Support powers

Video game concept

Player(s) and their opponent(s) can unleash devastating attacks or other actions that usually require no units or buildings to exist within the operation theatre to be usable.


Alternate names: Super powers, Global powers

Usually explained that these are so long distance weapons that other forces outside the immediate conflict can lend assistance occasionally (off-map artillery strikes).

The actual effects may range from re-inforcements of varying kinds to supply drops, from aerial strafing runs to howitzer barrage, from teleporting units long distances to nuclear strikes. Even temporary enhancements are valid.

The first Support powers video game was released on February 12, 2003.

Electronic Arts, EA Games and Origin8 Technologies published most of these games.
