Vivendi Universal Publishing games division studio Sierra Ent. Inc. announced that it is banding with Intel Corporation and iGames to co-sponsor a worldwide Empire Earth tournament this September.
The Empire Earth World Championships will begin with regional competitions held in more than a dozen different countries across the globe, culminating in a championship tournament in Munich, Germany in October. There, the best of the best Empire Earth combatants will go head-to-head for the Grand Prize of $20,000 and a chance to increase that amount to $100,000. The tournament will highlight Siera Ent.s upcoming expansion pack to the real-time strategy game, Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest.
Empire Earth: The Art of Conquest includes three new single-player campaigns set in ancient Rome, the Pacific Theater of World War II and Asia in the 22nd century.
