Video 1 - Conquest mode
danpaul88 has been hard at work, polishing the new conquest scripts. This is opening not one, but two extra game modes for us apart from the classic C&C style (destroy eachother's base), Megawealth and Invasion!
In Megawealth, your objective will be capturing and holding Tech Oil Derricks, which produce conquest score to your team apart from giving you credits. It's not yet decided whether these types of maps will also appear without refineres and an ore miner for each team but currently that is the plan.
In Invasion mode, picture a city full of garrisonable buildings. There are a few main squares in the city, these are the conquest zones that you have to "capture" (stand there and hold). E.g. Soviets invade an american city and the Allies have to try to defend it by holding the squares.
Check out the scripts in action below!
Video 2 - Beta 2 testing session
Next up is another video. We've recently had a huge internal testing session, and Verti60 recorded it all for your enjoyment. Cheers mate!
DawnBlaze has decided to build this massive french style defense structure, so here's a WIP of it!
Although the Grand Cannon won't be available in the first release, it will be included shortly after with all the other country specific units and abilites shipping with RC1 Patch1.
You thought that much content has been enough already? Not so fast!
FelipeCZ's been composing lots of music for AR recently. They fit the game quite well and excellent to listen to during play.
So here's another track for showoff!

We'd like to end this month's update with a question to the fans:
Would you guys want us to hold a live Q&A session on IRC every month?
