Zero Hour is the expansion pack to Command & Conquer: Generals that follows the return of the GLA to the world stage. The game features 15 new missions in 3 campaigns (five for each side), 9 new distinct generals (3 for each side) who fight alongside the core factions with their own specialties and units, the Generals Challenge mode where the player faces a new general in each mission and ends with the Chinese boss general Leang, new skirmish/multiplayer maps and a general rebalance. The campaign is presented by TV reporters (one for each campaign) in contrast to the short advisor briefings with satellite images from the base game.

Chinese trailer

The "China trailer" (Youtube), uses Chinese language :
  • Mainland China uses SIMPLIFIED CHINESE writing, while the trailer used TRADITIONAL Chinese writing (used in Taiwan)
  • The Chinese words that appeared just before "Nationalism" translates as "Communist Destructive Potential Cold War"
  • The Chinese words just before "Burning Desire" translates as "Communist Special Nuclear Forces"
  • The Chinese words just before "Strength in Numbers" and just before the end translates as "Communist Cold War World Positioning System"


Although Command & Conquer: Generals was developed outside Westwood (it was made in EA Pacific), Zero Hour was conceived after all the staff from EA Pacific and Westwood moved into EALA. Hence the FMV using real actors and the short time development.

German version

In the German version all humans were changed to cyborgs.


The first expansion pack to come on 2 discs.
