News: It's an expansion and a standalone game.
THQ has announced they will be bringing Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance to the PC this November. Like THQ's Company of Heroes expansion, Forged Alliance can be played as a standalone game or as an expansion to last winter's RTS hit. As with the original, the game is being developed by Chris Taylor and his company, Gas Powered Games.
Forged Alliance will add a boatload of new options to the Supreme Commander universe. They include "an all-new single-player campaign, a new faction and a myriad of innovative multiplayer features." In addition to that, "more than one hundred new units will give players access to cutting-edge strategic options, including fully realized navies, orbital weaponry and advanced counter intelligence technologies."
"Supreme Commander raised the standard for scope and scale in the RTS genre and is one of the highest rated strategy games of all time," said Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. "Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is pushing the boundaries yet again promising an exciting new chapter to fans worldwide."
