Galactic Battlegrounds to feature two new civilizations and 14 dynamic
new battle scenarios inspired by Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the
The great conflicts of the Star Wars universe become larger and more
dynamic this spring with Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone
Campaigns, a collection of new scenarios enhancements for last year's
acclaimed RTS (real-time strategy) game from
LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC. Expected to release in May on the
PC, Clone Campaigns is inspired by the large-scale battles in Star
Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, as well as the classic and
expanded Star Wars universe.
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns features 14 original
single-player combat scenarios, new civilizations, environments,
vehicles, and more than 200 new units. By adding the expansion pack to
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, in both skirmish and multiplayer
modes, players can mix and match civilizations from Attack of the
Clones with those from the classic Star Wars universe.
"Clone Campaigns gives us an opportunity to incorporate
compelling new Star Wars: Episode II content with improvements in the
gameplay, much of which was gleaned from the tremendous feedback
received from the player community over the past few months,"
says Tom Byron, director of product marketing for LucasArts.
Clone Campaigns, as in its predecessor, is built upon enhanced engine
technology from Ensemble Studios' Age of Kings. The expansion pack
will feature numerous technical improvements including upgraded
shields, power cores, and new effects.
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns requires a copy of
the retail version of the original game in order to be played.
