New Expansion Pack Revealed for Award-winning Title
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 15, 2007--In the name of Kane!
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that the Command &
Conquer(TM) series continues to thrive with Command & Conquer(TM) 3:
Kane's Wrath. As the expansion pack to the critically-acclaimed and
fan favorite, Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars(TM), this Real-time
Strategy (RTS) game returns to the Tiberium universe with Kane at the
center of an epic new single player campaign.
"The reaction to Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars has been
tremendous. Fans and critics alike appreciated the combination of
fast, fluid, and fun RTS game play with a deep story and the classic
full-motion video sequences that are a hallmark of the Command &
Conquer series," said Mike Verdu, VP and Executive Producer at EA Los
Angeles (EALA). "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."
The single player campaign will allow players to experience a new
story that spans 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. The story is told through a new set of
high-definition live action video sequences starring a celebrity cast.
Joe Kucan, the original actor who portrayed the character Kane in
Command & Conquer games over the last decade, will reprise his role as
the megalomaniacal leader of the Brotherhood of Nod. Other details of
the cast have yet to be announced.
Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath also features a new strategic
layer to gameplay that allows players to establish bases, build
customized armies, and attack their enemies on a global scale -- and
then dive into the frenzied tactical combat where their skills as a
commander will make the difference in battle. The game introduces six
new sub-factions and a wealth of new units, structures, and powers to
the armies of the Global Defense Initiative, the Brotherhood of Nod,
and the enigmatic alien Scrin.
The Xbox 360(TM) version of Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath will
debut a revolutionary new radial interface designed specifically for
console gamers. Taking RTS controls to a whole new level, players will
utilize the command stick to build, deploy, and attack.
Developed at EALA, Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath will ship in
Spring 2008 for Windows PC and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment
system. This product is not yet rated by the ESRB. For more
