Command & Conquer Generals 2 Will Be Free-to-Play and Powered by Frostbite 2
EA today announced, at Gamescom, that in an attempt to spearhead the new digital revolution that’s clearly making its way into the games industry, they will be publishing the previously announced Command & Conquer Generals 2 using the Free-to-Play model.
Not only will the game be Free-to-Play but it will also looks like any other AAA title that you may go out and buy thanks to the hugely impressive, and absolutely stunning, Frostbite 2 engine.
“We are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command and 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 and 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.”
Command & Conquer will be available as a free, client-based game for the PC in 2013.
