C&C Reloaded 2.2.0 has been released!
Subject description: Brotherhood, Unity, and Yuri is life!
Last month, December 17th, FS-21 released C&C: Reloaded 2.2.0, the latest version of the classic modification for Yuri's Revenge that adds GDI and Nod to the battlefield. Since the last time we've posted news about a release of this mod, a lot has happened. Most of the progress is related to the use of the newest versions of Ares and Phobos. There are also new game options, new maps, new secret units for the Tech Lab such as Nod Reckoner, Nod Redeemer, Mobile EM-Pulse, and Allied Guardian Tank. You can also sell docked aircraft from Helipads, save games and there are countless bug fixes and improvements on the gameplay. Here's the changelog of the newest versions of the mod:
