Command & Conquer To Revisit Red Alert, Tiberium

By Nathan Grayson on September 12th, 2013.

Why, I remember when this place was just fields, far as the eye could see. [explodes]

EA’s free-to-play reimagining of Command & Conquer just keeps on growing. Next year, it’ll slowly but surely roll out a full single-player campaign set in the Generals universe, replete with triumphant returns (or cackling callbacks) from the Global Liberation Army and revamped Chinese and US factions. But how exactly will these missions release? And what lies beyond, after what essentially constitutes Command & Conquer Generals 2 has given up all of its tiny, suicidally obedient ghosts? Victory Games explained in a new video, and let’s just say that they haven’t forgotten the legendary RTS series’ legacy.

Tiberium Goes Bye-Bye

By Alec Meer on September 30th, 2008.

DEAD

I was thinking only the other day that we hadn’t heard anything about that somewhat dreary-looking Command & Conquer FPS for a while, and then I spot news over at Blue’s that EA have unexpectedly put it out of its misery.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end to all work on ‘Tiberium,’ effective immediately”, sez Ea’s Mike Verdu. “The game had fundamental design challenges from the start.”

Given it really wasn’t looking all that stellar (RPS readers at the time of the first footage certainly weren’t terribly taken with it), it’s probably for the best, what with C&C’s populist profile recently being boosted by all that Red Alert 3 boob-mania. The real sad news is that it could affect some folks’ jobs – here’s hoping they’re all moved onto interesting new projects. Below the cut: the trailer and some in-game footage, for old time’s sakes.

Games For 2008: Command & Conquer Tiberium

By Alec Meer on January 29th, 2008.

This is the only screenshot EA have released. It's like the cretins don't even want us to promote their game

It’s not “Command & Conquer: Tiberium”. It’s just “Tiberium.” At least Dwayne ‘ The Rock’ Johnson has the good grace to acknowledge his true heritage in his name. But what’s going on here? Are EA embarrassed by Command & Conquer now? “Don’t mention the Tiberium war…”

The Tiberium Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on January 19th, 2008.

The cinematic trailer for Tiberium has trundled onto the web, revealing BattleStar Galactica wobble-camera, and a transforming gun and helmet. There’s not a great deal to be said about it as we’re still a long way from any gameplay footage, but it’s interesting that the hype is beginning to gear up in this way. We can expect EA to sell this one pretty heavily in the coming months. The question is whether anyone believes it will be any good…


Thanks, Game Trailers!

Incidentally, while thanking Game Trailers, I should point out that their new project, a cheats Wiki called WikiCheats has hit the web. If you’re walkthrough-authoring, or stuck on Mass Effect, then you might want to take a look.

Tiberium: ED-209?

By Jim Rossignol on December 18th, 2007.

EA have released some more details, and the above screenshot of an ED-209*, to announce Tiberium, their squad-based FPS set in the C&C universe.

Chris Plummer, executive producer at EA Los Angeles, said: “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.”

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.

* “Can’t think of a robot design? Then why not try new ED-209! It’s like you don’t even have to try!”
