Command & Conquer Has Generals From All Walks Of Life

Should give you a general sense of what it's all about

The game formerly known as Generals 2, probably also known within internal EA circles as ‘please rescue the franchise after we repeatedly tried to murder it with really silly decisions’ but officially known as simply Command & Conquer has fully broken cover at last. In what way? Well, this week is E3. I’ll give you three guesses as to how an upcoming videogame might try to promote itself right now, and the first two don’t count.

IT’S A TRAILER OH MY GOD WHERE DO THEY GET THEIR IDEAS FROM

Not sure about the comedy ethnic stereotypes, but I suppose as long as every nation gets an equal beating with the lampooning stick it could get away with it. It does look proper C&Cy though, doesn’t it? After the dual gut-punches of the admirably experimental but ultimately miserable C&C4 and the awful FarmVille-with-Tiberium browser monstrosity Alliances, it’s good to see C&C getting itself back to basics.

And then, of course, taking said basics to a free-to-play, possibly multiplayer-only model. I remain open-minded on that front, but I’m glad they’re doing it with the less story-based Generals sub-franchise rather than the Tiberian setting. I’d quite like some more bokers, Kane-related cutscenes, ideally with all the pseudo-mystical aliens gubbins gotten rid of.
