About Supreme Ruler
The Major Powers of the world as we currently know them have disintegrated into bickering economic and military regions. The United Nations has disappeared, and an organization with far sharper teeth referred to as â€œThe World Marketâ€ has taken its place. Individual Regions are left to fight for power to dominate their neighbors, their countries, their continents, and then the world.
Supreme Ruler 2010 is a groundbreaking Economic, Political, and Military Strategy game for Windows PCs. It supports Single and Multi-Player (up to 16 players) in either â€œReal Timeâ€ or â€œTurn Basedâ€ modes. For more information on Supreme Ruler 2010 please visit the official website at www.supremeruler2010.com, the official BattleGoat Studios Forum at www.bgforums.com, or www.strategyfirst.com.
Supreme Ruler 2010 will be available for purchase on May 10, 2005 at all major retailers at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Rated Everyone by ESRB.
