BattleCast Primetime Episode 1 – C&C3 Expansion Pack Announced

August 15, 2007

Episode 1 of BattleCast Primetime is out and it’s far more professional than I expected and full of great tidbits.

Well worth the download or online view for any CNC fan. I’ll add some screenshots to this post later today.

View Episode 1

There are 2 options

1) full definition .wmv downloads

OR

2) streaming flash (recommended)

I’ll let the online TV stream do the talking. Make sure you leave some comments on what you think of the expansion and maybe even some ideas on what the new units are (see screenshots below)

P.S. You’ll learn about the expansion pack for C&C3 and the NEW radial interface that it will feature. The expansion pack is coming in early 2008! The news I really wanted to hear 😀
