Though Electronic Arts has yet to confirm the latest instalment in its Command & Conquer series, details from CNC General's World suggests that it's in the making and that it may feature "rpg-like" progression.

The details have come from an official EA online survey, which asks a few probing questions about gamer's experience of the Command & Conquer series to date. This has led to speculation that the franchise will be taking a new direction for the next installment.

These are the rumours that have currently come to light:

Play in the first RTS game with MMORPG like player progression in which you are rewarded every time you play. Every unit you kill in single player, multiplayer, or skirmish gives you experience points that allows you to level up your abilities and unlock new units, powers, and upgrades to your arsenal.

Introducing the first mobile base in RTS games: The Crawler. Focus on the action as the Crawler becomes your all-in-one base, which can be deployed and redeployed anywhere on the battlefield for even more strategic options

Play with all new, bigger and badder, units from GDI and Nod, including the Crawler, the first ever mobile base in RTS games

Dive into an all-new story written by a new scriptwriting team and told through trademark C&C cinematics taken to the next level with grittier, stylized FMVs in the vein of Minority Report.

Play in the first ever class-based C&C game – a new challenge for C&C and RTS players to master

Play the campaign on your own or tackle it with a friend, as co-operative campaigns return

Play in epic 5 vs 5 online multiplayer with all new objective-based game modes

They might make it good?

Oh.. they're just talking about RPG-like experience and upgrade. Not that DoW2 did that very well already or anything :p

And first mobile base in an RTS game?

I've my doubts too, Supreme Commander's Fatboy came close but wasn't capable of directly building naval and air units. Wonder how many “escort the base” missions there'll be.
I was thinking back to the Terran bases in Starcraft actually, though I did think about the fatboy as well.
