Veteran Command and Conquer players will be happy to see mechanics from the original series. Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight introduced new mechanics and removed original gameplay elements like base building. The new Command and Conquer will stay true to old school features like resource gathering, constructions and army management. Just like RPG games, Command and Conquer has factions. Players get to choose from: European Union, Global Liberation Army and Asian Pacific Alliance. Each faction has different types of units. European Union focuses on technological progress. Global Liberation Army is a military faction. The Asian Pacific Alliance is a new Command and Conquer faction. Even though Command and Conquer is an online game with multiplayer scenarios the community expressed its disappointment towards the lack of a single player campaign. Electronic Arts officials assured fans that Command and Conquer is not a done deal and it will respond to players’ feedback. The development team got to work and it was announced that Command and Conquer will also have single player content.
Players fight Command and Conquer battles on land and air. Armies can contain infantry and aerial units. Heavy artillery is also on the Command and Conquer units list. Resources are very important. All building and units cost resources. The larger your army is, the more resources you’ll need. Players will often fight for resource control. Resource management is just as important as resource gathering. It’s good to have lots of resources but it’s even better knowing how to spend them. Players need to prepare their base in case of attacks. Defensive structures must be built. Command and Conquer is a free to play MMO with advanced graphics and combat animations. There are multiple Command and Conquer game modes. Players can quietly enjoy a single player mission, team up for co-op gameplay or compete in PvP scenarios. Command and Conquer features downloadable content.
