Yesterday, EA announced a brand new free-to-play platform for the Command & Conquer series starting with the recently announced Command & Conquer: Generals 2.
Powered by the Frostbite 2 engine and developed by BioWare Victory, Command & Conquer 2 will be available as a free-to-play PC title via Origin in 2013.
EA VP/GM Van Caneghem states in a recent press release, “we are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command & Conquer into a premier online experience. 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.”
