Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds
Our investigations at the show revealed that despite the use of the Age Of Empires engine within Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, Ensemble is not actually coding the title or even directly involved as such. As far as we can ascertain, they are being used as technical consultants to ensure the in-house programming team at LucasAits maximise the potential of the AOE engine, so it's more than possible that we're set to have the best of both worlds, with two such highly respected developers working together on the project.
I low ever, from what we saw, the graphics were looking somewhat dated, but there were a huge amount of instantly recognizable units, and some of the battles were truly epic affairs with hundreds of units on screen at a time with no visible slowdown.
The jury is still out on this one, and it could go either way. It's Star Wars, it's by LucasArts and it's using the AOE engine. Surely that's enough to make a cracking game? Or is it? We'll have to wait and see.
