The Xfire online gaming and community platform will be incorporated into Sword of the Stars, an empire-building strategy game from the core team behind Home World: Cataclysm.

Sword of the Stars will feature a 3D starmap and real-time 3D combat. Gamers can choose from four different races, and will be able to explore planets and research new technologies in order to progress within the game.

Xfire is a free platform that allows for friend-tracking, in-game messaging, voice communication and lobby features across a community of over 3.5 million registered gamers.

Vacouver’s Kerberos Productions is handling development of the game, which is expected to release in Q2 2006.
