EA to Release Command & Conquer Generals 2 in 2013

Generals 2 is promised to deliver "cutting-edge visuals, sound, and destruction that will bring a new level of fidelity to strategy games." The release date is sometime in 2013.

The story of Command & Conquer Generals 2 puts users in the scenario of terrorist attacks that disrupt a world peace treaty, kill all leading politicians and put the globe's military powers in control. The player assumes military control to defeat terrorism. EA said that gamers will direct "three unique factions in a thrilling single-player campaign, and with friends online in cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes."

“For the last eight years, Command & Conquer fans have been begging for a return to the Generals universe,” said Jon Van Caneghem, Executive Producer of Command & Conquer Generals 2. “With Generals 2, we are bringing the Command & Conquer franchise back to its roots, blending strategic gameplay with fast-paced action -- all set in visually stunning theaters of war powered by Frostbite 2.”

The original Command & Conquer game was released in 1995. More than 30 million copies of the series have been sold since then.

    Generals was good, but Zero Hour was Great. I do hope they stand clear from CnC's 4 downfall.. Was the worst CnC game i have ever played.. I played it for about 2 hours and was glad i bought it for 5 bucks on steam. It was literally a worthless piece of garbage, i couldn't believe EA would let a CnC game go down in shit like that, i mean even Red Alert 3 was moderately good, but that was crap, complete crap. Here's to hoping it hits all cylinders like Generals and Zero hour before it.. I will let the reviews judge it, i will not be persuaded out of it by users who judge it right off the bat just because it's EA. Live with it. This is just a teaser trailer, what we see isn't even gameplay. If it's using the Frostbite 2 engine I'm expecting amazing things from this game. But only time will tell, cannot wait to tell my friends, we are truly Generals/Zero hour fans and we still LAN it up play it to this day =D Super Excited to see more actual game play trailers from it soon!!

    About time, but unfortunately I hoped Russia to be officially in this game, and some arab enhanced armies...lets hope they reconsider the factions and the age (Current)... :D
    Team that I wish:
    1-USA.
    2-China.
    3-Russia.
    4-Arabs (Syria).
    5-Israel.
    6-Europe.
    A bit long but will deserve every penny... :)

    sorry but Syria is a joke if they had to include someone from the middle east they are better off with Iran or Egypt they both have much stronger armies
