What is Command & Conquer: Generals?
Command & Conquer: Generals is the first 3D RTS in the Command & Conquer franchise. Using an engine called the SAGE engine, developed in house at Westwood Studios. One of the big changes in this game is that for the first time the traditional C&C interface has been changed. The side bar had been replaced in favour of a new command bar that is now located across the bottom of the screen. Another change for Generals is the developer. EA Pacific (formerly Westwood Pacific) is the team behind it, and is the same team that made Red Alert 2 and its subsequent expansion pack, Yuri’s Revenge.
The game that takes place in the not so distant future; it’s based on brand new storyline that pits three sides (the USA, China, and a terrorist group known as the Global Liberation Army) against each other. The game is split up into 21 missions, 7 for each of the three sides. The game will gives you the opportunity to play as any of the three sides right from the start, though the default order will be China, then the GLA, and finally the United States.
