Community Conquers: C&C Online Salvages Multiplayer

The Command and Conquer franchise is almost twenty years old and it may already be on its last legs. The free-to-play Generals 2 had been rebranded as simply 'Command & Conquer' when EA decided to pull the plug and it's all been quiet on the (formerly) Westwood front since then. Indeed, the cries of havoc and unleashing of time travelling, Tesla-faced dogs of war were…

General Admission: Command & Conquer Beta Early 2013

Blue draws my attention to a blogpost over at the Command & Conquer website. The game, which is free to play and seemingly distanced from the Generals 2 subtitle, is set to have "the longest running beta phase in franchise history", beginning in the first half of 2013. I don't think that "longest running" C&C beta means a great deal, it'd be surprising if the…

Command and Conquer Single Player Hinted At

The forthcoming Frostbite-powered free to play Command and Conquer sequel will be enjoying a single player campaign after all, as an interview by Polygon with Frank Gibeau, president of EA Labels announces, going back on the previous No-Single Player reveal. Or will it? It's not actually that clear. Gibeau sounded perhaps a little defensive in his statement, talking more about fan reaction than detailing the…

Red Alert Free

Do you see what I did there? Because 'free' rhymes with 'three' and... I'm so sorry. It was either that or an 'In Soviet Russia, retro RTS downloads you' gag. Yes, the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert is now available for no-pennies, to promote the upcoming RA3 and to celebrate today marking 13 years of C&C all-told. Which seems an odd birthday to make…

“Well What’s Happenin’, C&C Community?”

I hesitate slightly to post about this, as the last time I talked about C&C: Red Alert's music and offhandedly mentioned that it had never especially moved me personally, I received a furious email from an Angry Internet Man about how I had zero music taste and should show some respect for what its composer Frank Klepacki had done for gaming. Going on the below…

Like C&C3, But With Better Water

Your attention, Comrades. Beneath the cut is the first trailer for Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, which has popped up on the face of the internet like some sort of damned-pinko-commie-scum pimple outbreak just this afternoon (in Her Majesty's Royal Imperial Commonwealth All That Is Right Time anyway - presumably it's some godforsaken hour in the morning for ye Yanquis). It brings with it…

The Staring Eyes of Natasha Henstridge

Which is my way of distracting you from the fact we're linking to a lot of stuff we've written elsewhere today. This time it's Alec's review of Kane's Wrath which PC Gamer have put on their electro-net-commuicato-think masters C&VG. In it he says things like... oh, go and read it. Now... I've reviewed it. Jim's done it for someone else. Walker is clearly never going…

Tiberium: ED-209?

EA have released some more details, and the above screenshot of an ED-209*, to announce Tiberium, their squad-based FPS set in the C&C universe. Chris Plummer, executive producer at EA Los Angeles, said: “After two years of pre-production, it is exciting to finally reveal this game and its rich fiction to the world. We’ve put a lot of effort into evolving the tactical shooter experience…
