ONE OF THE BEST RTS GAMES IMO
dont let the release date fool you, this game looks good
Emperor: Battle for Dune represents the seamless combination of cutting-edge 3D graphics and perfected real-time strategy gameplay. In your conquest for the Imperial Throne in the gripping universe of Dune, choose from three unique sides and five powerful subgroups to plot a perilous course through up to five treacherous game worlds. In both single-player and multiplayer modes, lead your forces in both large-scale planetary strategies and cunning ground-level tactics.
