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!

Why don't you guys update? Why be so secretive? I've seen videos. A lot more finished models there than seen in any pictures.

A question: Your new map shows us a moment of a Soviet Invasion, does it mean that all the levels from the original RA2 campaign including Chronosphere and Kremlin assault will be present?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Not all of the levels will be present, but we will try our best to recreate the ones that stand out. For example, I'd like to include the level with the Psychic Amplifier at some point.

Thankyou great and mighty Soviet Premier! We hope that the BIG RUSSIAN MISSILES in our game will make any Allied coward duck and cover! We will try our best to keep providing a steady flow of sneaky devices without using a Chronosphere to invade Moscow.

Rest assured comrade, we are the right team for the job! (And at least I have job!)

I found a way to solve the problem with three factions.

I figured that would be the ultimate solution. Can't have 3 faction per map, but can have different versions of maps with the 3 sides taking turns in 1v1. Interesting idea, but there's more to it than that. Yuri as a faction would be very hard to balance (it was already horrendously imbalanced in YR). Not to mention certain technologies and logics that just wouldn't work, like mind control. The Soviets can do without mind control. Yuri cannot.

Radar-tech Yuri would certainly be possible. Pretty much everything before the Masterminds and Psychic Towers. (Multiple mind control would be a pain in the arse to implement!)

It looks like a good MOD
does this require RA2 or Renegade or both?

It's standalone, but not released yet. All the BHP Renegade mods are accessed through a single, universal launcher.

Meyerm is correct! This game requires no additional games to run. It's a heavily modified standalone build of Renegade's w3d engine.
