any specifics about multiplayer yet for this game?
i think this might be one game where pc and xbox players could play together?
also can you please make it support more than 8 players like the standard RTS (at least on pc)

Eight players is the standard for PC; I'd be highly surprised if there were any fewer. Warcraft III actually supported up to 12 players ("technically" you could have sixteen if you pulled some strings in the map editor, but four of them would be "invisible" players that could only be controlled by the AI and wouldn't appear on the allies screen, and it had some weird side effects), and I think that worked quite well. I'd like to see DoF support a large range of players so that future systems could actually take advantage of it.

I don't know about the technical limitations of the xbox when it comes to the number of players in the game or interaction between the PC and Xbox version, so we have to wait and see what Reverie has to say about it.

With how big the maps are, I'd love to see 8vs8. That would truly be MMORTS.

Sixteen players is something that might be difficult with a huge map and massive army sizes. However, the machines of tomorrow could probably handle it, and a lot of great games do end up being played through multiple generations of machines. I always believe it's worthwhile for a game that plans to endure to build itself so that future machines can actually take the game to new heights.

I think that's a great direction to go, but honestly so long as 4v4 is possible I'm content. We'll see what Reverie ends up doing in this regard.

That's the problem though, I don't have a machine of tommorow. :p

i meant 8 is standard but make it more :)
also AI in multiplayer would be great, so we can do humans vs AI

Should have that, too. Comp stomp is always nice.
