This page lists news items posted at Command & Conquer Wiki.
As an overdue follow-up to our initial announcement, the Command & Conquer Wiki (EVA Database) is now officially open on Gamepedia. With the only active administrators (myself and Ssskoopa, here called SuperFeatherYoshi) moving to here, the Wikia version will no longer be managed and everyone is advised to use the one on Gamepedia. We've also been cleaning up some higher-tier articles in the meanwhile, such as Global Defense Initiative and Scrin, so we aim to become the definitive source on anything and everything Command & Conquer in the coming months.
Note that moderation here will be even more rigorous against fan fiction, which has damaged the reputation of the wiki in the past. We have already cropped many articles and there's still more to go. We will be posting in the new admin noticeboard in the coming days to help you help us in that endeavour.
And finally, in the name of the administration at the EVA Database, I would like to thank the Gamepedia/Curse staff for their immense help and…Read more >
Those of you who have followed the news around the Fallout Wikia you may have noticed that Wikia/Fandom has been doing network-wide changes which wiki admins do not have control over. From their talks with Wikia/Fandom staff, we can clearly see that the folks above are not really interested in wikis, which made them big and popular in the first place, and instead try to focus on forced video content and articles as "quaint" as this one. And we did not forget their forcing of auto-playing video content that can not be changed or removed, or backend updates silently breaking a useful template that was only fixed this year.
The active administration (Ssskoopa and myself) have decided to move over to Gamepedia, which is already home to The Vault the Fallout Wiki made the jump years ago), the Official Witcher Wiki, Wowpedia, and the up-to-date Overwatch Wiki, to name a few. Their business model puts wikis first and everything else second.
We will update this post once the move procedure end…Read more >
Command & Conquer: Rivals has been announced at EA Play today.Read more >
It's apparently the age of cancelled Command & Conquer titles these days. Thanks to Red2.net, we know of another such game - Command & Conquer (Mobile). Though barely, as all we have are a few concept images.Read more >
Tencent has announced Red Alert Online, a mobile game made in partnership with Electronic Arts. All lines are hot.Read more >
The French fansite C&C Saga revealed another cancelled Command & Conquer game today: Command & Conquer: Red Alert Alliances, which was in development by 1 July 2013 by Electronic Arts Phenomic. More details in the game's article!
EDIT: To give credit where it is due, Darth Tenebra was even faster and uploaded the images two days earlier, while I wasn't looking :)Read more >
Following a history of unlogged users' edits being more of rollback candidates than constructive additions, I have disabled unlogged edits on EVA Database. This will mean that unlogged users can still see pages, images and videos like they could before, but if they want to edit or create new pages and files, they are required to sign up first. Hopefully this will ease moderation to some extent.Read more >
Since this was apparently not stressed enough, we need to form standards for unit cameos.
For games made up to and before Yuri's Revenge, please use the images from the game files (*icon.shp/*uico.shp) - this content may vary on the game language, and all language versions are welcome (English is a priority). The so-called "textless" cameos from Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge are the own work of tomsons26 and the PreRA2 mod team and as such, we do not have permission to liberally use them wherever possible. Hence, those will be removed.
For Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath, there are already transparent PNG cameos available in the main unit article's descriptions. Cropped screenshots of the icons with the GUI backgrounds on are not considered icons and will be removed once all references to them are replaced with the proper assets. Please do not upload any more of these. They are redundant duplicates that look bad.
Removing the small edges in RA2/RA3 icons is more than welcome as long as the rest of th…Read more >
Greetings, wiki lovers.
It has come to our attention that many Tiberian Dawn articles have Renegade images and data. Although they are, by canon, concurrent, they are completely different and related to completely different games.
Some articles have the two completely merged (like so) or just have a picture or two to connect them (like so).
For this reason, I have started Project Separation to deal with this. Everything that is related to Renegade must be removed from Tiberian Dawn articles and placed in appropriate Renegade articles.
Hit me up if you need more information on this.
Thank you, SheldonistRead more >
As you may have heard so far, Command & Conquer (2013) has been officially cancelled. Victory Games staff has been fired and Command & Conquer has an uncertain future.
Since the NDA has been lifted some time ago, you are free to post all related material you can currently get to. The game's servers are still reported to be online, as the team released a patch on Monday before they got the message they were closed, so make the most of your time available for archiving.Read more >
GamesCom has come and gone, but has left a few goodies, including a trailer for campaign missions in Generals 2, pardon, Command & Conquer!Read more >
the news wheel has finally started to turn. With E3 coming very soon, we now have two generals' names - Charles "Mercury Red" Barrowsmith and our well-known Dr. Thrax, of which the former was a careless slip on Victory Games' side when the new website was about to launch. The third General is nicknamed Junkyard, but we are best to wait to see if this is his real name.
Keep an eye out for all new things to come in the official C&C Facebook and Twitter feeds, the E3 live footage and C&C fansites. Remember, if it isn't from one of the mentioned sources, you can consider it a fake.
Take care, SheldonistRead more >
The French magazine Canard PC has released an exclusive six-page special on Command & Conquer (2013), which you can find here and roughly translated here. It's official - the APA is an abbreviation for the Asian-Pacific Alliance, as many have guessed.
That's all for now. SheldonistRead more >
Mission article posters, prepare your keyboards! Command & Conquer F2P will have a singleplayer campaign after all! You can read the source here.Read more >
Generals 2 has been renamed to simply Command & Conquer after the official trailer has been released today at Gamescom. All the respective templates will be renamed accordingly soon. For now, however, see the trailer itself - http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/17117-new-command-conquer-trailer-at-gamescom/Read more >
Here's just a quick update: I've made all necessary categories and templates for Tiberium Alliances. This includes the GDI, Nod and Forgotten arsenal templates (some of them need proofreading) and the game icon (the tag is TA). Just remember NOT to set costs in the unitboxes, as I've already got an idea to sort the unit costs for all of their levels.

Tiberium Alliances is now in open beta! Since this OFFICIALLY means that the NDA has been lifted, I've enabled non-administrators to post in the related articles and categories. Be careful with the info, though.Read more >
Hey everyone! I'm Sheldonist and I'm the new secondary administrator here at EVA Database. In this blog, I'd like to recap the recent events in the C&C world.
First, as we all know, Command & Conquer: Generals 2 is the next major C&C game, scheduled for release in 2013. This was speculated in November already, as people skillful in searching the net found some information that would be confirmed a month later. Low-end computer users will unfortunately have to upgrade, as it will use the same Frostbite 2 engine as Battlefield 3. So far, only a few screenshots and a teaser trailer have been revealed at Spike TV Video Game Awards 2011. Two factions are known, the European Union and the GLA, while the third faction remains a mystery for now. DLCs have been announced, including factions, campaigns, units etc. The team at BioWare Victory has already been interviewed numerous times. You can see them all here.
Another C&C game that's in development is Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances, whic…Read more >
I've been datamining the Internets for the past few days and I return with UPDATES!
First, something that should've been done a while ago: the entire GDI Style Guide for Tiberium has been digitized and uploaded to the Wiki for your perusal.
Second, attendees of the Games Convention in Leipzig might recall him, here's Ralf Zillmann's Commander Simon Drake, a staple of the Tiberium Wars release party in Cologne and the two Games Conventions in Leipzig.
Last, and probably least, data mining uncovered a ten year old iteration of something called the C&C Bible, penned by John Scott Lewinski. While the bits of information relating to characters appearing in Tiberian Sun sound quite credible and can be assumed to come from design documents, the Scrin background provided is too incredible to be anything else than the writer's own creativity and shouldn't be taken as any kind of source material.
EDIT: Not last. In the last minutes, I've uncovered the Red Alert 1 cutscene cript for the Soviets. See…Read more >
As Kotaku reports, a new official C&C website has been briefly made available on the Internet, but taken offline soon after. According to the website, the new C&C title will be developed by Jon Van Caneghem's Victory Games. An interview on the website with Caneghem stated that:
Stay tuned for more news! And thanks to Ausir for his vigilance!Read more >
It's a slow time for Command & Conquer news, so I've done some digging on Tiberium. Here's the result:
Note: The fugly Xbox 360 strip at the top has been removed for your viewing pleasure.
These are all potential covers for Tiberium, as created by Blind graphic design company. Enjoy!
Since we had a mandatory update to Oasis, the navigation of the site has been revamped. Please comment if you run into any problems you can't fix with a page edit or if pages are unreachable.
On a brighter note, the Wiki now contains over 50 images more, scrounged up from pages and portfolios of artists who worked on various aspects of Command & Conquer games (most of them are from Tiberium Wars, although a priceless beta harvester scan was kindly provided to the community by dauntless trooper Nyerguds).
New images are added daily, so this is not the end, far from it!Read more >
A few days ago, Aaron Apoc Kaufman, the C&C Community Manager for the past six and a half years, has published his decision to leave the employ of Electronic Arts and transfer his post over to Rick Goodman.
It's been a pleasure, Apoc.Read more >
