Marcus Estrada writes: "Are you into any of the following games?: Civilization, Eve Online, Total War? If you're a fan of strategy then the answer is probably yes. Empyrean Rule - Rise of the Ancients is an upcoming online game which models itself after these excellent examples of the genre. It meshes both the large-scale strategic management of your rising empire but also allows for specific focus on real time battles. All of this takes place over a huge sandbox world, too, leaving lots of space to explore and eventually gain control of."
