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).

RA2:AR April Update!

News 3 comments


Hello and welcome everyone to the latest Apocalypse Rising update!

New Map: RA2 Frostbite Isle

To begin this update, welcome our newest team member, TotallySnappy! Showing great promise and quite keen to get stuck in, Snappy has provided the game a new map which we hope to include in-game fairly soon!


As you can see, it is based off the classic tight-map design of C&C Renegade, with one or two added paths to prevent the game from becoming a bit of a meat-grinder. Think C&C_Under, but better!

Feel free to let us know what you think of this, and again welcome TotallySnappy!

Mirage Tank

The Mirage Tank is a high tier Allied vehicle that disguises itself into a tree when it's not moving or shooting. Armed with a Heatwave cannon, it does incredible damage against infantry and vehicles. The Mirage Tank is not made for base assault and is therefore ineffective at attacking structures. Ambushing unsuspecting Soviet attack groups is where the Mirage Tank truly shines.

Is that convoy of Apocalypse Tanks protecting some V3's? No problem, just uncloak once they drive by and thwart their assault in one decisive move!



Used carefully, this unit can provide a devastating sneak attack!

This great model and texture done by none other than Romanov! Look out for it in-game soon!


Tesla Tank

Available to Russia only (and sometimes found in crates on the battlefield), the Soviet Tesla Tank is the pinnacle of portable Tesla technology. The Soviet Tesla Tank is a large ground vehicle that fires a Tesla charge instead of a ballistic weapon. This charge is effective against both units and structures.



Capacitor at full charge!

This great model and texture again by Romanov! Top notch work as usual!


One of the unique things about the Tesla Tank in Red Alert 2 was that it could fire over walls. However, due to the way that FPS games work, we're not going to be incorporating some sort of special firing mode that allows you to shoot over walls ala Red Alert 2. If you want to shoot over walls in your Tesla Tank, feel free to move to higher ground or shoot at the top of buildings that you can see.

Recruitment

The door is always open for new team members. Each new member speeds up Apocalypse Rising's release! If you would like to lend a hand and help out, let us know!

We seek the following:

  • 2 Artists for modelling and texturing civilian buildings and props.
  • 1 Artist for making nature assets (trees, bushes, etc.)
  • 1 Character Artist
  • 1 Texture/Photoshop user (optionally unwrapper) to help in texturing building interior objects

Should you wish to contribute, don't hesitate to apply! Whether you have the skills or not, it's in the willingness to learn and apply your knowledge!

If you would like to help out in areas not listed, applications for those positions are just as welcome.

To apply, feel free to send a message to any member of the W3D Hub team here or visit our forums and send a Private Message to either One Winged Angel or moonsense715. Or even post below if you're interested and we can have a chat.

End

Thanks for reading, and we hope to see you next time as we reveal more developments and other cool stuff the team has been working on!

Most of these models suprisingly are under 4000 polys. The exceptions aresome of the buildings and the dreddy.

"however, Ren2 was infact the inbetween RA2 - TS era, closer to RA2"

.. you mean TD right ?

and yeah.. they did build ren2 on the ren engine.. but they modded it to the extend it was supposed to have been in the first place.. unfortunately i doubt anyone can get a hold of the modified version thereby allowing for the improved shadows, textures and polygon limits.. oh yeah and effects :p

I'm getting to work now on the map i intend to use as a first test around the team for the things we have ingame so far, this'll be released only around the people who have internal access on our forums.

All those were units cut out of the origonal RA2, they acctually have VXL/SHP files inside the mix files if you care to take a look, however, Ren2 was infact the inbetween RA2 - TS era, closer to RA2, but still it was going to be built on the finished ren engine. As many people know ren was rushed and the engine isnt completed. I'm also sticking to a lower poly limit because everybody else does, it's just that i know alot of people in the community that still play ren havn't got very good computers, so i shall make sure all C&C fans can play it with the same specs needed for ren.

Final desciscion.

Probably after ra2. But staude has it right. If Ren2 was supposed to be RA2 then where do the vulture helicopter, the scavenger refinery and the light tank fit in? Btw have u set up a server online yet with 700k models yet? Has it crashed the game yet? =p Just joking. Although your point is very valid paradox.

actually it was supposed to be after ra2 or ra3 since it was about the soviet fall and the rise of nod which didnt exacly happen in ra2 :p
