EA Announces Command and Conquer FPS, “Tiberium”

cclogo1-1.jpgIt’s been over five years since the last first-person shooter set in the Command and Conquer universe, “Renegade,” came out. Now it looks like the famed RTS is heading back into the FPS realm with the upcoming “Tiberium.” You’ll play the leader of a group called “R.A.I.D” (Rapid Assault and Intercept Deployment) against a new enemy, the Scrin. The only two Scrin units announced so far are standard infantry types called “Archons” and little robots with guns called “Shrikes.” The game is said to be “Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter meets Battlefield meets Rainbow Six Vegas,” which I think basically means it’s a squad based shooter with vehicles. The game should be coming out for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. We should find out more when the January issue of Game Informer hits news stands with the full details.

Lol, it sounds great…

Squad based fps that fight some wierd blue alien race, where we will no doubt right against our human enemys.

Also im sure we will get cool suits that can glide or rocket over small hills..

Is it me or does that sound just like Crysis?

Oh god… not again… please let them make a good one rather than the painfully mediocre work of renegade. It would be a shame to see them butcher their beautiful tiberium universe again.

Another human v alien engagement. Oh I can hardly wait. :roll:

Seriously, I want to fight the Nod man to man, tank to tank, Ion Cannon to Hand of Nod.

And Peter, this sounds a bit like Crysis, only in this, you get a squad which does something aside from push the storyline along to the inevitable cliffhanger.

While not exactly a Renegade II many of us hoped for, it is nice to see yet another rumour turned true:
