BioWare's Command And Conquer Becomes Free-To-Play Game
EA announced at Gamescom that they're no longer developing real-time strategy Command and Conquer Generals 2. Instead, they've rolled Generals 2 into a free-to-play PC game simply called Command and Conquer.
Command and Conquer is described as an online platform that lets players access the "entire Command and Conquer universe." The Generals universe will be available upon C&C's launch in 2013. In time, though, EA will also add Red Alert, Tiberium and more.
Like other C&C games, this new F2P experience will let players create bases, gather resources and lead armies. It will be powered by Battlefield 3's engine Frostbite 2, which means we can expect destructible environments, dynamic physics and very fetching visuals.
Command & Conquer's development is being handled by BioWare Victory. This studio, originally known as Victory Games, was founded back in 2010. Its sole purpose is to work on the C&C franchise.
EA will let players try out the game in a closed beta. For a chance at participating, register at the game's website.
