How to Adjust the Game Speed of Empire Earth

Updated July 19, 2017

"Empire Earth" is a real-time strategy game that requires you to build towns, manage citizens and collect resources such as wood and food. Ultimately, the goal is to build a stable enough economy to fund your army. Because the action is happening in real time, you have very little time to labour over important decisions. Altering the game's speed can help players who need more time to think or those who simply want to hurry things along.
