Command & Conquer 4 starts open beta

Command & Conquer 4 starts open beta

EA has quietly announced that Command & Conquer 4, the last game in the Tiberium Saga, is in open beta.

Electronic Arts has quietly announced the Command & Conquer 4, the latest game in the core C&C series (i.e. not Red Alert) has entered open beta.

The official site for the game reveals that gamers who pre-order the full game can get access to the beta, as well as some exclusive in-game missions that act as a prequel to the final game. If you're just interested in trying the beta out though then you'll need to head over to GameSpot and register for an account there.

Command & Conquer 4 is to be the last game in the long-running Tiberium Saga which began with the original game, though almost definitely not the final game in the series. It'll wrap up the GDC/Nod conflict and reveal Kane's intentions and origins once and for all.

The game will boast a lot of new gameplay features too - 5v5 online matches, more units, VOIP support and mobile bases, to name a few.

You can check out our Command & Conquer 4 preview for more information on the game if you don't want to check out the beta for yourself.

Let us know what you think of the direction C&C has taken lately in the forums.

i really want to know how well the new resource gathering will work in CnC.

This game is really not looking good. I hate the unit designs and the changes to the resource management. I know they're trying to be different, but it just does not look like a Command & Conquer game anymore. And what's with all the emphasis on co-op and other gameplay changes these days? Why does every title have to jump on the biggest trends? What's wrong with just delivering a rock-solid strategy game without all the gimmicks?

It's not really an open beta if it's only for people who pre-order.

It is an open beta, not just pre-order people.

Might have a look at the Beta of this as I already have a GameSpot account, but as Rkiver pointed out, there are so many other games coming out.

Used to play RA1 for HOURS, then RA2... Tiberian Sun was bad. I wonder if my RA2 CD is still lying around...

Hahaha I never got what was so special about RA2. It's childish beyond the point of self-indulgence, mediocre art design compared with RA1 too. TS beats it on every count.

I'm mildly depressed about CnC4. There's so little attempt to even acknowledge its roots anymore that I feel all I'll buy it for is the end to the story, finish and never look back :(

Global Defense... what's C?

IMO, RA1 was the best in Command n Conquer..

Tiberian Sun had some cool concepts, like altering terrain, underground units, but some major parts failed badly. IMO.
