C&C4 overrunning PCs in 2010

Following two preemptive reveals, Electronic Arts has officially confirmed the final chapter in the Command & Conquer series.

Electronic Arts has finally officially announced Command & Conquer 4, the next and final chapter in the original "Tiberium series" storyline begun in 1995's Command & Conquer. The game's existence was not-so-subtly hinted at in a customer survey in June, then preemptively revealed via a Twitter update yesterday. After declining to comment for weeks, EA is now confirming the features outlined in the survey, including mobile bases, a role-playing-game-like class system, and persistent experience accrual similar to that of massively multiplayer role-playing games.

The first look at the last GDI/Nod showdown.

C&C4 will depict the final fates of the Tiberium series' two factions: the benevolent alliance of the Global Defense Initiative and the evil paramilitaries of the Brotherhood of Nod. It will be set in the year 2062, when Earth becomes so completely covered with the toxic (yet energy-rich) mineral known as Tiberium that the human race is in peril of extinction. In the face of this threat, the longtime enemy factions join forces against a common foe. EA suggests that this uneasy truce will lead to an explanation of the long-term plans set forth by Nod leader Kane in games, such as Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and its expansion, Kane's Wrath.

Command & Conquer 4 will offer two different campaigns for each faction, which can be played solo or in cooperative mode. In addition, the game will have a brand new, five-versus-five, objective-based multiplayer mode for online play. The unrated game will ship sometime in 2010 for the PC, with no other platforms yet announced. C&C3 was also ported to the Xbox 360 and Mac, while C&C: Red Alert 3 made it to the PlayStation 3.

you know what should happen...bring back Westwood Studios so we can see a quality RTS once more. EA just milked this title for all it's worth, held a poll if they can squeeze anything more out of it. Saddest thing I've ever seen a franchise go through.

to be truthful i hope that the consoles dont get this game, then it will give PC owners the chance to gloat for once. but i also hate that they endin the tiberium saga, i hope that they dont end Red Alert as sudden as Tiberium.

@ GarySpot I did wanted that EA came with Renegade 2, to be honest I played Renegade 1, 2 weeks ago and I still got it :D Still an Awesome game! But I really can't believe they put an end to the C&C tiberium series. They are the best RTS games in the whole ****** world. Consider EA plz! ;)

Vrygar777 Posted Jul 10, 2009 4:30 pm PT Yeah I hope this gets a 360 release too. C&C3 was pretty good on the 360, its probably the best RTS as of yet on the 360. Lets pray Microsoft forces a 360 release lol. Yea sure when microsoft releases halo wars or sony releases metal gear solid 4 on pcs.

Found it it's a picture of Kodiak (Orca command 3A) http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Kodiak. wow they're bringing element from C&C tiberium wars, including the walker (Mammoth walker not seen in C&C 3). can't wait for this one!!!

They won't end it if the make enough $$$s. It better have a LAN mode if they want mine.

Hope this new C&C4 will be more challenging. I still think that the original C&C was ridiculously insane and fun (the new missions).

Any sign of the scrin? Also are the mobile bases a last tier unit or do you get one from the start?

good news to be on 2010 . i also hope that it will have three factions or more and a console release on xbox 360

You might be onto something, Esorevik. Those ATAT-looking things are probably a spiffy, upgraded model of the Mammoth Mk2 from the Tiberian Sun days (I guess they would now be called the Mammoth Mk3? Or Mk4? Lolz) The crashed ship in the background might not be the Kodiak, though. It looks a little different from what I remember it looked like in Sun, though I could be wrong.

I hope they deliver an even better game that C&C3. I felt kinda disappointed with Red Alert 3...it is hell as fun and unit design is incredible but it looks way too cartoon like

Esorevik

Is my imagination or the ones in the pic are the Mammoth Mk2 and some Kane's Wrath Titans? Isn't that the C&C Tiberian Sun ship of the GDI commander? The one you have to secure till it's powered up again?

I have high hopes for this game. Ever since I first played Tiberium Dawn when I was still about 4 years old I have loved this Franchise and I want to see the story end in an epic and unforgettable game. I did not but uprising because i did not care much for RA3 but this game I am hoping to buy unless EA screw it up in a way they have as of yet never done,

In respose to agodan, there is no doubt that it will be released for the 360 aswell, Microsoft will see to that, not to sure about the PS3 but it hopfully will seeing that RA3 got a port aswell. I hope they build this one around the Scrin, A full blow invasion from the Scrin since at the end of 3 the Scrin leader or whatever gave the order to mobilize the full fleet. So GDI and NoD forces must work together but Kane has other ideas..., probally wont happen but that would be awsome.

agodan

We want Kane back ! We want PS3 and XBOX 360 versions too. No more aliens, yeah. :-)))))) / i remember : scrins / I hope Red Alert 4 will developed too.

Not a C&C fan, but I hope this stays exclusive to PC, at least for a while. If they are going PC exclusive, they must be going all out or something. I can see it now: recommended specs: quad-core CPU, 4 GB RAM, 1 GB GTX 300 series or 1 GB Radeon 5800 series

From the screenshot the graphics at least look better from Starcraft 2. The graphics of starcraft 2 look a bit like WoW (like anime cartoons).

@ illuminatirexx True, however they started some great series even if they ruined them later as they were companies which they tookover.

If at all this is the last of the Tiberium Universe the ending must be right and not a WTF ending like Kanes Wrath.
