Edited by paulunga

Nice

Probably didn't get it, did I?

Edit: Yup, that's what I get for opening several tabs.

Poor Bioware losing all autonomy and free will.

One of the funnest RTS games ever. I have faith that this new Bioware studio does the Generals franchise some justice. From what I've read, they definitely have the right idea. I think this is now my most anticipated game, cause god damn i loved the first ones.

This is being made by BioWare Victory, not BioWare Edmonton.

Well I'm not playing this then. It's a shame I used to love C&C.

Yeah EA really made this confusing. BioWare Vicotry is really just Victory games but re-branded as BioWare. This is one of the reasons i have more faith in this game coming out good. Victory games people do know how to make an RTS game, even tough their more recent releases weren't very good. But i think that the weight this name carries (Generals) is a motivator to make a good RTS game that does justice to the original Generals.

Still yet to play one as good as RA2

Yeah. I loved generals. I'm hoping this one is amazing.

sad to see, but not surprising.

Do want.

Yes! Yes!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved all the command and conquer games (CnC4 and Ra3 dont count), so if they can get back to what made those games great, then I'm well and truly sold.

Paladin Tank: Wrex.

Wrex: Shepard.

Tell me again, why is BioWare doing an RTS?

Posted by Abendlaender

The thought process behind this game probably went like this

"Good job everybody, we've ruined the Tiberium scenario as well as the Red Alert scenario, well done. Soo, what next?"

I loved Generals though, soo

Go right ahead and ruin Generals too while you're at it.

Because EA.

You don't need to be a general to know that all you need to do to win a war is build an army of Mammoth Tanks.

Posted by Subjugation

I can get behind Generals 2.

Also, this is NOT Bioware Edmonton, this is Bioware Victory which is a new studio under the Bioware name. The more you know ...

Goddammit. I'm going to be old in 2013 =(

Posted by Korwin

I wonder how long it will be before EA capitalizes on the Bioware name even further... perhaps licensing it out to other companies.

Bioware: Mountain Dew

Bioware: Cool Ranch

Bioware: Ribbed

Seriously... this name almost means nothing anymore.

Posted by EgoistShrugged

I am incredibly stoked for this. My friend and I have sunk countless hours into generals multiplayer. All I have to say is...We build for China!

Posted by DonPixel

I approve of this news.

Posted by thenexus

No one seems to have noticed that they flashed the Frosbite 2 engine up there. The engine that brought you Battlefield 3 is going to be running this game.

That engine on an RTS will be pretty dam sex on legs.

True, directx 11 will work wonders for large scale RTS gameplay (able to draw more copies of the same objects quicker i.e. tanks).

destruction 2.0, when viewed in first person, looks amazing. But I kinda doubt it would do the same when it comes to isometric pov.

I mean, we've saw buildings, walls, fences crumble and fall in RTS a lot to a point it probably wouldn't sound and look appealing anymore...

Posted by bulldog300

seems like overkill if you ask me. That type of graphic fidelity on a game that is arguably in c&c in name only doesn't seem to have a justifiable existence.

@RVonE: Guess it's cause they're EA's bitches now.

Technical and suicide bike rush!

GREAT NEWS EVERYONE, We've found an old IP we haven't touched in years, lets throw together a halfass attempt at an RTS and see how badly it bombs. cause you know CnC and RA3 just were misunderstood.

Seriously, EA, next your announce another Earth and Beyond or Nox game.

.................I miss Westwood

I OWN THE SKIES GENERAL.....YOU ARE NO MATCH FOR ME!

Posted by Cuuniyevo

@Vao: Hey, I like RA3. I don't know that it's GREAT, but it's good, silly fun. Also, Tim Curry and J K Simmons.

I can honestly think of no reason why EA would put this under the BW name though.

@EgoistShrugged: There is always a way in!

Looking forward to this. Generals is my favourite RTS of all time. Let's hope EA don't let Bioware fuck it up. Let's hope Bioware don't let EA let them fuck it up.

@Vao:

RA3 was misunderstood. I liked that game a lot.

I have a lot of love for Generals. Mostly because of the intro

Was referring to the Generals series, not the first game itself.

Well... The "series" would have been dead otherwise anyway. For all we know Generals 2 could be a great game, otherwise we just ignore it.

Nothing to lose!

To me, 'ruining' Generals is as absurd as the idea of Skylanders 'ruining' Spyro. Like, really? Generals was a competent and fun little game that people would have forgotten by now if it wasn't for the Command & Conquer name. If this trailer was for Act of War: Direct Action 2, there wouldn't be anywhere near this level of bitching.

I always love a good workman RTS. I'm looking forward to it.

This isn't BioWare, it's a new EA studio formerly called Victory Games, branded BioWare Victory. BioWare is basically now EA's label for anything that they don't want to be damaged by EA's own tarnished image. Basically, it's a cheap attempt to build hype and brand recognition. BioWare are now officially EA's bitches through and through.

Posted by MeatSim

Let the grossly mismanaging of the Bioware brand name by EA begin!

Posted by Xealot42

I liked Generals. I just hope it is a better game than CNC 4.
