Turner Broadcasting System has announced that it is bringing Derek Smart's Galactic Command – Echo Squad to its GameTap subscription PC 'all you can eat' gaming service, which currently offers over 800 licensed video games for download and play on demand. Described as a “fast-paced episodic space shooter set in an expansive galaxy,” Galactic Command – Echo Squad is being developed by 3000AD (Universal Combat) as a set of four downloadable episodes. Starting in the spring with Episode 1: Rise of the Insurgents, the episodes will be released on a monthly basis, with the four part collection making up a campaign totaling sixteen missions. Galactic Command - Echo Squad will support up to sixteen players per mission over a multiplayer client-server. Subscribers will be able to choose from a variety of modes, including death match, team death match and multiplayer cooperative modes when playing other GameTap subscribers online. Smart also told Gamasutra in a recent interview that his company also plans to bring the game to the Xbox 360’s Live network in early 2008, though it is unclear whether this move is also still planned. "Thanks to GameTap and its commitment to episodic games, we now have a great opportunity for Galactic Command to reach a larger audience," said Derek Smart, president and CEO of 3000AD. "We're excited to be on board with a company that has a clear vision for broadening the PC gaming market."
