Posted by on

The drumbeat of progress continues at C&C 3: The Forgotten, and we're proud to announce that, in addition to the full campaign, we're also going to be including some custom-made skirmish maps. These maps give us the freedom to explore some neat gameplay elements while not being as strictly tied down to the story. They'll be a great place to practice before trying some of our more challenging misssions, or to just explore the full Forgotten tech tree. Today, we'll showcase three of them: GDI Space Command, Unfriendly Skies, and Alpine Valleys, all created by our staff member Predatore.

For those looking for a change of base from the desolate settings of the mod's Red Zones, look no further. GDI Space Command showcases the hub of GDI's extraplanetary operations, a site of tremendous strategical importance. Intricate levels of detail will make you appreciate the surroundings, but don't take your eyes off the battle for too long in this combat-heavy map.

Similar to some of the darkest missions from the campaign, Unfriendly Skies takes place in a battlefield where Mother Nature herself is also an obstacle. Devastating and unpredictable Ion Storms sweep the terrain, confronting all involved and demonstrating that in this war, even the quietest moments can quickly turn deadly.

For those who like long battles, Alpine Valleys is an excellent choice. The map features a realistic day-night cycle, as well as ample opportunities for explosive combat between all four factions.

You can see more screenshots from these maps and the rest of the mod on our media page or moddb gallery.

One other bit of news: the current release date we are aiming for is sometime in mid-September. We've made a great deal of progress with the mod, and I can say we're probably well over 90% done, but it's this last push that will make this mod all it can be, and we're going to give it everything we've got. Thanks for your patience, and we hope it's worth the wait. If you think you can help us get there faster, fill out a beta tester application.
