First gameplay video launches new Maelstrom microsite at


June 21 2006, Witness a war-torn future Earth with the first gameplay trailer video for Maelstrom, the forthcoming futuristic real-time strategy action epic for PC. The trailer is now available from the new Maelstrom microsite, (in Downloads), and reveals your battleground: an ecologically ravaged planet that’s crawling with morphing military tech and organic alien weapons.

Maelstrom’s dedicated microsite is now the online destination to register for exclusive game information feeds, grab the latest screenshots or join the Underground and talk tactics in the forums. As the site evolves, you’ll discover the hidden depths of the game’s three factions: the guerrilla freedom-fighting Remnants, the technologically advanced Ascension with their transforming robotic tech, and a mysterious alien race, the Hai-Genti, who have their own plans for the future of the planet.

With the characters, setting and pace of science-fiction Hollywood blockbuster wrapped in a top rate script from screenwriter James Swallow (Star Trek: Voyager, Doctor Who), Maelstrom is set to be the most frantic and destructive RTS gaming experience yet. Battling to control the future of the entire planet, you’ll take command from different viewpoints and employ faction-specific tactics and weaponry - from terraforming the land to harnessing the forces of nature to achieve your objectives.

Promising an explosive and varied mix of action-packed strategic missions set in totally destructible environments, Codemasters will publish Maelstrom in late September, exclusively for PC. Discover more about the future of planet Earth and the future of RTS gaming with the first Maelstrom gameplay trailer movie and more at the game’s new microsite, now live at
