The game will span 1,000 years of a civilisation with each one having it’s own unique technologies, units and special abilities.

"A real-time strategy game of epic scope and breadth, Empires: Dawn of the Modern World lets players command legendary civilisations as they battle to forge mighty empires during the days of longbows and charging knights to the awesome land, air and sea battles of WWII involving Tiger Tanks, Storm Troopers, Spitfires, and stealthy submarines"

There is no word on a release date for the game yet however it looks from the current build that it can not be too far away. The graphics look awesome for a RTS game and these shots from the Xbox version make this game one to watch out for:-
