Electronic Arts and Bioware revealed Saturday that Command & Conquer Generals 2 will be released for the PC in 2013.
Strategy game fans may remember the first Generals game, which was released in 2003. The game let players control the military forces of the United States and China as well as the “Global Liberation Army.” Given that the GLA was obviously an analog for al Qaida, I remember being kind of surprised that there was not more controversy surrounding that release.
Here’s a bit from from EA’s announcement of the new game:
In Command & Conquer Generals 2,
world leaders are mere seconds away from signing a peace treaty and
bringing an end to a global war when a devastating terrorist attack rips
through the conference, killing everyone in attendance, leaving only
the world’s military superpowers in control. It’s up to you to assume
their roles, take command of their forces and conquer global terrorism
once and for all. Players will take control of three unique factions in a
thrilling single-player campaign, and with friends online in
cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.
And here’s the short trailer:
