Just in case the words "Command & Conquer" and "free-to-play" hadn't got you wary enough for the upcoming C&C Generals 2, there's now this: the game is releasing without a singleplayer story mode.
During my recent interview with BioWare co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, we talked about the obvious things like Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
If Command & Conquer: Generals 2 is really a BioWare game (and it is, right?), then we should care about its story. Storytelling in video games, after all, is a BioWare hallmark.
In saying the next Command & Conquer game is coming from "BioWare", it seems EA is hoping a little of gamer's good will towards the RPG powerhouse will rub off on the game. Instead, unless Generals 2 is amazing, it's probably going to backfire.
