Command & Conquer: Generals 2 was announced by Electronic Arts at 2011 Spike VGAs. It was announced that the definitive RTS game would be entirely multiplayer focused this time. However, a lot has changed since the official announcement of the game.
To begin with, the game will now be called merely as Command & Conquer entailing that it is more of a reboot of whole franchise rather than a direct sequel. Moreover, the studio will be called to as Victory Games instead of BioWare Victory.
However, the biggest highlight is that the game will be free-to-play primarily focused on multiplayer mode but will also include solo campaign and co-op mode. Victory Games announced this at Gamescom 2013. Along with that, Victory Games also announced that the forthcoming title will have small matches than its predecessors. The plan is to cut down the time to 35 to 40 minutes.
Another thing to note here is that there will be no live-action sequences present in the game. Although there is a possibility that they may appear in the final game, they won’t be present in the beta that will go live later this year.
The game is scheduled for a fall release and will only be distributed digitally. As of now, it is unclear how the hardcore fans will react to all these changes that are being induced in the game but we will know sooner than later.
In the meanwhile, tell us about your expectations for the game?
