Empires is a Half Life 2 total conversion combining the best aspects of the First Person Shooter and Real-Time Strategy genres. Players will choose between fighting for the Brenodi Empire or the Jekotian resistance known as the “Norther Faction” under the direction of each team’s designated commander.
Commanders will play from a traditional RTS view from above the battlefield and is in charge of issueing orders to players, placing base structures and defences, researching new weapons and vehicles and managing the team’s resources.
Standard players will aid in securing and constructing bases for the commander and waging war with one of 4 customiseable infantry classes or using one of 7 different and fully customiseable vehicle classes. The goal of the teams are to either kill the enemy commander or reduce the enemy team’s reinforcements to 0, rendering them unable to respawn.
