Command & Conquer was one of the titles showcased during EA’s gamescom press conference yesterday.
The big news was that campaign missions are in development for the game, and that based on community feedback Victory Games are working on “compelling, high quality” singleplayer and co-operative episodic story-driven campaign missions that will be available in early 2014.
Command & Conquer will be available for the PC in 2013 as a free live service, with the development team being committed to delivering new content (including new generals and new maps) to the game.
If you’re a fan of the series don’t forget that you can sign up for the Command & Conquer closed beta over here.
Head on down below for the campaign missions reveal trailer as well as in-depth look at what the first campaign missions will involve:
“The first Campaign Missions will follow the Asia-Pacific Alliance (APA), as they attempt to stabilize a world that once again teeters on the brink of war. Having sat comfortably as the world’s foremost geopolitical power for nearly a decade, the APA finds itself challenged on all fronts. The upstart European Union (EU), a high-tech, single-state entity with an increasingly expansionist agenda continues to flex her muscles, while a series of increasingly bloody uprisings have torn key APA and EU satellite nations asunder. Rumors point to a newly reconstituted Global Liberation Army (GLA) as the instigator, but witnesses have described technology far beyond the reach of any normal terrorist organization. Concerned, the APA dispatches an elite force to infiltrate the latest, most volatile rebellion, one targeting an EU backed dictator. Their mission- learn the truth about the GLA, undermine the EU and restore peace to the globe.”
During the press conference we also saw two community managers battling for supremacy in Command & Conquer. You can watch that “King of Köln” battle in the video below:
