“Today at gamescom, EA took a bold step to spearhead the industry’s digital revolution and announce Command & Conquer—the first free-to-play online game powered by the Frostbite 2 engine. The previously announced Command & Conquer Generals 2 has been transformed to be a part of this new digital experience, giving gamers complete access to the cutting-edge visuals, sound, and destruction of a full AAA real-time strategy game—for free.
“We are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command & Conquer into a premier online experience,” said Jon Van Caneghem, VP/GM at EA, in a release today. “For nearly two decades, this franchise has existed as something you buy; now we are creating a destination where our fans will be able to access the entire Command & Conquer universe they love, starting with Generals and continuing with Red Alert, Tiberium, and beyond. With Frostbite 2, we are able to keep an emphasis on the AAA quality our consumers expect while staying true to the RTS gameplay they know and love—all available online for free.”
Command & Conquer will be available as a free, client-based game for the PC in 2013. For more information and to register for the beta, please visit www.commandandconquer.com/free.
