Victory Games showed up to Gamescom with some new footage from Command and Conquer, and revealed story-based missions would return with the latest entry.

Though the trailer is light on gameplay, Command and Conquer is still in alpha, it's good to get an update on the status of the series. According to the brief description of the plot, C&C will take place ten years in the future, and features a (surprise) battle for world dominance.

The year is 2023, and the world once again teeters on the brink of war. The China dominated Asia-Pacific Alliance, having sat comfortably as the world's foremost geopolitical power for nearly a decade, finds itself challenged on all fronts. The upstart European Union and a newly reconstituted Global Liberation Army threaten the newfound balance of power.

There's still no release date in sight, but Command and Conquer is shaping up to be a nice return for the franchise. Hopefully Victory can deliver.
