you can't get more official than scans of C&C3 on a frontcover of PCGamer.. and more bad scans of the game in action in the magazine.
hopefully we will be seeing more of it at E3 soon :)
C&C 3 has been "officially announced" at least 4 times now.

Call me stupid but I cant find either the cover image or bad game scans ?
04-19-2006, 03:17 PM
cause first decade wasn't enough?
04-19-2006, 05:40 PM
Because First Decade wasn't a new game
Been waiting on C&C 3 for some time now....though I had hoped for Red Alert 3 more.

This is the only game I'm really looking forward to right now. I so hope EA do not f*ck this one up. I was not too fond on Generals.

I dunno if I'm just somehow being stupid, but all those links in the first post all go to gamespot...
However, I'm totally looking forward to C&C 3.

Generals is an fun game but still has the potential to bring this thread off topic. lets try not to do that...
PS: I know you were joking around KRZ9000, and I can see your point on how that game reflects current events.

I've been a huge fan of this rts genre since good ol' Dune 2. I've spent countless hours on C&C, Starcraft and Warcraft. Lets just say, that my school grades would probably have looked a lot better if it had not been for these games.. At one time I think you can say the only thing that was on my mind, was to reach the worlds top10players in the Red Alert ladder. I think I reached 20 or something..
Generals was a good game in its own way, but I did not find it to have any C&C feeling.
I did not like the 3D graphics that much, I found most of the buildings to probably be one of the ugliest buildings I've ever seen in any rts. At least I think so. Also was no fan of the more instant and stressing action feel it had, that they skipped proper harvesting and stuff. The harvesting (if it even qualifies to be called that anymore) in Generals is very fast, and therefore, for me, it feels non-existent. Call me old fashion, but I like the somewhat traditonal slower start in these type of games.
Therefore I think Warcraft3 still is the best of the 3D rts games. The buildings in wc3 are much stronger, therefore takes longer time to destroy. Many of the more advanced buildings actually takes some time to upgrade and build. And the good old harvesting is unchanged, it has not been shortened in anyway. Overall, it was not that stressfull experience as most of these games has become today.
So my personal fears for C&C3 are:
- that they will more or less skip the base contructing (like many of the recent rts has done).
- that they will fasten up the harvesting even more then in Generals, or completely skip it (again, as many of the recent rts has done).
- too many way too powerfull weapons, which was also something I did not like that much about Generals. Once you had the upperhand, you could crush the weaker side in a few minutes. Especially in Ground Zero. I get the feeling that they wanted to make Generals a much more fast and stressing game. Basically a more "instant action" kind of game, then the previous ones. I'm sure a lot of people probably like this, but I prefer these games as they used to be. Why fix something that ain't broken is my thoughts about this. But I understand that the developers wants to think of new things to affect the gameplay, and again, I'm sure a lot of people like the way they are taking the genre.

..and official press release from EA:
The Genre Defining Series is Back!
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 20, 2006 – The epic struggle between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and The Brotherhood of NOD continues…and the third Tiberium War is about to begin. Welcome back, Commander. Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that Command & Conquer™, the groundbreaking series that put the Real-time Strategy (RTS) genre on the map, is returning in full force with Command & Conquer™ 3 Tiberium Wars*. This highly-anticipated next chapter takes the popular series back to its roots in the Tiberium universe and features the fast, fluid gameplay that Command & Conquer is known for and a gripping story that will redefine storytelling in RTS games.
It is 2047 and the stakes could not be higher. Tiberium—a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth—is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The GDI, a high-tech alliance of the world’s most advanced nations, is fighting to contain Tiberium, but Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of The Brotherhood of NOD has other plans for Earth. Kane’s secret society turned superpower is bent on using Tiberium to take control and transform humanity into his twisted vision of the future. All-out war rages over Tiberium and the fate of the planet rests in the balance.
"Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars combines fast-paced gameplay with new ways to tell a story in an RTS game," said Mike Verdu, Executive Producer at EA Los Angeles (EALA).

"We have been waiting to reveal this game for quite some time and are thrilled to bring the series back to where it all began," said Louis Castle, VP of Creative Development at EA Los Angeles (EALA) and co-founder of Westwood Studios, creator of the Command & Conquer series. "The Tiberium universe is a personal favorite of mine, and this saga’s new direction will prove to be a worthy addition to one of the most celebrated RTS franchises."

That promotion picture is not a screenshot, its a homemade wallpaper made by a fan :)

Everyone can see it is not a pure screenshot, you clearly see that quick sketching done on top. So it is probably supposed to be like that.
But are you sure it is by a fan? Any links? Every gamesite has taken the picture in, never seen they have done that for fan stuff before? Of course, they could have been tricked..guess that must have happened before. But anyway, I must say, if it is real, it was a rather poor choice for a first promo.

Bring it on! Give me an MKIII this time! Whoooohooo!
