EA makes C&C Generals 2 Free 2 Play


Electronic Arts, in a not so surprising move decided to put Generals 2 into F2P mode, check below for more details on why such dick move was made.
We all know that Command and Conquer is possibly one of the most cherished franchises for many people who love RTS gaming. Alas the last few installments left the community with a bad taste in their mouth and this might leave them completely with bad breath.

Sorry folks, we are F2P and ultimately Pay2Win! Right in your childhood!
C&C is now another franchise who plays with the F2P model, branded with its "new" Frostbite 2 engine and being made by EA's Victory Games under the Bioware namehold, a company which apparently started going to the dark side based by some of the comments of the majority of players due to very bad choices (green, blue and red if I recall them).

The game will be available somewhere in 2013 and here is the official comment of EA:

With a familiar blend of cerebral, strategic gameplay and fun, fast-paced action, Command & Conquer will deliver an authentic and modern RTS experience that will instantly exhilarate longtime fans and captivate new players. Gamers can sign up for a chance to be among the first to try the closed beta of Command & Conquer at www.CommandandConquer.com/free.
"We are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command & Conquer into a premier online experience," said Jon Van Caneghem, VP/GM at EA. "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, 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.



If you want to sign up for this close beta of Karkand RTS Command and Conquer Generals 2 click HERE. But there are a few questions that remind, and the one that comes to mind is what will happen to the players who already pre-ordered it? and why does the environment looks so similar to Battlefield 3 only resized and redesigned to blow up? and most importantly why would you sacrifice, again, a so cherished franchise and alienate its community? No single player, why?

  6. Face - Time, originally released in June 2010, is an Apple created video chat application that allows any device running on i - OS
    or Macintosh computer featuring a Face - Time camera to connect to
    one another. When it is in the Viewer you can go to the Filters
    tab and make corrections to change it between horizontal and
    vertical if you want. Unfortunately, I have too many colleagues
    out there that are just too intimidated by new forms of technology,
    especially when their students are going to
    be more informed and skilled with it than they are.
