Free-to-play Command & Conquer closed beta this summer

Free-to-play PC RTS Command & Conquer will enter closed beta later this summer. EA today announced that developer Victory Games is taking applications on C&C's official website.

Check out the new trailer below to get a feel for this long-running series' latest reincarnation.

On top of three warring factions, players can unlock and lead with dozens of generals--it was originally C&C Generals 2, after all--each with leadership abilities suited to differing playstyles.

Command & Conquer will launch on PC later this year.
