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?

Story-driven campaign coming to Command & Conquer

It feels weird to write a headline like that. If you told my high-school self that campaign missions coming to a Command & Conquer game was news, I'd call you a goofy goober. Yet, here I am. Years older and wiser, t...more

Command & Conquer will offend everyone equally

Command and Conquer is back, and this time it's going the free-to-play route. Now before you cringe too hard from the last statement, much is still undecided when it comes to the freemium model that will be in place when the ...more
