Command & Conquer 4 will require you to be constantly connected to the internet.The reasoning behind it is down to the “player progression,”C&C community manager EA_Apoc.”C&C4 is not an MMO in the sense of World of Warcraft,” Apoc explains, “but conceptually it has similar principles for being online all the time. While some may be taken aback by this, we’ve been testing this feature internally with all of our world-wide markets. We wanted to make sure it wouldn’t take away any significant market or territory from playing the game.”Apoc adds that it’s not going to make the single player laggy. “You could be on age-old dial-up, and have the same single-player experience as everyone else. Online all the time won’t cause lag for single-player. We’ve also heavily worked on the online infrastructure such that people with slower connections will not lag other players with faster connections in Multiplayer.”So it’s online only, but as long as you have any internet connection, you’ll be fine. We can still see problems with this, though, and we doubt we’re the only ones.
