10:14 AM | Sean Carton | Comment on this story
As its shipping date rapidly approaches (two weeks, according to MacGamez), RTS fans have been licking their collective chops in anticipation of this 3D stunner. If you're one of those fans hungering to sink your teeth into e.p.i.c.'s real time strategy game, you're going to want to check out the Earth 2150 preview on MacGamez today.
If nothing else, it seems that Earth 2150's use of 3D graphics to enhance gameplay will inject some serious excitement into a genre that some think have seen better days. How? Earth 2150's engine allows for real terrain deforming, strategic use of high and low ground, and the interesting ability to go beneath the surface to do battle:
The engine also allows for subterranean play. When below the surface, you'll have a second map view that is an underground version of the terrain above. New strategic milestones come into play here, as there also may be impassable areas you can't tunnel through. Of course, if you find the correct path, you'll be able to pop up right in enemy territory - the ultimate in surprise attacks.There's more (lots more!) but we don't want to spoil the surprise. Hop on over to MacGamez and check out the preview, complete with some killer new screenshots.
