Supreme Commander Expansion Announced

Touted as a "standalone expansion" (which often is marketingspeak for "expansion we're trying to halfassedly pass off as a sequel"), Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance has been announced by THQ.

Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is the next chapter in the critically acclaimed Supreme Commander franchise that set the standard for scope and scale in the RTS genre. The game continues the epic story following the Infinite War, featuring an all-new single-player campaign, a new faction and a myriad of innovative multiplayer features. More than one hundred new units will give players access to cutting-edge strategic options, including fully realized navies, orbital weaponry and advanced counter intelligence technologies. Developed by Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is expected to be available in retail outlets worldwide in November 2007.
Snide comments aside, Supreme Commander is an excellent RTS and I'm glad we're seeing more of it.
