C&C Final War, for Yuri's Revenge, has received updated Economy Structures for the Empire faction, a new Legion Barracks, as well as a plethora of new visual enhancements. Legion vehicles will also make use of a new Scrap Feature, not unlike the GLA in C&C Generals, which serves to demonstrate a unit's veterancy status. Additionally, the mod has reached beta status and is being actively tested. Tiberian Sun WarZone continues to receive many new and original visual updates, especially for animations. There are also better explosion animations for Tiberium, and new animations for GDI and Nod units. The upcoming update will include the ability to use TS-DDRAW, so it can run properly on newer PCs, as well as rescaled infantry, in the options menu.

Robot Storm development has seemingly resumed if these 2 new screenshots are anything to go by. That's it for late April, May and early June.
  2. For those interested in C&C Rivals' development, since last year, there have been several new updates to the game. The game interface has been updated. Competitive ladder seasons have been introduced to the game. A brand new competitive event, called CABAL's War Games, has been released. It involves choosing from a limited pool of units to construct a deck and defeat other players over the course of a few matches. A Cloning Chamber feature has been added to help players clone cards of a chosen type after 30 battles. Daily Bonus and boosts have been added. One can also buy these. Vanity Skins have been added to the game, including "Explojis", Commander Emotes and Unit Skins. Several new units heave been released this year for the game: The Laser Drone (Nod), Mohawk Gunship (GDI), Cyberwheel (Nod), Centurion (Nod), Orca Bomber (GDI), Grenadier (GDI), Mutant Marauder (Nod), Slingshot (GDI), Fanatic (Nod) and Shatterer (GDI). That's all for the first half of 2019.

    Rivals isn't that bad

    Ok, that gave me a good smirk. I get that a lot of regular C&C players don't really like Rivals. I reckon it has its faults (microtransactions making players get stuck in a league unless they pay more money to level up their stuff quickly, or simply grind a really really really long time) and that I would rather have picked a PC C&C game over Rivals any time...But sometimes I feel the hate is way too over-the-top. It is still a real game, it's just that unless you're at the top...It feels very simplistic for a strategy game (and maybe a bit boring to some).
  6. Ever since its official release, some news updates have hit C&C rivals. To celebrate the worldwide launch, C&C Rivals developers are holding a launch celebration live stream today on January 12th, 2019 at 7PM PST (10PM EST). This will include the reveal of upcoming new units, a brand-new yet-to-be unveiled game feature, as well as 2 mini-tournaments: one featuring C&C fans against mobile gaming YouTubers and another one featuring the top Rivals players from each region across the globe, culminating with in-game prizes for all players across the winning player's region. A brand new Spectator Mode, as well as Custom Games and Custom Game Lobbies have been announced and will soon be added into the game. This effectively allows players to play against their friends and organize tournaments. This also includes new advanced replays features. 2 new units have been released this past December: The MG Squad (GDI) and Avatar (Nod). That's all for now.

    Jim Vessella's Update on C&C Remasters

    I would have to guess probably, but...NDA. So I doubt he can say anything.
  10. It's not much. But keep in mind this is a small-ish game, and it's on mobile as well, so they have to keep the filesize reasonable. Thanks for the YouTube link, just added it to the post

  12. As the first voting phase for ModDB's Mod of the Year is approaching its end, here's most of the recent mod updates we've had from the community: The Second Tiberium War standalone TS mod will receive campaign missions, with the first GDI one having already been shown. It will also have a full Navy for both GDI and Nod, as well as improved urban and rural and props and tiles, including docks. GDI will also receive a Command Center structure. World Axletree, a YR mod, has a new GIF of a new support power in action, as well as new buildings. Combined Arms' developer has shown new Soviet units and changes, including the new Frogfoot. Red Alert History's next release will feature another set of new units and buildings that have been revealed recently, mostly all of them from RA2: The Allied Refinery & Ore Truck, The Soviet Refinery, The Soviet War Miner, The Soviet V3 Launcher, The Allied Prism Tank, The Soviet Tesla Tank, The Allied Grand Cannon and finally, the Soviet War Factory. Tiberian Sun Rising has released a new article showcasing Mutated Tiberium wildlife in the C&C3 engine, as well as Drop Pods and The Fist of Nod. C&C Generals: Frontlines' version 0.3 has been released. It notably includes a new unit for General Leang, the Skunk AFV. You can download it here. Mental Omega's Foehn faction will receive a new unit: The Orcinus. CnC Final War's version 1.0b is now live, which includes many new features, such as updated Empire Buildings, a robotic miner, new buildings for the Legion faction and much more. You can read the full developer blog here, which details all the changes. YR Red Resurrection patch 2.2.10 is now available, bringing with it some changes to the European faction as well as teasing future campaign missions. You can download the patch here and read the 2.2.10 release blog update here. Finally, you can read a retrospective blog post from OmegaBolt, detailing how the mod has evolved over the past 8 years and how it will evolve from here on, as well. One Vision has just released new details in a short blog post about its upcoming 0.92 update, which features mostly updates to some subfactions' unit upgrades, as well as showing recharge times for support powers. Tiberium Essence: In a surprise update that came seemingly out of nowhere, Carnius has just revealed yesterday that he will release the 2.0 Alpha version of Tiberium Essence sometime before Christmas Day, an update which will include The Forgotten as a new, fully-playable faction.
  13. Check this out, Tchutch from CNCSaga made this really cool-looking hybrid C&C/RA Remastered box art: Amazing stuff!
  14. Hey everyone, as some of you might remember, I made a poll a little over a month ago, asking about what you'd like to see in a C&C Remaster.
