Rise of Nations Gold

Microsoft Game Studios sends word that Rise of Nations, the debut RTS game from Brian Reynolds and Big Huge Games, has gone gold, and is slated to ship to North American stores May 20. In celebration of the news MSN Gaming Zone's Chat with Brian Reynolds will discuss the now-gold game at 8:00 PM EDT. Here's the description of RoN that accompanies the announcement:
Rise of Nations combines the epic scope of traditional turn-based strategy (TBS) games with the fast-paced action of RTS games. The game allows players to create new cities, improve their city infrastructure and expand national borders. Players have the option to win through military might using everything from slingshots to cannons to stealth bombers, corner the market on key commodities, and wheel and deal with a wide variety of Nations. Unlike other historical RTS games, Rise of Nations allows gamers to quickly play through eight historical epochs of time from the Ancient Age to the Information age, covering 6,000 years of history. Gamers can play a quick battle on any map as one of 18 nations, or play Conquer the World, the unique blending of TBS and RTS gameplay. This latest title from Big Huge Games Inc. founder Brian Reynolds (designer of Civilization 2 and Alpha Centauri) will be available for an estimated retail price of $49.95 U.S. For more information about Rise of Nations, visit the official site at http://www.riseofnations.com.

I noticed that. Perhaps they're just learning to be pessimistic with the release dates when they start marketing the game so if it mets their internal release date, it's a bit before the offical street date.

At least it gives them a bit more time to get working on the first patch before the game is out
