Midway Games today announced that it has secured the U.S. and Canadian publishing rights for Earth 2160, the sequel in the Earth series of real-time strategy titles. The game is scheduled to be published in the U.S. and Canada this November for the PC.
Developed by Reality Pump Studios, Earth 2160 sees conflict arise as the remnants of the Eurasian Dynasty, Lunar Corporation and United Civilized States terraform Mars following Earth’s destruction. As the civilizations independently rebuild, a group of imprisoned alien renegades is awakened from suspended animation. The groups must either battle it out or band together as they try and survive the new alien threat.
“The Earth series is known for combining solid RTS gameplay with a compelling story, and Earth 2160 continues that tradition while adding state of the art visuals and lighting, multiplayer capabilities and a vast number of customization features comprising more than 100 hours of gameplay,” said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. “Titles like Earth 2160 that innovate while delivering a gripping gameplay experience are key parts of Midway’s growth strategy as the company’s publishing portfolio continues to expand.”
