EA has surprised by announcing that the next Command And Conquer game will be free-to-play.
Command And Conquer Generals 2 is to be launched as a free-to-play title and is fully powered by EA's next-generation Frostbite 2 game engine bringing triple-A quality real-time strategy action to the free-to-play world.
EA GM and VP Jon Van Canegham said, "We are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command and 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 and 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."
Command And Conquer Generals 2 is due to launch as a client-based free-to-play title in 2013. Registration for beta places can be done through the game's official website.
