Total War Vets Reveal Console RTS Stormrise

Creative Assembly, the studio behind the Total War series of PC real-time strategy games, has unveiled Stormrise, a console-exclusive RTS due on Xbox 360 and PS3. nope As with most console RTS projects, the game promises a simple control scheme that will "revolutionise" the genre. Multiple vertical layers of combat--air, surface, underground--are said to set the game apart from other RTS efforts.

"Stormrise has been built from the ground up specifically for high def consoles to provide a more intense, frenetic style of game that, coupled with the all new control mechanic, will revolutionise the way RTS games are played," claimed Sega Europe marketing director Gary Knight.

Published by Sega, Stormrise is expected to arrive in 2009. As with most recently-unveiled titles, expect more details to surface during next week's E3 Media & Business Summit.
