    Trivia

    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"

    Development

    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.

    Media

    The first expansion pack to come on 2 discs.

    References to the game

    The game was parodied in an episode of "Die Redaktion" (The Editorial Team), a monthly comedy video produced by the German gaming magazine GameStar. It was published on the DVD of issue 11/2007.
