Has anyone tried this out yet? I just got an email giving me a closed alpha key. Downloading it now, shame they didn't just go with Generals 2.

Just what C&C are we talking about? But since they totally wrecked the franchise I don't think I'm even interested anymore.

The new one, it's just called Command and Conquer. It was suppose to be Generals 2, but they scrapped the name and made it F2P.

 

What game franchise hasn't EA wrecked? I've downloaded it, but I'm finding it hard to hit the play button to check out what it's like...

This reminds me I should download RA2 again.

There are good F2P games, and there are bad F2P games (among the good ones are Neverwinter and - surprisingly - DC Universe Online and Planetside 2); don't assume that an F2P game is going to become/devolve into P2W - which none of the three titles I named has devolved into.

Downloading on the laptop now, and will download on the desktop tomorrow morning I guess, and check it out.

I base my assumption on EA != Valve and so far all of their F2P games have been an utter disappointment. And as people have confirmed I guessed right.

Valve doesn't really do any F2P games, and EA does some good F2P games.

Shame as I'd be interested in a Generals 2.

Would also be interested in the same sort of game but with realistic "items" from world war 1, 2, current wars.  No futuristic stuff.

I loved Battleforge for quite the while.  I like the new C&C for the most part but it's clearly not done.
