F2P Command & Conquer Beta Early Next Year

A recent post to the Command & Conquer Blog updates us on progress on the upcoming free-to-play Command & Conquer game (thanks Ant). This includes an explanation of why they are not actually hyping this more, saying: "We’ve decided to actually let the game speak for itself, instead of starting the typical marketing noise you normally would expect. That being said, it might be a few more months before we reveal more information – we don’t just want to tell you about the game, we want to show you." It also outlines plans for an extended beta test beginning next year:
So looking at where we are right now with our game and the ongoing service that comes with Free 2 Play games actually makes me believe that this game can become a great Command & Conquer. And we will be working together with you – The Fans - to make it better and better. As planned right now, the Beta will start in the first half of 2013, and will be the longest running beta phase in franchise history.

F2P games taught me a valuable lesson - they are like web interfaces and the cloud. You don't really own them, and they're prone to horrible decisions being patched in on random basis.

If you want an Email client, get a local one, like Thunderbird or Outlook. If you want to be at the mercy of the ever-changing cloud, use Gmail and Hotmail via the web.

Same goes for games. Either you own them, or not. And with F2P, you don't own SHIT.

This message was brought to you by a disgruntled Tribes: Ascend player.

The worst part about all of this, is that it looks like there are enough dumb fucks on the internet to feed these F2P games forever fucking up PC gaming.

When even Team fortress goes F2P that is seriously fucked up. Minerwars 2081, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2. Online only and F2P. Shit sucks.
