C&C Labs News Wire

— Wednesday, August 18, 2010 —

We've got six new screens and two new posters to show you over at C&C 3: The Forgotten, all from skirmish maps created by staff member Predatore. Buenos Aires Night is up first. It's a map set far from the killing fields of Europe commonly seen in The Forgotten's campaign. An elegant city, this battlefield is no less deadly. Its asymmetric urban layout yet symmetric resource allocation makes it an ideal locale for balanced and interesting combat. The expert lighting work gives the city a unique character, but reveals a cityscape that, however modern, is still torn by war.

Hurricane Desert is a two player skirmish map that reveals how this war has spread to the farthest reaches of the Earth. Set in a desert, this asymmetrical battlefield still offers balanced and competitive play. Huge rock formations, elegant cliffsides, and a lone water source offer endless tactical possibilities. This desert is anything but dull.


See more media here. We also have a new piece of "Forgotten Fiction"--our series of story artifacts set in the time period just before the mod picks up. This one is called "The Code of the Open Hand" and is a GDI intelligence report. You can read it here and can learn more about our story--including the other Forgotten Fictions--here.

C&C World Interview with C&C 2142

Webmaster extraordinaire chickendippers over at C&C World has posted an interview with derek from the C&C 2142 modification, a mod that combines elements from Battlefield 2142 and C&C 3. It's an interesting concept and an interesting read. Here's a piece: 

Chickendippers: Can we expect to see any familiar C&C units up-close and personal?
derek328: BF2142 and C&C3 are very similar in many ways, so players can definitely feel resemblances between units, like EU’s Tiger and GDI’s Predator tanks. Vehicles aside, infantry units will play a much bigger role in CNC2142 – they will have a clear selection of upgrades available from BF2142, ranging from motion mines to RDX explosives. With a well coordinated plan, expect to see these soldiers of the future wreck havoc!

You can read the full thing here. It's certainly a slow time in the C&C community, but high-quality mods are keeping us all afloat until the next C&C game is announced.
