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 Assault 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).

This week, we have some cel-shaded renders from One Winged Angel, more of the ever improving Dune Patrol and an unwrapped ore extractor. Take a look!

I think CEL-shading is the only way to go if you want to give the full "RA" experience.

Unfortunatly the Renegade engine does not really support Cell Shading, so if we did texture the models that way the lighting would be fixed in a certain position, which would not look very good.

Im not so hot about the cel shading, but the renders do look pretty awesome. Like they came out of a high-budget anime film. But, I'll still play it :P Maybe my opinion'll change. Great work guys, keep it up.

So... AR is going to be using cel-shading instead of Renegade graphics?
...Or am I on crack?

This is just some trivia OWA cooked up, these will not be ingame graphics (although it's possible we might release cell shaded units as extras for fanmaps or something, or include them as Easter Eggs.... anything could happen ^^)
