Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, brings Westwood Studios' popular real time strategy game, C&C: Red Alert 2 into the FPS pespective, using the w3d engine. You will be able to experience, first hand, what it feels like to fill the boots of an Allied GI battling the communist might of the Soviet Union, or a Soviet Conscript vowing to take back what was lost to the Allies during the first great war. Classic units return such as the versatile Allied IFV to the mighty Soviet Apocalypse Assualt Tank to the gargantuan Allied Aircraft Carrier to the mad Giant Squids. This game features all of the units and structures for the Allied and Soviet sides from both RA2 and the Yuri's Revenge Expansion. The Apocalypse is Rising Commander. Are you prepared for it? (Credit goes to everyone who has donated and contributed to this mod. We shall not let you down).

Blog 170 features some upcoming front page changes, new Soviet Conscript WIP and funny ingame shot!

Website Changes


Over the course of the next month or two One_Winged_Angel is going to start updating the website with some new content relevant to AR. This has started with the inclusion of a new website banner.

He shall be adding in unit and structure profiles along with new information about AR that you won't get anywhere else. Look for this in the coming months.

Conscript Update


One_Winged_Angel has been continuing modelling work on the conscript. he's now decided the selectable variants that we'll be using in AR.

You'll be able to pick from 3 different models. One without any headgear at all, one with a classic-style gas mask (as scene in the RA2 and it's FMV's) and finally a more modern gas masked version. Below is an image of the more modern gas mask on the conscript.

Breakdancing


We were doing some ingame testing the other day and One_Winged_Angel got killed whilst in the soviet base. Just as he died, BigCheese256 took this screenshot. It looks a bit like my GI is breakdancing, so OWA thought he'd share this funny with you guys.
