Star Wars: Empire at War Podcast and Map Building Contest

The real-time strategy game was the #1 PC title in February/March 2006
LucasArts and Petroglyph announced that two podcasts are now available for download here, taking listeners behind the scenes of the game’s development, and into the future of what is planned for its upcoming expansion, Forces of Corruption. In addition, the developers, many of who are industry veterans, will share their experiences making games over the years and offer tips and tricks for listeners who want to break into the industry. They also announced that using the Map Editor released last month (story), players can build and submit their map masterpieces. The top 10 maps, as voted on by players, will be featured on the official Petroglyph website, and of those, Petroglyph developers will pick the top three. The creators of the three winning maps will receive prize bundles including PC hardware and developer-signed copies of Star Wars: Empire at War.
