Goodbye Generals 2, Hello Command & Conquer Free to Play

Command & Conquer Generals 2 will not be released in the form previously announced. Instead of Generals 2, EA will be producing a new "free to play" game titled simply "Command & Conquer."

From the new Command & Conquer FAQ:

What happens to Generals 2?

The Generals 2 universe will be the first of many free offerings that we will deliver with Command & Conquer. The content that we have already created will be part of this new free-to-play experience.

More details at C&C Labs.

Command & Conquer Generals 2 Announced

EA has announced Command & Conquer Generals 2 is in development by Victory Games - now known as Bioware Victory. The game will reportedly use the Frostbite 2 game engine.

Generals 2

Check out the trailer above, and this thread on the official forums for more.

An EA Origin page has some additional details about the game:

Features

In the near future, world leaders are mere seconds from signing a global treaty and bringing an end to war as we know it when a devastating terrorist attack rips through the peace conference, killing all in attendance. In a world left with no politicians, diplomats, or activists, only the Generals remain. It's up to you to assume their roles, command their forces, and put an end to global terrorism once and for all.

Features:

  • All-Out War — Take control of three unique factions, competing for resources, building up your base of operation, and leading massive batteries of tanks, soldiers, and aircraft into battle.
  • Uncanny Sense of Realism — Frostbite 2 technology allows for visceral, visually stunning conflict at an epic scale. Incredibly detailed units and environments, dynamic physics, and exhilarating visual effects bring the battle to life in ways never before seen. This is the closest thing to real war without the consequences.
  • New Ways to Dominate or Ally with Your Friends — Go beyond classic deathmatch with a selection of new multiplayer game modes, designed with both cooperative and competitive play in mind.
  • Thrilling Campaign — Command the war on terror in an electrifying single-player campaign. Experience the dramatic story from multiple perspectives — from heroic General to crazed terrorist — while engaging the enemy in pulse-pounding tactical combat.
  • Ever-Evolving Experience — Enhance your game with an expanding array of downloadable content. From maps and units to factions, campaigns, and more, the fight against terrorism is deeper than ever.

First Advanced AI Mod Release in 5 Years

Over at C&C Labs, we have a special treat today for Zero Hour fans. For the first time in just over 5 years, we are proud to release a new version of the Advanced AI Mod for Zero Hour!

Over the past several months, r42 has been improving upon the original mod author's work. Today, we are pleased to officially announce his latest version, which can be downloaded from the mod's website.

For those unfamiliar with the mod, it improves the tactics used by computer players in Zero Hour. The mod was created to overcome the Zero Hour AI's predictability: after you've played enough skirmish matches, it becomes clear that the AI uses the same tactics, builds medicore bases, and often keeps too much cash in its banks for no particular reason. If you're a Zero Hour fan looking for more challenging skirmish games, then this mod is for you.

Full details are available at C&C Labs.
