EA Promotional Page for Generals

Transnote from Renegade Generals has found this promotional page for CNC Generals! It's got some neat information on it. Here's a few of the things:
Advanced Player Vetrancy - As General, smart decisions and victories over your enemies will gain you experience points. These points can then be allocated to unlocking new units and weapons of mass destruction.
Battle Honors - It's not about wins anymore, it's about medals you earn. Players can now collect "Battle Honors" as the progress through the solo and multiplayer game. These medals are based on conquering parts of the game or employing a unique type of strategy to achieve an objective during a mission. All medals will be displayed next to a players name for bragging rights when they are logged in for online play.
Multiplayer Madness - Wreak havoc online, either cooperatively with 8 of your friends or go head-to-head in all-out global domination with a multitude of other players. New features include:
* Advanced filtering options
* Team Quick Matching
* Instant Video Replay
* Personal Ladders
* Observer mode
That information about experience points sounds pretty neat. Looks like the development team got that idea from Warcraft III. Battle Honors going to be cool too. They're going to give Generals a new, unique feature that most other RTS games don't have. Unique features are good. Anyway, click here for the rest of the information found on the page.
