Command & Conquer: Tiberium Officially Announced

Following our C&C recent story, Electronic Arts today officially announced Tiberium, a squad-based first person shooter set in the Command & Conquer world. Set to ship on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 late next year, Tiberium has you playing as Ricardo Vega, a "Forward Battle Commander." As Vega, you take control of multiple infantry, armor, and air squads as you fend off an alien invasion (and presumably the forces of Nod) in single-player as well as multiplayer modes. Executive producer Chris Plummer of developer EA Los Angeles noted, "After two years of pre-production, it is exciting to finally reveal this game and its rich fiction to the world. We've put a lot of effort into evolving the tactical shooter experience by taking core gameplay compulsions like commanding, choice and dominating your enemies and delivering them in first-person. Some of the weapons and mechanics are truly innovative for a first-person game. We're very proud to be part of a project that has the potential to really make a mark on the canon of sci-fi fantasy fiction."

yea renegade wasn't bad it just was pretty lacking game play wise it was just dull and boring i remember when i got another 256 of ram for my k6 computer to play that game

this is good news tho i wouldn't be surprised to see it turn out bf2/2142 style which wouldn't necessarily be bad ;) EA;);)

This could actually be pretty cool - as long as they copy a lot of elements from Battlefield 2142 (just hope they do a better job - - - you never know when EA is involved).

hope this has loads of cnc vehicles like the apc and mammoth tank the predator tank and the ability to call for airstrikes and call artillery from juggernaut i hope we also get to blow up a Nod warmech that would be cool.

renegade was not a bad game it was average but just didnt have those moments a game should have or the gameplay

if this like ghost recon 2 but also like battlefield then it should be fun i mean the story cant be buggerd up as it should go with the command and conquer storyline
