Your mission: colonize new worlds on distant planets. As the Mission Commander, you and the Mechanized Assault and Exploration (M.A.X.) Force you lead are the first ones in. Mining stations, power plants, tactical combat vehicle factories, habitats -- it's up to you to plan and construct them.
The entire new colony? You create it. The resources you find there? Control them. Enemies? Crush 'em! And there will be enemies. You're not the only Mission Commander trying to colonize the planets. You'll have to push yourself to the limit to survive the ultimate showdown in strategic warfare.
It's espionage, heavy artillery, offensives, counter offensives and intelligence -- all with maximum consequences.
Choose from eight factions and build over 50 land, sea and air units. Up to four human or computer opponents can wage war over a network or head-to-head via modem.
