Did you know that December 21st in 2012 is the date that the world's set to end, according to the Mayan calendar? It could mean anything: massive sunspot activity, reversal of the Earth's magnetic field, one of those things falling from space that people make films about... or maybe an alien invasion? Well, if you're getting stuck into Universe at War: Earth Assault, you'd best run with alien invasion, because that's when the game kicks off and that's what's happening.

Hailing from the studios of Petroglyph, the developer behind Star Wars: Empire at War, Universe at War: Earth Assault is a real time strategy title that pitches four factions into all out war: humans, the Hierarchy, the Masari and the Novus. In a nutshell, the Hierarchy want to conquer Earth and it leads to all kind of bad news for our little blue and green sphere.

High up the list of features in Universe at War: Earth Assault is what Petroglyph calls 'Tactical Innovations'. This will allow players to retrain and customise their units even during the heat of battle. Get it right and you'll find yourself overwhelming the enemy and making the most of tactical opportunities.

Universe at War also features deformable terrain, so you'll be able to lay huge cities to waste and then come back to visit the battle scars you've left on the very planet.

The game comes complete with a multiplayer mode that borrows from MMOs. Players will be able to engage each other on a persistent virtual Earth, racking up achievements, rewards, and medals as they go.
