C&C Generals 2 Screenshots & Concept Art!

EA Released a couple of High Resolution C&C Generals 2 Screenshots & Concept Art!
Personally I really like the amazing Graphics they pulled out of the FB2.0 Engine for RTS Goals!
GLA and the EU looks amazing and gives a great mood!
C&C Generals 2 seems how C&C Generals had to be in the first place. EU, GLA, China and USA with those selective Generals. As Sam Bass told in a Interview you could Select Generals like the (Tank General) for instance to Steam Roll some tanks and Specialties.

Take a Look at those amazing screenshots! And see ya in the Beta!

Command & Conquer Free “C&C Generals 2” Trailer

EA Released a Trailer at GamesCon from the new upcoming Free 2 Play Title Command & Conquer.
So far we personally things this is C&C Generals 2 but Free 2 Play, It has a Origin Installation but it wont be a Retail “Hardcopy” Game!

Also EA Removed the C&C Generals 2 Section on the main website of www.commandandconquer.com
So does that mean Generals 2 will be different or Command & Conquer “Free” is Generals 2 but just Renamed!

Story can be found on the official Command & Conquer Website! www.commandandconquer.com

I can’t express how happy I am to announce the next installment in the Command and Conquer franchise, Generals 2.  It’s been great to see the enthusiasm and activity within the community over the past year while you waited for more information, and I thank you all for your patience.  Since the announcement of this studio in February, we’ve been listening to your feedback and are excited to bring back the beloved, action-packed game-play you remember from C&C Generals, modernized for a new era, and built on industry leading technology.  What you see today is a tiny taste and just the beginning; we can’t wait to show you more.

Additionally, I am excited to announce that Victory Games has joined the new BioWare label within EA.  We are all huge fans of BioWare, especially of the uncompromised quality that comes along with every product.  Our mission here does not change—we’re still committed to making best-in-class strategy games—and joining the BioWare family will give us the tools we need in order to succeed.  This has been a seamless transition, as we share the same core values and passion for making games as BioWare, in order to deliver immersive, high-quality experiences for our fans.

More information will be coming in the near future, so sign up for the newsletter and check back in at www.commandandconquer.com for the latest!

Thank you,

Possible no Mod SDK Tools for C&C Generals 2!

As Battlefield Series fan and known Frostbite Engine Expert we probably don’t get Modding tools for C&C Generals 2. As we already learned from the past Battlefield Bad Company 2 Didn’t get Modding tools because the Frostbite 1.5 Engine SDK / Modding Tools were to complex to create mods / maps and require a lot of understanding. It was even hard for the Development Team to use the Frostbite 1.5 Tools. Now we got Frostbite to in Battlefield 3 We also did not get the Modding tools for new Frostbite 2.0 title Battlefield 3. As stated before on Q&A.

Posted by DICE

Q: Why not give the community the tools to make the maps if there is not time for the devs?
A: We will not release mod tools for Battlefield 3″ “It is not that we don’t want to”. The problem is the engine is to complicated in its current form. And our dev team also have problems with using the Frostbite 2.0 Development Kit.

So far we know it might be possible we do not get Modding Tools for C&C Generals 2 since it runs on the Frostbite 2.0 Engine! We are not saying there isn’t coming one but as we learned from the past no Public Modding Tools for Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3. Now People asking about Community created Maps! Yes, These maps are also build in the Frostbite 2.0 SDK. You can take the Unreal Development Kit as Example… All Scripts, Maps, Sounds, Kismet and more is done in the UDK and not in 3rd party tools.

Still we don’t know what will happens in 2012. So we have to wait for the new C&C Generals 2 title.
Maybe the Bioware Team is creating a easy version of the Frostbite 2.0 SDK Software and build a friendly modding tool of it for Public!

C&C Generals 2

Finally We can speak about C&C Generals 2, Without people not believing us. Well… We are happy to announce that EA’s new studio Victory Games & Bioware are going to release C&C Generals 2 in Year 2013. Yes we need to wait about 1 / 1,5 Year. But this time we going back to Generals but a bit more in the future! and will be deployed on the Frostbite 2 Engine which Need for Speed Run and famous FPS Game Battlefield 3 uses. Upcoming Weeks we will see a new website + brand new Media. EA also told us they are going to provide more in-game press shots!


 
Enjoy your very very short in-game cinematic trailer!
