The Future Ahead

2.0 doesn't end with this release, pending feedback and new ideas I'll release patches as we go along - balance patches will definitely come first.

As we eventually head over to 3.0, here's what to expect:

  1. Single player campaign with 2-3 missions
  2. Generals style single player challenge maps
  3. At least 2 new sides as I already have ideas set, one for Yuri and one for the Allies:
    1. The British specialize in Chrono and Cryo technology. The sniper makes a "cool" return ;)
    2. The Levant specialize in Toxin weapons. How some of the Middle East joined Yuri will be explained in the campaign
  4. Further art improvements: new unit models, sidebar image remakes/touch ups (2.1 maybe)
  5. New units, features and special abilities
  6. Full CnCNet Client fork dedicated to the mod (currently uses YR instead of its own designation)

Thanks for tuning in to this wall of text and I'll leave you with the 3.0 ice death anim & sound for cryo weapons; PS ignore the railgun.. it was just a test dummy ;)


Enjoy the release!

Cheers

Heavily inspired yes, and I thought about it but would be too much to implement into the story, I will do Tiberium world related challenge maps though! :)

Anyways, idk if Iraq will remains if they introduce a new sub faction for Yuri called Levant which specializes in toxic weapons as well as based on a GLA esque faction since both are similar.

And sadly, there's no infiltrator unit for Yuri as well.

Iraq will stay! They use nuke/rad weapons, the Levant will use toxins/poison like the Toxin Templar unit Yuri has :P The Templar was originally for the Levant, I just gave it to all Yuri factions to keep it balanced
