BioWare's much-teased new game is, as rumours have suggested, a new Command & Conquer instalment, Generals 2.
In development at new studio BioWare Victory and due on PC in 2013, the Frostbite 2-powered RTS puts players in charge of three unique factions in a near-future conflict that sees military leaders running the world.
"World leaders are mere seconds away from signing a peace treaty and bringing an end to a global war when a devastating terrorist attack rips through the conference, killing everyone in attendance, leaving only the world's military superpowers in control," the official EA blurb reads.
"It's up to you to assume their roles, take command of their forces and conquer global terrorism once and for all. Players will take control of three unique factions in a thrilling single-player campaign, and with friends online in cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes."
"We're bringing BioWare's vision for emotionally engaging gameplay and great attention to quality to the strategy genre and the Command & Conquer franchise," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, General Manager of EA's BioWare label.
"I am excited to welcome BioWare Victory to our label. They are a great addition and the team is working hard to make sure Generals 2 truly immerses and engages players into this intense, gritty, modern war experience."
Exec producer Jon Van Caneghem added: "For the last eight years, Command & Conquer fans have been begging for a return to the Generals universe. With Generals 2, we are bringing the Command & Conquer franchise back to its roots, blending strategic gameplay with fast-paced action -- all set in visually stunning theaters of war powered by Frostbite 2."
