C&C4 - Unnamed series finale due in 2010, the conclusion of the C&C Tiberium line

I know a lot of people here are really into the C&C series, so I thought I'd note this. There's two debut images, one of them a screenshot, but I'd have to download then upload them again if I were to attach them, so I won't.

Quote:
This is indeed the final chapter in the story arc that began in 1995; bringing closure to the story of GDI, Nod, and most importantly, Kane--who he is, what he wants, and why. Don't expect veiled references to ascension followed by an enigmatic fade to white at the end of this one! We're drawing story elements from every game in the series and weaving them together in a manner that will hopefully conclude this epic tale in a manner that will be satisfying to our hardcore fans and new players alike.

As such, our storyline begins in 2062, 15 years after Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and the Temple Prime incident that led to the Scrin alien invasion and Kane's "death." In the ensuing years, Tiberium entered its next evolutionary state, rapidly expanding across the Earth and rendering our home world all but uninhabitable; the very fate of the human race hangs in the balance. Just as this sense of impending apocalypse reaches its apex, the always-enigmatic Kane resurfaces and heads straight for GDI headquarters.


Highlights from the Gamespot article:
Quote:
we are developing Command & Conquer 4 exclusively for the PC

the conclusion of the Tiberium saga is not the end of the Tiberium Universe as a whole

We've subdivided each of our factions into three upgradable classes. Each class--outside of a few standard units, such as the engineer--consists of an entirely distinct set of units, structures, powers, and upgrades; the equivalent of a full RTS faction

As a nice side effect, since C&C4 requires players to be online all the time in order to prevent cheating, we'll be shipping without any form of DRM...Rather than construct a series of structures to build and modify your army--as you would have in previous C&C titles--everything you can create, be it unit, structure, power, or upgrade, comes from your Crawler.

CNC took a nose dive when EA liquidated Westwood Studios back in 2003. After that it was nothing other that typical EA franchised trash. Generals/ZH was about the only thing they managed to get semi right, everything since, well, less said the better. Congrats EA on murdering another great development studio and a much loved title.

I hope this one is good as some of the previous ones. One of the few game series I have enjoyed.
