Announced today, Dying Breed from Sarnayer that blends together the classic style and gameplay in the original Command & Conquer but with Zombies is now being published by MicroProse. Seems quite fitting to have a name like MicroProse attached to it.

Taking you back to the glory days of the classic RTS experience with a 90s electro-metal soundtrack and even those brilliantly silly FMV live-action cut-scenes. Set in a post-apocalyptic world it has the usual base-building and resource gathering but the action also looks great.

It will have Native Linux support at release. Yeah, I'm excited for this one. I grew up on C&C, Red Alert and the likes so this one really speaks to me. Can't wait to see more of it.

You can follow it on Steam. There also for now still some old demos on itch.io.

Oh wow, didn't know MicroProse still existed

Wishlisted instantly. I reckon the first seconds of the trailer had me thinking someone just made a really cool mod for the original C&C. Then I saw more footage and, although it looks really really like a mod, it has new scenarios and other stuff that make it look like a different game. Really interested in this one, I still play at least once a year both C&C and Red Alert (got the remastered and play awesome on steam deck) so this one will definitely fit in my library.

Because it didn't. It was closed down in 2000 and revived in 2019.

A politically correct way to kill humans?
Just guessing.

I wish they could wrestle the Formula One licence away from EA and reunite Geoff Crammond and Formula One...... After all these years the MicroProse published Geoff Crammonds Grand Prix games are still the best Formula One games ever.......

Oh sorry........ Yeah...... Dying Breed...... That looks really cool...... Added it to my wishlist.......
