C&C4: A Little Lore Goes A Long Way

Semi-surprise sequel Command & Conquer 4 (its subtitle is still TBC; there’s currently a contest for fans to submit one. I’ve submitted ‘Those little red guys and little blue guys still really don’t like each other’) is starting to drop hints about its mooted formula shake-up all over the shop. Or, at least, people are cheekily scanning and summarising magazine preview features, the distillation of which is already on the game’s Wikipedia page. I’ll be sharing some thoughts on some early code I saw in a few days, but meantime here’s some detail on where the story’s going, in the former of an FMV trailer chattered over by C&C4’s ‘lore-master’ Samuel Bass.

NOD and GDI chumming up? Won’t last long, mark my words. The trailer’s also a taste of a purported tonal shift to something more gritty than the (apparently unintentional, a C&C4 producer told me on Tuesday) campiness of C&C3’s cutscenes. Hmm. Good luck with that.
