Star Wars: Empire At War

The official site for Empire At War has been updated with new images and videos of different features in the game as well as a great new trailer. I recommend the Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Rancor, Sarlaac Pit and Fleets videos. However, none of the space related videos in the Fleets section elude to the control mechanics of space battles. I am assuming it will still function on a horizontal plane like the ground battles instead of in true 3D space like Homeworld. If you are not familiar with Empire At War it is a RTS game for PC set to be released on Febuary 16, 2006. It will be unlike its SW based predecessor SW Battlegrounds. SWEAW will have a 3D camera instead of the traditional isometric view in SW Battlegrounds and will also take place in space and on the ground.
