Lucasarts unveiled the latest list of features for Star Wars: Empire at War which include the following items:

Wage war on ground and in space - battle it out in space and then send down your remaining forces to invade the planet.

All action is persistent - every decision affects the next battle and, ultimately, the fate of the galaxy. Play out your own personal version of Episode IV: A New Hope.

Real-time strategy (RTS) 3D gameplay set in more than 40 ground and space locations including Yavin IV, Tatooine and Dagobah - each has its own specific advantage and/or resource.

Construct ground and space structures, including space stations, factories and ion cannons.

Deploy ground and space vehicles from giant Star Destroyers and AT-ATs to swift speeder bikes and X-wings.

Access a variety of ground troops including stormtroopers and Rebel soldiers.

Unique mission objectives such as rescues, sabotage, blockades and destruction.

Begins several years before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, including vehicles and locations from both the classic timeframe and Episode III.

Play as the Rebels as they amass their forces and work to thwart the plans of the Empire, or serve the Empire and crush the Rebellion at its roots.

Destroy the Death Star or use it as the ultimate power in the universe.

Innovative multiplayer campaign mode lets two players battle for the galaxy and save games in progress. Up to eight players can compete in online skirmish modes.

All-new game engine created by Las Vegas-based developer Petroglyph, composed of industry veterans responsible for classic RTS titles, including the Command & Conquer series.
