Whilst the game does not require the first title to run, THQ is describing it as more of an expansion pack than full-blown sequel. It will feature a brand new single player campaign, a new faction and over 100 new units.
"Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is not only the continuation of the epic story that is unfolding inside the game's universe,” Gas Powered Games CEO Chris Taylor stated.
“It is the continuation of our goal to move the bar for RTS gaming even higher than ever. Forged Alliance offers over 100 new units, more maps and an entirely new faction. We are stuffing this game with all kinds of new features."
