Electronic Arts is taking another stab at the FPS market with Command & Conquer. The cover story on the upcoming January issue of Game Informer magazine has word of Command & Conquer: Tiberium, likely in development by EA Los Angeles based on past evidence. You play as Ricardo Vega, a GDI field commander dragged out of retirement to stop the latest Nod master plan. Here are a few of the details:
  • Will ship on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360
  • Set 11 years after the third Tiberium war
  • Squad-based action
  • Squads are called R.A.I.D. (Rapid Assault and Intercept Deployment)

Command & Conquer previously took to the first-person perspective with franchise creator Westwood Studios' Command & Conquer: Renegade, released for PC in 2002 to mixed reception.
