEO of Gas Powered Games. "Forged Alliance offers over 100 new units, more maps and an entirely new faction...we are stuffing this game with all kinds of new features!"
Scheduled for release in November 2007, Forged Alliance is a standalone title that will not require the original Supreme Commander.
