Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight was not well received by critics and fans, something that new developer Victory Games is well aware of as it creates a new Command & Conquer. A new developer diary video explains how the team is trying to get back to what made the series great to begin with.
"The first thing we said was we need to wash the stain of C&C 4 away," lead designer Samuel Bass said, "and to do that you really need to get back to your roots."
Part one of the Beyond the Battle video series talks about the generals and units, as well as the importance of fan feedback in the design. "Godfather of RTS" Louis Castle, co-founder of the old Westwood Studios that built the first Command & Conquer, also makes an appearance, discussing the core concepts of the original, which were "building a base, defending that base and building an assault army that you could go attack the other base."
