Electronic Arts today announced that "Armies of Exigo"(TM) for the PC has gone gold. "Armies of Exigo" is a fantasy real-time strategy (RTS) game that
gives players the groundbreaking ability to wage war both above ground and in cavernous subterranean expanses as one of three unique forces.
"Armies of Exigo" pits the forces of The Empire, The Beast and The Fallen in a massive struggle for domination of a world divided by the terrain itself. In their quest for domination, the armies can travel below the surface to unleash surprise attacks or launch offensives from superior vantage points on the surface. Using the game's unique dual-layered map system, players can devise strategies never before seen in the real- time strategy genre. Utilizing special units for each army, players can even alter the landscape to eliminate the tactical advantages of their enemies, digging tunnels, creating avalanches and summoning volcanic blasts. "Armies of Exigo" offers a three-part single player campaign that follows each force as they seek to seize control of Exigo, as well as a robust online multiplayer mode for up to twelve combatants.
"Armies of Exigo" is developed by Black Hole Games, a development studio launched by Cinergi Interactive, a subsidiary of the award-winning motion picture production company Cinergi Pictures Entertainment. Slated for release on November 30, "Armies of Exigo" is rated "T" (Teen) by the ESRB and has an MSRP of $39.99. More information can be found on the game's web site at www.aox.ea.com.
