Issue #18, Nov 20th, 2007
Wow, what a year! I canít believe how much has happened, and how many new things we have in the works. Not only did we release the first version of Supreme Commander, we also launched its stand-alone expansion, Forged Alliance. And it didnít stop there -- we announced our new action-RPG Space Siege with Sega and even more recently, our new publishing partnership with Aspyr to release Supreme Commander on the Xbox 360 early next year. Whew!
You're probably thinking, these guys know how to keep busy, and thatís a bit of an understatement because we have so many new things in development. I already hinted at another expansion pack for SupCom, and Iím even going to hint at another big secret: We have a new PC game that will be announced very shortly, and itís unlike anything we've done before. Stay tuned for more information!
All of the news and announcements aside for just a moment Ö let me take the time to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. We hope you have a terrific holiday, and lots of laughs spent with friends and family. And hey, you can always sneak away for a few minutes to play a little Forged Alliance!

As of this writing, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is available in the United States (it will ship to the rest of the world later this month). Telling the epic story of humanity's last stand against the Seraphim, Forged Alliance introduces a new playable faction and 100 new units while offering a minimalistic, streamlined UI, improved AI and a host of other features.
But just don't take our word for how awesome Forged Alliance is (we're obviously a little biased). Here's what the critics are saying:
- PC Gamer: 92%
'For SupCom owners, Forged Alliance is a must-have expansion.'
- IGN: 8.6
'An RTS with some of the deepest, most satisfying gameplay around.' Read the review
- Gamespot: 8.5
"When we look back at 2007 in terms of strategy gaming, it may very well be remembered as the year of Supreme Commander." Read the review
