Ultimate EaW v3.2 Released
Posted on 8/23/2006 at 6:38 PM by Echuu
Fynbos, a member of the UEAW Team, has informed us of the latest release of the huge modification for EaW known as Ultimate Empire at War. For those who haven't heard of it, this mod takes a big leap in the game, and lets you play in the different eras of the Star Wars timeline. Although I myself have not yet played it, from what I've seen it looks and sounds impressive.

Be sure to check out Fynbos' posting here!
Petroglyph Game Days
Posted on 8/16/2006 at 1:44 AM by Crazed Ewok
Petroglyph Games, the creators of Empire at War, have announced something of considerable interest. They plan to offer "Game Days", possibly a few times a month, in which players will be able to play representatives from Petroglyph. Hardcore players will be able to win prizes, such as EaW related-items, if they are able to beat the revered designers of the game itself.

The first Game Day is scheduled two days from now, Friday the 18th. The place - the General Lobby area in EaW. The time? 1 PM PST (GMT-8). If you're up to the challenge, be there or...well, just be there.

You can find out more information here!
