gamescom: EA announces free-to-play Command & Conquer



7:30 PM on 08.15.2012

EA has unveiled a brand new, free to play Command & Conquer game that they're simply calling Command & Conquer.

Now I know that many who have been following the franchise recently would have undoubtedly heard of Command & Conquer Generals 2, and are wondering what on earth has happened to it now that this has transpired. Well, according to Command & Conquer's FAQ on their site (you can sign up for the beta on said site) the team have:

...decided to take Generals 2 in an exciting new direction as EA's first HD, free online game. Command & Conquer. The Generals 2 universe is the first of many free offerings that [the team] will deliver with Command & Conquer.

So it seems as though that whatever Generals 2 was supposed to contain will be released for free in this new game. Command & Conquer will launch sometime in 2013 as a free, Origin exclusive game.

Command & Conquer fans, do you feel that EA's made the right decision here?
