If you look around we have released a movie of gameplay footage of the naval battles for Empire.

Enjoy.

Thanks a lot for pointing this out, Intrepid! I've newsied it. For those who can't be bothered to check out the frontpage, you can view the video here.
Enjoy!

I must say, I'm very much impressed by both the water and the ships/units. The effects, such as explosions, waves, cannonball impacts, etc, look spectacular. Can't wait to play!

I'm getting that whatever my father says!

Nobody knows exactly where the entity known as Stephen Hill came from. He was found fully formed at the height of a storm and is believed to have come to Earth from a distant world where human qualities of fashion and beauty did not exist, which explains a lot. Constructed mostly of hatred and contempt, wrapped up in a pathetic human shell, Stephen comes fully equipped with his Antarian death coat, his Pen of Rage +2, and a variety of useful headgear

Utterly fantastic! The night battle was especially breathtaking, seeing all the gun ports lighting up with every shot fired, going down the length of the ship.

Actually, I should have bought a new pc for M2TW. I run it at almost minimum settings.

I might try and get enough money to do so. That looked amazing. Although I hope the control will be better than it was in Imperial Glory.

Well holy god. That is amazing. I love how they have elements of the classic TW interface blended into what is a remarkably different engine.
And the broadsides!!!

*screams because the wait is 6 months*

I'm lost for words. The graphics are amazing, even though I got a new hi-spec PC about a year ago I'm having doubts about whether it can handle it.

WHY CAN'T IT BE OUT NOW????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edit: Anyone else have the problem with the vid, no sound and stopped every 3 seconds?

This is not a signature.

Thank goodness the company I work for will loan employees up to 2,000 interest free in order to buy a home computer. I wonder what Alienware has for 2k?

Build it yourself and you can make a pretty darn good machine for $2000. In February I built the following for about $1700:

3.0 Ghz Intel Core2 Duo
motherboard (I forget make/model)
4 Gigs of DDR2 800 RAM
GeForce 8800 GT
SoundBlaster X-Fi soundcard
300 Gig HDD (10,000 RPMs)
standard DVD/CD drive
case & power supply
22 inch monitor
Windows Vista and Microsoft Office

Assuming you don't need a new monitor or keyboard or mouse and can reuse your old HDD, DVD/CD drive, and sound card, then you can probably get something pretty sweet for $2000. Probably top of the line motherboard with top of the line dual-core (or possibly even quad), lots of high quality RAM, and top of the line video card.

I checked Dell's website and I would have had to pay about $2200 for something comparable. I highly recommend building your own. Or getting a nerdy friend to do it for you.

No, I'm not being sarcastic.

I laughed when I saw that crewman go flying. Am I a bad person? Its not 6 months; its only 5 months, 21 days, 4 hours, 3 minutes and 27 seconds. We might get a demo to drool over in the next 3 months or so.

It is not enough that I succeed, but my enemies must fail.

I came, I saw, and was crushed.

Me too. I am slowly saving up money for a new one. I have about £300 right now. I need more now!

Plus the video is very cool.
