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.
