6:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Macintosh game publisher Aspyr Media has updated their website to officially announce their newest product, Stars Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns, an expansion pack for the real-time strategy game. While the add-on was revealed as coming to the Mac back at Macworld New York, this is the first information to be posted on the company's web site. Along with the expected new units and structures, Clone Campaigns will also feature new upgrades and powerups, a larger force at your disposal (up to 250 units per player), the ability to replay old campaigns with new features and units, added goodies to the scenario editor, and more. Here is a list of included features:

Features include:
  • New units and locales from Star Wars: Episode II as well as other Star Wars films and expanded universe.
  • Increase the population limit to 250 units allowing you to field much larger armies than before.
  • Mix and match civilizations from Episode II with those from the original Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds game when playing in single player skirmish or multiplayer mode.
  • Replay the original campaigns from Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds with air cruisers, power droids, and all the new upgrades and effects from the Clone Campaigns expansion pack.
  • Featuring numerous enhancements for this release-including upgradeable shields, power cores, new effects and new units for scenario editor.
  • Clone Campaigns, is currently in the Beta stage, and is slated to be released in late September or Early October. A related news item at Westlake Interactive notes that the "programming on Clone Campains has progressed extremely well and we expect the software to hit Final Candiate in the near future."

    The Aspyr page notes the system requirements for the expansion are slightly higher than for the original. Preliminary recommendations include OS 9 or OS 10.1, 128MB RAM, and at least a Rage 128 or GeForce2 MX graphics card.

    You can order the original Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds from the IMG Store for $43. You do not have to be a member of the MacGames CD in order to take advantage of this special price.
