Rise & Fall: Saved

Midway has confirmed that Rise & Fall: Civilizations at War, the real time strategy title from doomed developer Stainless Steel Studios, will be released in June.

The game, which was at risk of being sucked into development limbo after the collapse of Stainless Steel last November, has been passed to Midway's internal developers in San Diego - and these screens suggest that the game hasn't suffered in the transition.

With experience on both Heroes of Might and Magic and Lords of EverQuest, the San Diego team should have few problems in meeting the summer deadline, and with luck we'll be bringing you a hands-on with this intriguing title very soon.
