Following the release of its First Decade game pack, Electronic Arts (EA) has announced it is now working on the third Tiberium War title in its long-running Command & Conquer real-time strategy series.
Continuing the epic struggle between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and The Brotherhood of NOD, this third Tiberium release will take the series back to its roots.
“Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars combines fast-paced gameplay with new ways to tell a story in an RTS game,” said Mike Verdu, executive producer at EA Los Angeles (EALA). “We’re building a next generation Command & Conquer game that is true to the spirit of this classic franchise, but is updated with state-of-the-art visuals, added strategic depth, and gameplay innovations that will move the genre forward. I am very excited to be working on this amazing game.”
The game will be set in 2047, when the stakes could not be higher: Tiberium - a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth - is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The GDI, a high-tech alliance of the world’s most advanced nations, is fighting to contain Tiberium, but Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of The Brotherhood of NOD has other plans for Earth. Kane’s secret society turned superpower is bent on using Tiberium to take control and transform humanity into his twisted vision of the future. All-out war rages over Tiberium and the fate of the planet rests in the balance.
Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars is expected to ship next year for Windows-based PCs and, as such, has yet to be rated by either PEGI or USK. For more information check out www.CommandAndConquer.EA.com.
