Plymouth, MI - March 3, 2010 - Stardock announced today that the epic PC strategy game, Total Annihilation, has landed exclusively on Impulse, the fast-growing digital distribution platform for PC gaming (www.impulsedriven.com.) Originally created by Cavedog Entertainment, Total Annihilation is a classic real-time strategy (RTS) video game set in a future galaxy torn apart by war. The title changed PC gaming forever when it launched as the first RTS game that featured 3D units and terrain. Impulse customers will be able to experience firsthand the addictive galactic battles and engaging story driven campaign that made Total Annihilation one of the greatest strategy games of all time. Total Annihilation is now available for $9.99.
Players must strategically construct a defensive base and an offensive force while conquering opponents. Your choices will decide the fate of the galaxy as you gather resources, launch reconnaissance, utilize stealth, and manage your units and terrain. Battles for dominance take place against the AI in a story-driven campaign, with the option of playing against other players in a skirmish mode. Total Annihilation is classic PC gaming at its finest.
"Being huge strategy fans at Stardock, we're excited to be able to bring this awesome PC gaming experience exclusively to fans of Impulse," said Stardock's CEO and President Brad Wardell.
