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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 retail May 10th, demo soon


Having already enjoyed its PC debut, Command & Conqer 3: Tiberium Wars finally has a release date on the Xbox 360. C&C3 will arrive for the Xbox 360 on May 10th (not May 8th). Even better, Electronic Arts will release a demo of the game on Marketplace in the coming weeks. In celebration, EA has released a handful of new screen shots as well as the official box art for the game.

Command & Conquer 3 represents EA's second attempt to bring an authentic RTS experience to a home console. Naturally, this is a somewhat difficult process without the aid of a mouse and keyboard. EA's first attempt, Battle for Middle Earth II was decent, though not perfect. Here's hoping that Command & Conquer 3 finally delivers the ultimate RTS experience to console players. Hit the "read" link for new screens.

Anyone plan on picking this up?

C&C3 footage: nothin' but gameplay


We've had a lot of Command & Conquer 3 coverage lately, but so far we haven't seen many videos of pure, unbroken gameplay. Fear not fanboys, for GameVideos has risen to the challenge, delivering over three minutes of unadulterated destruction. Watch as the forces of the GDI, the Brotherhood of NOD, and the Scrin go head to head. With so much happening on screen at once, we can only hope that the 360 version manages to run without a hitch, especially during Live matches. Check out the video and tell us what you think.

C&C3 altered for German consumption


We love it when a violent game is making its way to Germany. Why? Because we inevitably get to type out the name of Germany's ratings board: Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK). Say that three times fast. According to CVG, EA will be altering Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars so that it is suitable for Germany's impressionable youth. It seems the game's suicide bombers will no longer actually commit suicide. Instead, these more risk averse almost-suicide bombers will remove their deadly explosive payload and run away. EA notes that this is only an animation change and that it will not affect the game balance in any way.

This isn't the first game to fall under the USK's ratings hammer. Other 360 titles, including Dead Rising and Gears of War, have been banned from the country outright. Of course, smart gamers know that they can pick up an Austrian copy. At any rate, Command & Conquer 3 for the PC debuts this month, with the 360 version following soon after.

Video: Command and Conquer 3 Vision gameplay


Not long ago, it was revealed that Command & Conquer 3 would feature Vision camera support on the Xbox 360. It was previously believed that players would only be able to see each other before and after a match, but this video shows video chat windows during the match as well. All in all, the video reveals two things. One, Vision cam support is perfect for a game like Command & Conquer. Two, this may be the most annoying feature ever conceived. The video goes out of its way to show us how annoying this feature could be, and we're not exactly sure that's good marketing strategy, but the feature is at least promising.

Also, the video features actual 360 footage, giving us a look at the 360 control interface. It looks essentially like Battle for Middle Earth II, which we were expecting. It does, however, look much faster than BFMEII, which is definitely welcome.

For now, C&C3 for the 360 is saddled with a nebulous spring 2007 release date. Anyone plan on picking it up? Watch the video and tell us what you think (you can also grab the HD version here).
