Patch 1.03!!

EA has released info that patch 1.03, for Generals: Zero Hour, is on its way. Here's the press release:
Mark your calendars for FEBRUARY 28, 2005..."THE DAY WE STRIKE BACK"

To the supreme commanders of the Command & Conquer(TM) community, On February 28, 2005, please initiate online play of Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour or visit generals.ea.com for a direct download of the 1.03 patch.

On this day, we will support the Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour community at large with a direct strike! Partnering with community allies, we reached out to seek the assistance of the German Command & Conquer community to develop a significant patch. This update will dynamically change the balance of the game based upon the combined deep analysis and feedback from these avid fans. Intelligence also reports that the recently released ACETON-Balancing-Modification, developed exclusively by gamers and known extremely well within the community, helped to underline the core design of the patch.

"We recognize the hard work put into the ACETON modification, and the fantastic analysis and feedback from the EA GAMES(TM) supported Community Team in Germany (www.communityteam.de)," said Harvard Bonin, Senior Producer at EA Los Angeles. "While this patch addresses the most common cheats and technical errors seen in recent months, it is going to give Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour a dynamic face-lift inspired by community feedback."

For full details on patch v1.03, please visit generals.ea.com

As your new Major General of Community Operations for the Command & Conquer series I will take every liberty to ensure that this community is heard and protected. If you'd like to be among the first to hear about the latest in the Command & Conquer universe in the coming months, please direct your friends to sign up for this newsletter, and stay tuned.

Reinforcements have arrived!
