A new trailer for Stormrise, released today, demos the strategic line of sight command, and tips on how to use your environment as an advantage.
It shows helicopters, more laser beam weapons, environment destruction and a flying serpent-looking thingie.
Sega and Creative Assembly’s RTS is out next month for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Hit the jump to watch.

Looks like if you want to play Stormrise on PC you better get an upgrade if you already haven’t: apparently the RTS will be one of the first to require both DirectX 10 and Vista.
“Stormrise has been designed for DirectX 10 and Vista only right from the start,” said Stormrise lead designer Artem Kulakov, who later clarified: “Vista only. DX10 only. No fallback option. We have never suggested this or hinted at it, so it shouldn’t be a surprise.”
“DX10 has offered a lot of advantages over DX9,” he added. “First of all, DirectX 10 allowed us to simplify the rendering engine.
“It matches capabilities of next generation consoles better than DX9, which is important for us considering that Stormrise is a multi-platform title. We had fewer driver-specific compatibility issues with Stormrise compare to our previous games released with DX9.”
Game’s out this month for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Creative Assembly’s communications manager, Vispi Bhoptihas, has said that trying to fight priacy is “pointless”.
Speaking to Videogamer.com regarding upcoming RTS Stormrise, Bhoptihas said that releasing a PC title later than its console version is no way to combat the problem.
“That’s pointless,” he said. “If people are going to pirate a game they’re going to pirate a game. All you can do is delay the piracy, really. But that’s just the nature of the beast.
“We are a PC developer, that’s where we started, so you do what you gotta do. We’ve got Games for Windows Live activation, so it’s pretty solid.”
Game’s out in March for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Creative Assembly’s big control “thing” for console RTS Stormrise is a “whip select” system, as seen in the game’s latest trailer. Watch is on Shacknews.
The innovation allows you to swap quickly between units and control other parts of the battlefield from afar, essentially.
It’s out for PS3 and 360 in March.

Creative Assembly console RTS Stormrise has units, obviously, so you probably need to know what they do if you’re going to play it.
The futuristic war game features Scorpions, Enforncers and Infiltrators, according to GameInfoWire, so you should be in good stead to fight the fight when it’s released for PS3 and 360 in March.
Which really isn’t that far away.

Sega’s put out some new screens and a fresh movie of Creative Assembly console RTS, Stormrise.
Get them from Shacknews.
The footage is a dev diary, but there’s in-game stuff there. The shots are split into PS3 and 360, so that should give you something new to fight over, if you’re that way inclined.
It’s out March next year.

Creative Assembly and Sega have announced a brand new IP, an RTS named Stormrise.
It’s a 360 and PS3 affair, and will ship next year. The setting’s tech-fantasy, seeing two warring factions – the Echelon and the Sai – kicking the shit out of each other in “bleak” surroundings.
Some shots here. Lots more info after the break.
