Gamers can sign up now for a chance to play and offer feedback on Victory Games' upcoming free-to-play Command & Conquer. (And there's an E3 trailer in here, too.)
Command & Conquer was revealed last year as a free-to-play online game and today, Electronic Arts announced that closed beta testing will begin this summer. Developer Victory Games says it is dedicated to "player-driven design," with a significant portion of game content set to be based on community activity and feedback.
"Being a live platform, we have the freedom to be responsive and to deliver content that our players care about at launch and beyond," Victory Games General Manager Jon Van Caneghem said. "As developers, this sort of direct and evolving relationship with our audience is incredibly exciting and we can't wait to hear what players think about this new Command & Conquer experience."
The new game will return to the "core gameplay" of the series and offer a variety of unique Generals, each with his or her own arsenal, style and personality, allowing players to formulate strategies based on their own personal gameplay preferences. Command & Conquer will feature three unique factions - the Global Liberation Army, the European Union and the Asia Pacific Alliance - battling for worldwide domination in a variety of multiplayer modes both old and new.
Command & Conquer is set to launch later this year, exclusively for the PC. Closed beta signups are being taken now at commandandconquer.com.
