Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising, brings Westwood Studios' popular real time strategy game, C&C: Red Alert 2 into the FPS pespective, using the w3d engine. You will be able to experience, first hand, what it feels like to fill the boots of an Allied GI battling the communist might of the Soviet Union, or a Soviet Conscript vowing to take back what was lost to the Allies during the first great war. Classic units return such as the versatile Allied IFV to the mighty Soviet Apocalypse Assault Tank to the gargantuan Allied Aircraft Carrier to the mad Giant Squids. This game features all of the units and structures for the Allied and Soviet sides from both RA2 and the Yuri's Revenge Expansion. The Apocalypse is Rising Commander. Are you prepared for it? (Credit goes to everyone who has donated and contributed to this mod. We shall not let you down).

Apocalypse Rising June Update


Hi everyone, welcome to the latest Apocalypse Rising development update! This month we have a big surprise for you in form of Boris; the Soviet's Hero unit!

"Let the games begin!"

Boris

Field commander, elite commando, and Hero of the Soviet Union, Boris is a formidable force on the battlefield. Armed with his unique and specially modified AKM, Boris mows down enemy infantry with ease. At his highest veterancy status, he can even hold his own against anti-infantry and light vehicles. There is nothing that can stop Boris. Well, except for water. Unlike his Allied counterpart, Tanya, Boris cannot swim. Intelligence reports cannot indicate whether it is a simple refusal to swim or if he never learned how.

With his extensive training and battlefield experience, Boris is a soldier without fear. In every mission, Boris will see to it that there is nothing less than victory for Mother Russia.

"Russia's fate is with me."

MiG Aircraft

After the conclusion of the Second World War and the Allies as the victors, there were dark times for the Soviet War Machine. The Soviet Airforce, once a proud and strong component of the Soviet military, was reduced to scrap metal and "civilian applications". The MiGs and Yaks that had survived the war nonetheless found themselves dismantled, their materials used to rebuild the broken Russian economy.

For the purpose of self-preservation and self-defense, the Allied Forces agreed to a treaty that allowed the Soviets to retain a small contingent MiG fighters. It was this agreement that saved the remaining MiGs from complete and total destruction. Between the years of the Second World War and the later Third World War, these MiGs have found themselves collecting dust and had been practically forgotten about. The MiG fighters would not see service again until the arrival of Boris.

Boris' Laser Pointer

To destroy enemy buildings, Boris has been granted two things; access to MiGs and a laser pointer. Using the laser, Boris can point to and designate targets, marking them for destruction. Once a target has been confirmed, MiGs will fly in to do the job. Under Boris' command, the long-forgotten MiGs will see to key strategic strikes on the battlefield and proudly serve the Soviet Union once again.

Boris' Laser Pointer

Allied commando Tanya relies on C4 for building destruction, which requires entering the target building. Boris, however, can accomplish this without having to infiltrate the enemy building and simply rely on the MiGs. The laser pointer itself has considerable range, which grants the advantage to call in these airstrikes from a relatively safe distance, as pictured below.

Airstrike Confirmed

To see it in action, take a look at this video! Currently, the airstrike cinematic is a temporary animation and will see improvement in later development.

Man, I've been following this mod since 2007. Just visited for the first time in years and it makes me happy to see that it's had a lot of development since then. Good luck on getting it out guys. Looks great!

We have a roadmap, but don't want to announce any dates just yet in case we need to tweak things... final balance testing could take a few passes for instance.

We'll have bots. We're actually developing some new AI scripts to help make the offline mode more fun to play.
