Rise of the Reds – or ROTR for short – improves upon the C&C Generals formula while also adding its own distinct elements to it. Most notably, the mod adds two completely new factions, the tank-heavy Russian Federation and the defence-oriented European Continental Alliance. In addition, the three original factions China, USA and GLA have been greatly expanded and redesigned in a variety of ways, with several new units, buildings, powers and abilities to explore and combine in your in-game tactics. ROTR also changes some of the game mechanics in order to create a unique and fresh experience. Examples include a technology progression system based around three tiers, a more fleshed out counter system between air and anti-air units as well as an additional emphasis on specialised scouting and detection units which serve to make stealth tactics a more viable option than they were in the original game. Beyond the gameplay aspect, the mod also brings many cosmetical updates, spectacular special effects and custom sounds and voice overs to the table.

The most recent version 1.85 was released in April 2015. Aside from adding many new units, special powers and visual overhauls for all five factions, the release was tied to the premiere of SWR.net, our very own online multiplayer service which is organically integrated in the ROTR executable and allows you to enjoy exciting multiplayer battles with players around the world via a virtual network.

The next major release version 2.0 will bring generals back into the game, allowing you to choose between 15 all-new sub-factions (3 per faction) that further capitalise on the tactical themes of their parent factions. Unlike Zero Hour where generals were chosen during the match setup,ROTR's sub-factions will be chosen in-game at the very start of the battle, as it was originally intended in the unreleased beta version of Generals. Thus, vanilla factions in the original Zero Hour sense will no longer be present in the 2.0 version. Additional features are currently planned to include two story-driven campaigns and a new game mode akin to Zero Hour's iconic Generals Challenge.

And this weeks update we will be showcasing you the new ECA Munitions Bunker:





ECA forces had previously relied on ad hoc fortified bunkers to store ammunition on defensive lines, yet it soon became apparent that a more effective solution was needed. A new reinforced concrete bunker design was rolled out on the European front, serving as both a firing position for up to three ECA troops as well as a more resilient forward ammunition depot. The Munitions Bunker is also capable of deploying Munitions Tracks to resupply defensive divisions closer to the front. Due to its usual presence in hostile territory as well as the volatile materials being stored within, the Munitions Bunker can lock itself down to improve the bunker's resistance to enemy fire. It should be noted that doing so prevents the doors from being opened to supply defenses with ammunition, and disallows access to the garage. The commander of the bunker is authorized to call in mine artillery strikes around the bunker; these are specially designed to fire Mole Mines at long ranges, equipped with parachutes allowing them to deploy safely without damage. Due to the fact that the bunker stores a large amount of explosive materials however, the commander is not authorized to call a "Danger Close" strike in-case of nearby incursion. In the worst case scenario of a forward position being completely overrun however, the staff of the bunker can easily rig the munitions stockpile to detonate in order to prevent capture of materiel.

And a friendly reminder that this upcoming Sunday, we will be doing another live stream of the newly released public build.
The stream will as usually be hosted by Hecthor Doomhammer on his channel: Twitch.tv

Hold on, the game you showed is developed by a company called Tencent. Not EA. So I guess this is just a fan made thing that will have barely anything to do with the original series

It is not developed by EA indeed. But it is officially licensed by them. There have already been the official presentation in Beijing, where Tencent Games have officially stated they are developing it in cooperation with EA and by their license. The game's "plot" will take place right after Yuri's Revenge's events, and game's design will be a combination of SLG (Clash of Clans and its numerous clones) and RTS.

When you thought that nothing can be worse than C&C4;, you got RA2-based clash-of-clans's clone...

C&C we deserved.

"Tencent Games have officially stated they are developing it in cooperation with EA and by their license."
Can you give me the source of this info ? I can't find any. Wherever I look, I only find that Tencent worked with EA in the past, but no partnership has officially been announced for this particular game. Yet.

Don't know why there is no info in non-Russian game-journals, but a lot of ours state that, refering to the GMGC Beijing conference in the beginning of april 2018th and Tencent's presentation. Also, you can find some info (starngely, more than on the official Tencent site) on the game's official page (if you know Chinese language or trust in Google translator).

Ruining the franchise and finally burying it was not enough - better sell its corpse to the Chinese mobile app developer. Way to go, EA! Can't wait to see a new C&C renegade with another battle-royal mode with lootboxes.

Seriosly, i don't have any illusions about the future of the official title: it is done, classical C&C RTS has no future, not in EA's hands at least.
But why, goddamn why can't they already stop and let it finally rest?

Oh, wait. Money, right? Chinese C&C RA fanbase is pretty decent, which means they can try to squeeze some money from it using player's nostalgia about those old days of RA2.

Maybe that game will do well, maybe it will find its fans. But in general, it is another spit in the C&C fanbase's face: first was TibTwilight, second was a try to monetise Generals 2, and this is the third - making a mobile app on a resting body of the great game franchise. Even buried, it still can't rest in peace.

Hello, this is for the mod devs. So I am a dev myself and I was wondering if you could help think of ideas for a game. We are mostly looking about games like Zero Hour and those types.
