Games For 2008: Command & Conquer Tiberium

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.”

A bunch of stuff like orbital ion cannon strikes and capital ship bombardments will apparently be included in the game to give it the sense that you’re on that C&C futuristic battlefield.

And I can’t help but feel dreadfully apathetic towards this one, sorry guys.
