Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour features a new Generals Challenge mode which allows players to control any of the unique armies of nine distinctive Generals in head-to-head competition against computer-controlled Generals. Each General has a unique strength and is equipped with a special army. For instance, GLA commander Dr. Thrax enters battle with a deadly toxin arsenal, the US General Townes specializes in advanced laser warfare, and Chinese General Tsing Shi Tao has a power-packed nuclear army. It will be the player's role to choose their General and strategies wisely to become the ultimate modern warfare General.
In three new single player campaigns players will continue to take charge of three different armies: the Global Liberation Army (GLA), China, or the USA. Players may be called to destroy the U.S. fleet in the Mediterranean, root out a splinter cell in Cairo, infiltrate a U.S. intelligence building, or send in special operatives to capture weapons of mass destruction. With new weapons such as the US Spectre Gunship, GLA combat motorcycles, and Chinese Helix helicopters, players will select from a surplus of new high-tech weaponry and an assortment of new units and structures in their quest for global domination.
