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 Battlefield Update

Hello, everyone! It's time for another dev update, and is there much to cover! So much so, that we can't fit everything into one update. Progress has steamed ahead and each testing session has become more interesting than the last! With so much content being divided into equal parts, expect several updates as we catch up on our reveals!

Today's update: Bots, Attack Dogs, and Spies!

Bots in C&C Mode

A wonderful feature we are proud to introduce into AR, bots now populate the maps and fight the good fight!

Bots Loading Up

Upon the start of each match, AI offensive modules and AI defensive modules are loaded in. Speaking generally, bots that attack and defend join the battle, meaning that players can play the game against the AI! Offensive bots immediately move out to engage and attack the enemy forces. Defensive bots, on the other hand, will remain at base to protect against trespassers.

The offensive bots forces comprises your team's ground arsenal, from infantry to tanks. Infantry AI will support friendly tanks and engage enemy infantry. Additionally, they will infiltrate enemy buildings, and will even attack weakpoints within the enemy base! If the unit is armed with C4, they will stick it onto major weakpoints. A little C4 knocking at your door!
Tank AI will prioritise enemy armour first before engaging enemy infantry. If properly supported by friendlies, they may even bring down a base defense or two, and then move on to shoot base buildings!

Offensive AI Ingame

The defensive bots forces comprises of basic infantry and engineers. Infantry will be stationed around the base and inside friendly buildings to ward off enemy advances, as well as chasing and killing enemy units that enter the buildings themselves. Engineers will be positioned at Repair Nodes to repair any damages caused to the base, but will leave the building they spawned at to run to other buildings when repair duty or C4 disarming tasks call. Naturally when attacking the enemy base, it would be viable to send soldiers inside to wipe out the repairing personnel.

Bots are removed/added to the game dynamically depending on the playercount (if enough players are ingame, all the bots are gone). This ensures the game is always full of action, even if there are only a few players online.

A lot of time has been spent on this new feature by moonsense715 that makes bots able to play classic C&C mode. In short, the AI learned how to destroy and repair bases. moonsense715 will continue working on improving both the offline and online gaming experience in AR by making bots smarter.

Soviet Paradrop

Attack Dogs

Attack Dogs have made it ingame, and are purchasable from the Barracks. Both teams have their respective canine companions; the Soviets with the Siberian Husky and the Allies with the German Shepherd. An effective anti-infantry unit, Attack Dogs introduce a new element to close-quarters combat. Consider biting enemy infantry while inside a building!

Allied Spy

Tactical Espionage Action.

Always with an affinity for subterfuge, the Allies again employ the use of Spies in the Third World War against the Soviet Union. Armed with his quick wits, a silenced Walther PPK, and a Disguise Kit, the Spy seeks to obtain intelligence and sow confusion among the enemy forces.

Walther PPK

The Allied Spy's sidearm, the Walther PPK. Model by Romanov.

With spotting scope in hand, a Spy may find an enemy infantry (or a driver of an enemy vehicle) to disguise as from a relatively safe distance. Once disguised, the Spy may then bypass enemy base defenses without worry. Moments later, the Soviet base finds itself without power! Fancy that!

Secondly, with the same disguise ability, he can act as a decoy unit by targeting teammates. Imagine the soviets seeing 2 Tanyas approaching their base, but they don't know which one is the real threat!

For base infiltration, the Spy has a slowly respawning hacking device at his disposal. This ensures that the Spy cannot sprint from building to building shutting everything down. The mindful Spy will keep note of the cooldown timer of the hacking device, as well as soviet movements within their base while determining which building to infiltrate next.

A few of our testers have admitted to having a crappy video card, and they still can enjoy playing Apocalypse Rising. You should definitely be fine to play.

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.
