Petroglyph reveals "global" online project

Free to play with micro transactions.

Star Wars: Empire at War and Universe at War developer Petroglyph has revealed plans to make a fancy online game.

Details on what exactly it'll be about are sparse, but we're told it will be developed for PC, free to play and funded by micro transactions. Some sort of massively-multiplayer online real-time strategy game would be a good guess - better than say, pastrami.

The first hint at this direction was apparent in Universe at War. That game features a Conquer the Globe mode where you can engage in a persistent online battle for territory against your friends.

True Games is publishing. The company put together recently by former members of K2 Network, which bought Eastern games like Knight Online and Sword of the New World to the West.
