News: Command & Conquer-based shooter coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
EA has officially announced Tiberium, a first person squad-based shooter, for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. According to EA, the game has already been in development at EA LA for over two years and it is currently scheduled to ship during the Fall of 2008.
Tiberium will be set eleven years after the events of Command & Conquer 3. Players will control Commander Ricardo Vega and his squad in a battle against a hostile invading force:
For eleven years, an alien tower has stood dormant, looming like an unholy mountain over a wasteland once known as the Mediterranean Sea. The tower was thought to be a relic of the Third Tiberium War; a devastating war fought for control over Tiberium crystal. It is not a relic. It is not dormant. Deep within the tower, plans are in motion for an alien invasion. This is where the Tiberium adventure begins.
Players will also have a wide arsenal of weaponry at their command (a transforming personal weapon system, multi-launch homing missiles, capital ship bombardments and tactical ion cannon strikes) in both single-player and online multiplayer battles.
We'll have more on Tiberium soon.
