Victory: "We Need To Wash Away The Stain Of Command & Conquer 4"

Command & Conquer 4 wasn't exactly a triumph. Boasting a borderline-offensive singleplayer campaign, hefty DRM measures, unbalanced multiplayer, and a diversion from the base-building strategy upon which the series made its name, it was met with mixed review and a fair bit of fan backlash.

According to Samuel Bass, lead designer on the upcoming Command & Conquer F2P title, the new game needs o make up for C&C 4's mistakes.

“The first thing we said was, we need to kind of wash the stain of Command & Conquer 4 away,” said lead designer Samuel Bass [via GameInformer].

“To do that, you really have to get back to your roots, to get back to what it was that made your fans your fans in the first place.”

Bass expressed that the primary thing he wants is for players to load up the game and say "Holy shit. This is a Command and Conquer game."

The game itself, formerly known as Command & Conquer: Generals 2, was set to be a full retail release, but EA rebranded the game to simply Command & Conquer last year, announcing that the game would now be free to play.

So their fixing it by making it free to play... Sure it sometimes works but I've yet to see EA get it remotely right. I'm sorry C&C is dead to me (and i've been a player since the original on DOS). EA sure know how to destroy a series.

Surely going back to the games' roots would be to make an awesome singleplayer game with an interesting story.
