Hellbent Games and Gas Powered Games (Dungeon Siege) have announced they are developing an Xbox 360 version of the strategy title Supreme Commander, with full support for HD and surround sound, slated for an early 2008 release. Although THQ published the PC version of the title in February 2007, this latest incarnation will be published by Aspyr (Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, Stubbs the Zombie), although THQ originally announced the Xbox 360 follow-up earlier this year. Supreme Commander puts gamers in control of one of three factions fighting to control the future of mankind. Expanding on the Supreme Commander universe, the Xbox 360 edition will add new units, updated maps and new multiplayer modes for play online via Xbox Live. In addition, Supreme Commander will feature a revised, console-specific control interface and HUD. A new strategic zoom feature also gives the player the ability to control battle groups from a less detailed overhead map view, or zoom to ground level, where they can issue orders to single units. Chris Taylor, CEO and creative director of Gas Powered Games and lead designer of Supreme Commander commented, “Aspyr’s developer-friendly publishing environment delivers 100% on our vision for bringing Supreme Commander to the Xbox 360. We believe that we’ve raised the bar for RTS gaming on the PC and now, co-developing with Hellbent Games, we know that we can do the same on consoles. Hellbent brings a talented, veteran team together to deliver Supreme Commander to the Xbox 360 platform.”
