In Dark Reign 2's apocalyptic future, an ecologically unstable Earth has
fallen under the rule of a repressive world police force, the Jovian Detention
Authority. Charged by Earth's elite with protecting their exclusive 'dome'
cities, the JDA is locked in an ongoing battle to pacify the masses of urban
'Sprawlers' who dwell in the toxic, irradiated world outside. It is not until
the occurrence of a single, catastrophic event, however, that the Sprawlers
unite their unconventional technologies and weaponry to engage the JDA in the
violent drama of Earth's final chapter. The battle unfolds on land, sea and
air, and gamers can take up the cause of either side, fighting through 20
challenging day and night missions.
Real 3-D Terrain:
While competitive RTS games rely on 2-D voxels, sprites or bitmaps,
Dark Reign II’s full 3-D engine supports multiple levels of elevation,
line-of-sight restrictions and spectacular graphic effects. It also
utilizes Intel’s MRM (multi-resolution mesh) technology, adjusting
performance to make full use of your machine’s processing power.
Unprecedented Battlefield Control:
The game’s squad management interface includes special team groupings
and team placement to allow unit control from anywhere on the map. The
building manager feature allows you to manage the status of your buildings from any location.
New Strategic Options:
Dark Reign II’s 3-D battlefield delivers different strategic scenarios,
including day and night missions, inner-city battles, extreme weather,
and the ability to control vital chokepoints.
Superior multiplayer features include robust Internet play, cooperative
play, team play, alliances and a full 3-D map editor. Instant replay mode
allows you to review past battles from any angle and even trade replays
over the Internet.
