Two political factions have gone to war over a distant world and the secrets it holds.
In Ground Control, the groundbreaking action/real-time strategy game from Sierra Studios and Massive Entertainment, strategic combat is combined with fast-paced action elements, promising a fresh experience with appeal to a wide audience, including online gaming enthusiasts. At its core, Ground Control is a frenetically paced RTS played in a visually stunning 3-D world.
During the course of the game, players are challenged in an intense arena of battle effectively managing tactical squads of foot soldiers, mobile units, aircraft and support units as they vie for control of a distant planet.
Ground Control's extensive multiplayer capability features several unique multiplayer modes including deathmatch-style drop-in games, a first for any RTS.
Command your squads in a variety of formations, across rugged terrain, and to victory in several missions with different objectives.
Focus on the strategy and action
Ground Control eliminates the tedious aspects of many typical RTS games by focusing its game play on tactics, strategy, and the art of battle.
Choose your troops.
A variety of tanks, hover bikes, aircraft and soldiers will be at your disposal. Choose wisely, because the troops and equipment you take into battle are the only ones with which you'll be able to conduct your campaign.
Arm your troops.
Each type of unit has special weapons, abilities, and armor. You can choose to custom-fit each unit, or let the game auto-select the proper arms for each mission. Advanced artificial intelligence technology makes your troops and your enemy's troops act and fight realistically.
