Command & Conquer: new details and gameplay – video

Tuesday, 26th February 2013 17:46 GMT By Sam Clay

Command & Conquer mega fans, your franchise is returning. We sent VG247′s ‘video colonel’ Sam Clay to the front lines to get you all the details.

Speaking with Tim Orton, the game’s senior development director, he answers all the key questions. It’s free to play – so expect to pay for general campaigns, customization and xp boosts – however right now they aren’t showing specific details on this.

And as we previously reported, they’ll be adding the other C&C franchises into this game. So, fans of Red Alert and Tiberium rejoice.

Command & Conquer is looking to have a closed beta test in the spring, which will open up later in the year. It’s PC only right now, so hopefully we’ll hear about a Mac version soon.

    I don’t like how it seems that generals will be a thing you have to pay for. Seems to me that would unbalance the gameplay. Imagine if StarCraft did that, Terran and Zerg for free, Protoss you gotta pay 10$ for. That would just be outragous.
    Now i understand we’ll have 3 factions for free to choose from, but still, something affecting gameplay in a multiplayer game should be available to all…

    Game looks slick, but free2play + EA = Death sentence

    and I just don’t understand how F2P model can work here. Stuff will be unbalanced as hell.

    to be fair it can’t be worse than C&C 4 <.<

    Certainly looks cool and you can’t argue about the price :P

    The question is why would I switch from Starcraft II to C&C? It looks good but what’s the reason I’d pick up this game?
