Heute gab EA anlässlich der derzeit in Los Angeles abgehaltenen E3 eine Pressemitteilung zu C&C heraus und veröffentlichte einige interessante Details auf Twitter!

Gestern warteten viele C&C Fans auf die EA Pressekonferenz und wurden leider enttäuscht, als sie neue Informationen zu Command and Conquer erwarteten. Heute gab EA indes eine Pressemitteilung zum Free 2 Play Titel heraus. In der offiziellen Pressemitteilung wurden die üblichen Marketingphrasen umhergeworfen – bis dahin nichts neues, weiter heißt es „Victory Games is dedicated to letting players control more — more Generals, more strategy and more direct feedback in the game.“ – Hier wird noch einmal betont, mit welchen großen Mengen an Generälen man plant und dass die Spielergemeinde stark in die Entwicklung mit einbezogen werden soll.

Weiter wird der Start der Betaphase in der Pressemitteilung nun auf „später im Sommer“ terminiert. „Players can sign up now for a chance to access to the Command & Conquer closed beta**, starting later this summer, at www.CommandandConquer.com.“ Bisher war immer von ersten Jahreshälfte gesprochen worden.

Gute Nachrichten gibt es dennoch von Twitter, hier wurde nun nämlich offiziell bestätigt, dass die Closed Alpha für einige Teile der Community bereits begonnen hat und immer mehr Spieler eingeladen werden!

EA and Victory Games Put Players in Control with a New Generation of Command & Conquer

Sign Up to the Closed Beta for a Chance to be among the First to Experience the Future of Real-time Strategy Gaming

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that Command & Conquer™, the next installment of the award-winning real-time strategy franchise from Victory Games™, will be entering closed beta this summer. Set in the popular Command & Conquer Generals series, the new Command & Conquer is raising the bar for the Real-time Strategy (RTS) genre by delivering unparalleled immersion and best in class visuals and dynamic physics, all powered by the award-winning Frostbite™ game engine. Victory Games is dedicated to letting players control more — more Generals, more strategy and more direct feedback in the game. Command & Conquer will launch in 2013 as a free*, live service. Players can sign up now for a chance to access to the Command & Conquer closed beta**, starting later this summer, at www.CommandandConquer.com.

Victory Games is dedicated to player-driven design, where a large part of evolving, developing and expanding game content is based on community activity.

„The community has always been and will continue to be paramount to the success of Command & Conquer,“ said Jon Van Caneghem, General Manager of Victory Games, EA. „Being a live platform, we have the freedom to be responsive and to deliver content that our players care about at launch and beyond. As developers, this sort of direct and evolving relationship with our audience is incredibly exciting and we can’t wait to hear what players think about this new Command & Conquer experience.“

The next generation of Command & Conquer will mark a return to the core gameplay that put the series on the map. In addition to strategic, fast-paced, high action, Command & Conquer also introduces a large variety of Generals, which gives each commander the freedom to conquer on their own terms. Players will be in full command of the battlefield as they take control of dozens of unique Generals across three varied factions — Global Liberation Army, European Union and Asia Pacific Alliance. Each General has a unique arsenal, battle style, and personality, offering a wide variety of tactics to dominate. Whether a player favors strategies focused on base defense, stealth, rushing or firepower — there is a different General to accommodate every play style.

Command & Conquer is redefining RTS gaming for the next generation, amplifying classic gameplay elements for a new era of PC gaming and introducing all new ways to play in the genre. From new modes never before seen in the genre including Onslaught, an objective based co-op mode where players team up to defend their base from enemy hordes, to the return of popular modes like Multiplayer Deathmatch, and Solo Skirmish, gamers of all styles and skill levels will have more ways to play than ever before.

Command & Conquer will be available as a free, live service for the PC later in 2013. To watch the E3 2013 Official Trailer, „Welcome Back, General“, visit http://youtu.be/80_x6bmzluc.
