In another CES 2008 announcement, Microsoft has highlighted nine new additions to its Games for Windows endeavor, promising to "continue the momentum for Windows-based gaming in 2008" and "revive" the PC gaming space. The titles due to be dressed in Microsoft's colors include:
  • Alone in the Dark (Atari)
  • Bionic Commando (Capcom)
  • Conflict: Denied Ops (Eidos Interactive)
  • Empire: Total War (SEGA)
  • LEGO Indiana Jones (LucasArts)
  • Microsoft Train Simulator 2 (Microsoft Game Studios)
  • Sins of a Solar Empire (Stardock)
  • Space Siege (SEGA)
  • Tomb Raider: Underworld (Eidos Interactive)
The list not only cements the "Underworld" subtitle to Eidos' next Tomb Raider, but provides reassurance as to the longevity of Microsoft's initiative. Games for Windows is sure to be around for quite some time if Alone in the Dark manages to arrive under its banner. Microsoft's polite press release is also keen to remind us that other expected 2008 titles -- Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, Borderlands, The Club, Fallout 3 and Frontlines: Fuel of War -- will stand beneath the flapping emblem.
