[News] [PC] [X360]  

 So it has been such a busy week here that I almost completely missed this and I would be remiss in my cross-platform gaming proponent duties if I did not mention it. Even if I am a few days late.

SEGA has announced that Universe at War: Earth Assaulit for the PC and Xbox 360 will support Microsoft’s Games for Windows – Live system, making it the first third-party title to support Games for Windows – Live and enable PC vs. Xbox 360 cross-platform gaming. Universe at War: Earth Assault is scheduled to ship for PC in North America and Europe this holiday 2007 and for the Xbox 360 in Q1 2008.

Wow now that is some super huge news. I was just talking about this with someone recently.

 Universe at War: Earth Assault for the Xbox 360 will employ a control scheme built from the ground up to ensure smooth gameplay and ease of command for console gamers. To fully support fair and equal gameplay between PC and Xbox 360 gamers, developer Petroglyph is working to implement a balanced gaming environment and multiple modes for PC vs. Xbox 360 multiplayer games ensuring the best possible experience for gamers on both platforms.

Will it have Six multiplayer modes like Loki? Because that's the bar to reach for Petroglyph. Reach for six or more! I can see that I am either going to have to move into a cardboard box to afford a new piece of equipment, or I'm going to have to find a new job.

Incorporating innovative multiplayer modes inspired by popular massively multiplayer online games and competitive online titles, Universe at War: Earth Assault for the PC and Xbox 360 will give players achievement points, rewards, and medals to encourage players to progress in the game. Players from around the world will battle in the persistent-style “Conquer the World” mode across the PC and Xbox 360 for ultimate faction supremacy in a virtual representation of Earth.

Hot damn! Conquer the world!
