Sierra Online Reveals Details on Upcoming Xbox Live Arcade/PC Online Games*
Sierra Online, a division of Vivendi Games, has released the first details
and artwork for three of its upcoming titles – *Switchball, *an inventive
physics-based puzzle game, *Commanders: Attack!*, a turn-based tactical
military game, and *Battlestar Galactica*, a space combat game inspired by
the popular TV series.
Coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade late this summer and currently available for the
PC on popular online gaming portals, *Switchball* challenges players to
control an ever-changing ball along a narrow and challenging course
suspended in midair. A polymorphous ball exhibits different physical
characteristics as it changes form as either a standard Marbleball, a
feather-light Airball, an electrically charged Powerball or a dense and
powerful Metalball. Players will have to solve their way through challenging
levels packed with tricky obstacles, traps and mazes. With beautifully
rendered 3D environments including Skyworld, Iceworld, Caveworld, Cloudworld
and Lavaworld, *Switchcball* features an advanced physics engine, allowing
players to interact with objects just as they would in the real world.
*Commanders: Attack!* is a gripping turn-based tactical game with a
combination of strategic troop placement and entertaining head-to-head
warfare. Featuring a 1930's art deco look and feel, players will use missile
launchers, bombers and infantry to amputate the enemies' defenses and
conquer the land. Players can choose to challenge the computer AI in a
campaign across three different landscapes or battle against three friends
either locally or online in four intense multiplayer modes - Versus, Team
Play, Player vs. CPU or same-system Skirmish. *Commanders: Attack!* will be
available on Xbox LIVE Arcade and Windows PC this fall.
Inspired by the hit television series, Battlestar Galactica, airing on the
SCI FI Channel, *Battlestar Galactica* is an action-packed top-down space
combat game set in the universe of the hugely popular sci-fi television show.
Players can take part in enormous multiplayer space battles with up to eight
players online or play through the single-player campaign that includes
memorable missions from the TV series. Pilots can either sign up to defend
the *Galactica* or play as the ruthless Cylons as they seek to remove the
human race from existence. With full 3D graphics to show off the detailed
ships and cosmic environments, *Battlestar Galactica** *allows players to
fly four Human and four Cylon ships from the Viper II to the Cylon raider,
each with unique weapon capabilities. *Battlestar Galactica* will be
available on Xbox LIVE Arcade, as well as Windows PC this fall.
