The lights are on
EA and Victory Games are preparing the next entry in the classic Command & Conquer series. The title, which is currently in beta, is free-to-play.
In the following two developer diaries, you'll get a feel for how Victory is capturing the feel of Command & Conquer with super weapons, generals with different sets of abilities and units, and constant balancing thanks to fan feedback.
The second video is a look at the design of a unit from inception through animation. Balancing, design, visual effects, and sound, all combine to make each unit type feel unique.
Command & Conquer is in beta now with a launch planned for later this year.

Pretty big fan of RTS games like this one. I havent picked one up since Red Alert 3, but I anxiously await this. Not holding my breath, but it would be nice to have a console port somewhere along the line.
Having played all but C&C4 and Kane's Wrath I have to say that my outlook for a F2P title in the franchise is very bleak. Guess they'll kill this like MS killed AoE...and that one was at its peak!
I played all the C&Cs and I don't want to see the "you need to pay this much special coins to unlock this general" sign in my game :|
thanks for wrecking another franchise EA.
If i pay 60$ and get everything,then its ok for me!!!
My truck is loaded!
this looks like its going down the path of COH online, both in start and ending.
