We belong to the Concord, an alliance of alien races, of which humanity has only recently joined. They provide the technology and weapons of war. We offer the traits that set us apart from every other race in the Concord- aggression and the talent to wage war against the Sheevat, it may not be enough.

We are the Sheevat. Our DNA is ancient and pure. An upstart race, the humans, have threatened our homes and our existence. To protect what is ours, we will destroy them. We will grow our children as weapons. We will spread our life. We will terminate this human species and return to our sleep.

  • Set up to 8 spy cams to follow units, give orders or monitor different locations around the map. View different parts of the world simultaneously.
  • Adaptive artificial intelligence so wicked and sneaky, no mission or campaign will ever play the same way twice.
  • Tilt your view of the world from top down all the way to 60 degrees. 3D Parallax scrolling adds to the realism.
  • Multiplayer action lets you compete with up to 6 players via LAN, hotseat, TCP/IP or the free, fully integrated Internet Matching Service. Serial and modem options also available.
