Electronic Arts has announced a new expansion for its hit Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
real time strategy title with Kane’s Wrath
, featuring an "epic new single player campaign" due to be released on PC and Xbox 360 in Spring 2008.
EA says the new campaign will put players into a new story spanning 20 years -- from the rebirth of the Brotherhood of Nod after the Second Tiberium War through the dramatic events of the Third Tiberium War and beyond.
It also has announced that the game's story will feature new high-definition live action video sequences starring the original Kane, Joe Kucan, and more cast members to be revealed at a later date.
According to the publisher, the game will feature six new sub-factions, as well as new units, structures, and powers to the Global Defense Initiative, Brotherhood of Nod, and Scrin armies.
The game will also feature a "new strategic layer to gameplay" where players establish bases, build customized armies, and attack global enemies on a global scale, then "dive into the frenzied tactical combat where their skills as a commander will make the difference in battle."
The game is slated to ship in Spring of 2008 for both PC and Xbox 360, the latter of which will see a new "radial interface" designed specifically for the console port.
Said EALA VP and executive producer Mike Verdu, "I’m excited that we’re able to go back to the Tiberium universe with Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath
. This expansion has an impressive new single player campaign, a new global strategic layer that adds depth to the familiar Command & Conquer
style gameplay, and several fun, all-new toys that range from versatile combat soldiers to giant armored walkers."
