Video: Command & Conquer 3 Kane's Wrath trailer

Announced last month, the first trailer for the Command & Conquer 3 expansion Kane's Wrath has hit the intertubes. The expansion will include new radial menus along with new units, upgrades, and abilities for the various factions in the game. It also includes a brand new game type called "Global Domination" that has been described as a variation on Risk. If the trailer is anything to go by, the expansion will also feature plenty of cut scenes with our favorite villain, Kane. Remember though, the expansion isn't out until next year, so you'd better find some other way to satisfy your cravings for bald villains in the meantime.

C&C3 expansion includes new radial menus


The first episode of C&C TV Battlecast Primetime is now online. While we haven't gathered the strength required to actually watch the episode, Joystiq has gone to the trouble of extracting the bits most important to us. Namely, an expansion for both the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Command & Conquer 3 is on the way. Entitled Kane's Wrath, the expansion deals with the villain's ascent back to power after the second Tiberium War. The expansion is played through what's called "Global Domination," which plays out something like a game of Risk. The expansion also includes new units, upgrades, and powers for each faction in the game. Brand new to the Xbox 360 version are radial menus, which will presumably make building and upgrading with a controller a little easier. Don't get too excited though, the expansion isn't due until 2008.

EA unveils C&C TV Battlecast Primetime


You may recall an announcement two weeks ago that Command & Conquer 3 would be "revolutionized" this month. Well, EA has officially unveiled this revolutionary idea, which they are calling C&C TV Battlecast Primetime. So, what the hell is it? From the looks of it in the video above, Battlecast Primetime is essentially SportsCenter for C&C fans. The program will be shown on the official C&C3 website starting August 14th at 12:01AM PST. The teaser video promises dev interviews, and action from C&C3 matches. We're not sure if we'd call it revolutionary, but it is a neat idea. It will be interesting to see what effect it has on the C&C3 community.

C&C 3 to be "revolutionized" soon


Our buddies over at Gamertag Radio received an interesting email today. It's contents can be summarized in the image above. Yes, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars will be revolutionized on August 7. What the hell does that mean? We have no earthly idea (and no unearthly idea for that matter). Gamertag Radio is stumped, too. All we do know is that whatever it is, you can uncover more info on August 7 at the official C&C3 website. We do, however, have some concrete details on the upcoming patch for C&C3. The patch is set to fix three major exploits in the game and should be available "soon." Alright, so maybe it's not concrete per se, but it's better than nothing, right?

Sneak a peek at C&C3 map pack 1 on XBLM


Perhaps you find yourself in the unenviable position of wanting the new Command & Conquer 3 maps but not knowing if they're worth the money. Lucky for you, EA has released a free video on Xbox Live Marketplace detailing all of the new maps. The video is narrated by one of C&C3's developers, who gives you the scoop on each map, noting where the tiberium is and where most of the action will take place. Each map gets a fairly thorough overview, so the video should serve as a decent way to gauge whether or not the maps are worth 500 MS points.

Have you downloaded the maps yet? What do you think?

C&C 3 multiplayer maps ready for download

Ready for download off the Marketplace is some new Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars content including a free multiplayer map. Available for 500 Microsoft points is Map Pack 1 which consists of five new maps including Black's Bigger Battle, Tiber River Valley, Frontier Fracas, Tiberium Gardens III, and Tournament Desert Redux. And, as promised, there is a separate free map download available called Ground Zero, which is set on a meteor impact site and is perfect for 1v1 battles. New maps, oh the joy!

You can get more details on the new content if you check out IGN's interview with EA designer Greg Black as they discuss the new maps and what C&C 3's future holds. Run along now, new map downloads await.

Win Command & Conquer 3 from Gamertag Radio


In celebration of their upcoming 100th episode, Gamertag Radio is giving away 5 copies of Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. Command & Conquer 3 is already a decent RTS game, and we imagine it's even better when it's free. For your chance to win, head over to Gamertag Radio and read the rules for entry (hint: it's super easy). While you're at it, you might as well enter into their mystery giveaway as well. What are they giving away? How the hell should we know? It's a mystery, silly!

C&C3 raises Kane on Marketplace


Still on the fence about picking up Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars? Maybe some cheesy into-the-camera monologues will change your mind. The NOD characters trailer is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace, featuring everyone's favorite fanatical warlord, Kane. You'll also get a brief look at the other main characters in the NOD campaign, including other aggressively named characters like Kilian Qatar. On the other hand, if evil doesn't do it for you, maybe you'd rather check out the GDI (read: "the good guys") campaign intro. You can find it after the break.

IGN Hands on with Command & Conquer 3


IGN recently posted some fresh hands-on impressions of the Xbox 360 version of Command & Conquer 3. We dissected the demo ourselves not long ago, but IGN gives out fresh details concerning the campaign mode. In particular, IGN notes that the computer AI becomes very difficult in later levels. Part of the reason for this is that computers don't have to contend with C&C3's complex control scheme. In other words, AI can manage, build, and direct units much more efficiently than a human. Adding insult to injury, the game lacks a simple restart option for campaign missions. So, if you find yourself without hope of victory, the only way to restart is to exit the game entirely and reload your most recent save. As IGN notes, it's not a deal breaker, but it can become tedious after multiple losses.

Thankfully, multiplayer removes many of these issues, as human opponents must overcome the same control scheme. In the end, IGN walked away impressed with Command & Conquer 3. So far, they've enjoyed the campaign -- difficult though it may be -- and the numerous online options (including more game types than the PC version). Hit the "read" link for IGN's full impressions.

Command & Conquer 3 finally arrives next week. Will it live up to its promise? We'll have to wait and see.

Command & Conquer 3: the documentary?


It's becoming common practice for developers and publishers to document the creative process behind creating videogames. Command & Conquer presents an interesting take on game design, using real actors instead of digital ones to tall its story. There is a new documentary describing the casting and filming process for Command & Conquer 3 available on Xbox Live Marketplace (also handily embedded at the top of this post). Of course, it also has geekily satisfying doses of Michael "Sam Fisher" Ironside and Billy Dee "Lando Calrissian" Williams. Check out the documentary and tell us what you think.

Do you like C&C's use of real actors, or do you prefer digital actors?

X3F hands on: Command and Conquer 3


You may have heard that we had a tough time getting our hands on the Command & Conquer 3 demo last week. Saints be praised, we finally managed to grab the demo this morning. We spent a few hours playing the game and coming to grips with the controls. We also spent about 20 minutes getting owned on Xbox Live. So, is it any good? The short answer is yes. The long answer is after the break.

C&C3 demo commands attention


We fired up our trusty 360 this morning, as we are required to do under contract, and were pleased to see that the Command & Conquer 3 demo has gone live. Originally promised to arrive yesterday, we were left with nothing. Thankfully, the demo has cleared whatever hurdle that stood before it and is now just waiting to be downloaded. Tantalizingly sized at 1GB exactly, it just dares you grab it. So, what are you waiting for? Go get it. We'll post our impressions of the demo later today.

Anybody manage to get any play time already?

[Thanks to everyone that tipped us off]

Fanboys am cry: no C&C3 demo in sight

Despite yesterday's reports that a Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars demo was set to drop today, it remains unseen. The demo was unofficially announced via a forum post by an Electronic Arts employee. Either the employee was misinformed or the demo is still clearing certification hurdles at Microsoft. Of course, there are still many hours left in the day for the demo to drop, but as most demos hit in the morning, we're less than optimistic.

Rest assured, we'll let you know when it's live.

C&C3 conquers XBLM tomorrow


According to a moderator post on the Command & Conquer 3 forums, the anticipated demo of the game will arrive on Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow. Finally, RTS fans will have a chance to test out the revised console control scheme originally developed for Battle for Middle Earth II. Only this time, instead of pitting orcs against elves, it will be NOD versus GDI. There are also gamer pics, 2 new trailers, and themes available for download right now. Get 'em while they're hot. Should you enjoy the demo, the retail version of C&C 3 hits store shelves May 10th.

[Thanks, lord hobo]

Command respect, conquer C&C3 achievements


Half the fun of playing games on the Xbox 360 is unlocking achievements. Hell, just saying the word achievement feels pretty good. Try it: "achieeeeevement." Feels good, doesn't it? Because we all love achievements so much, we bring you the full achievement list for Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, which arrives next month. The list comes to us courtesy of Achieve360Points and it's quite a list. It's refreshing to see that the bulk of the achievements are located in the single player campaign, as many games reserve the big points for multiplayer. Hopefully, this means everyone will be well versed in the game when they finally jump over to multiplayer. Of course, there are a handful of multiplayer achievements as well, including plenty of shame achievements worth 0 points. For example, lose a game to someone ranked 20 places below you and you'll net the "Losing Face" achievement. Hit the "read" link to see all 22 achievements.

A demo of C&C3 should hit marketplace within the next few weeks.
