Community manager EA_CIRE acknowledges that many will say "that this is not a 'true' C&C," but says that applied to the original Generals. For him, C&C "isn't just about Tiberium, Kane" and Yuri.
"It’s been more about fun to play, engaging, and high quality RTS experiences. And that’s what we’re aiming to deliver, just in a different way," continued EA_CIRE.
"The team here and I know that previous Command & Conquer titles had issues – some less, some more. C&C4 (yes, I just named it!) was especially far below the expectations and standards a lot of us had for C&C games. So we know how you guys feel – and I am talking a lot with our design team to discuss the game mechanics, features and meta-game of our new Command & Conquer in development." Beta sign-ups are open .
"As planned right now, the Beta will start in the first half of 2013, and will be the longest running beta phase in franchise history," EA_CIRE informed. It'll be a few more months before BioWare Victory starts rolling out new information about the new F2P Command & Conquer, which is powered by DICE's Frostbite 2 engine for full destruction.
"...it might be a few more months before we reveal more information – we don’t just want to tell you about the game, we want to show you." Check out the full C&C for more
