C&C4: Tiberian Twilight falls in March

Final installment of the Tiberium saga heading to PC on March 16 in North America, March 19 in Europe; preorder incentives include exclusive bonus mission and early access to beta program.

by

Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight was one of EA's worst-kept secrets this year, after being preemptively announced via a consumer survey and EA's own twitter feed. This time, however, news of the game's release date has officially come from an EA press release, and real-time strategy fans who have been awaiting a sequel to 2007's Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars won't have to wait much longer.

Coming to a PC near you this March.

Today, EA has announced that Command & Conquer 4 will be hitting store shelves on March 16 in North America and March 19 in Europe. The publisher has also announced the first preorder incentives for the game, available to North American customers who preorder from the EA Store, GameStop, or Direct 2 Drive. Eager fans can expect to receive a copy of the game's official soundtrack and an exclusive bonus mission, on top of which orders from Direct 2 Drive or the EA Store get early access to the upcoming beta program. GameSpot Total Access subscribers can also apply for the beta by registering here.

Command & Conquer 4 features different campaigns for the Global Defence Initiative and Brotherhood of Nod factions, with each faction playable in solo or cooperative modes. The game will also have a five-versus-five, objective-based online multiplayer mode.

@snowdawn: Yeah it's not gonna be the same as before and therefore it's gonna be bad right? Great use of logic there. Try the beta first, so you can have a REAL opinion. And also suggest to EA what could be changed. Then you can at least say you tried.

Very disappointed with this cnc4 . no base , no economy like cnc1 , 2 and 3. its not even an RTS with out tiberium harvesting units. i just hope they will change game and put an economy on it. will make this game epic if they listen to us gamers. if not this game and EA FAILS HARD

Just an FYI to everyone this game does not have hardly anything in common with Previous CnC games like CnC3. This game is like Ground Control 2 with CnC Storyline. There is no Economy and no base building.

Hope they don't strip units and tech like they did with Red Alert 3.

@Mcgnnis1 C&C3 is on console, the 360. It is an older title so it may be a little hard to find. I don't think C&C4 will be on console.

If everything goes to plan...Supreme commander 2 and CnC4 will be released in the same month. I can tell it's going to be a bloodbath.

Im really looking forward to this game, im a fan of the C&C games, and C&C3 was a great game and I hope this will be as good if not better.

would EA bring C&C 4 to consoles this time? i don't have a good pc to play and i still so badly want to play C&C 3 Tiberium wars

EA is easy to hate, but I can't wait for C&C4. They haven't handled the series superbly but at the same time I can't say its a train wreck. I think that the westwood fanboys need to move on, westwood will never come back, and if it did it would never reach its former glory. That said, I have not been disappointed with any command and conquer installments.

Command and conquer used to be a waymaker back in the good old days(C&C1). Now its either stagnant or steals concepts from other strategies. At least the cinematics are somewhat fun.

Hope this one keeps up with C@C3. Shame they got rid of the Scrin faction. Just something a little different.

I was so bummed to hear that EA LA decided to forgo the console development with C&C4. They did such a good job for Red Alert 3!

So whatever happened to that alien faction, guess they scrapped that idea, that or they just aren't playable

No mention of the entire team being fired once the game is completed? I had to listen to a fellow yesterday on the team and tell him to stay optimistic. This may be the last Command & Conquer game for a while now.

Finally! A Command & Conquer exclusive to the PC. The console versions of the previous game were terrible; Bad controls, low graphics and less amount of replay value. The last game i remember that was exclusive was Command & Conquer Generals. But wow i think this is amazing as its staying on the original platform like it did before. It is meant to be played on PC. Brings back memories of Red Alert 1 on Windows 95 :)
