'Command & Conquer: Tiberium Wars' - Third Race Revealed?

by Rainier on Dec. 10, 2006 @ 3:33 p.m. PST

Tiberium, a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth, is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The GDI is fighting to contain Tiberium, but The Brotherhood of NOD has other plans for Earth. Earlier EA hinted at a 3rd race, which has now been identified as an Alien species, attacking Earth to take their part of the Tiberium. You'll be able to command the new race halfway through the campaign mode, although shorter than the other 2 sides (15 missions, compared to 35 for the GDI/NOD).

In 2047, Tiberium has blanketed the Earth, which is now divided into zones based on the level of Tiberium infestation. Pristine Blue Zones represent 20% of the planet’s surface and are the last refuge of the civilized world. Partially habitable Yellow Zones make up 50% of the planet’s surface; most of the world’s population lives in these war-torn and ecologically ravaged areas. The remaining 30% of the planet is uninhabitable, a Tiberium wasteland swept by violent Ion Storms. Red Zones are like the surface of an Alien planet.

The infamous Kane has returned to lead the Brotherhood of Nod in a massive global assault on the Global Defense Initiative and the few remaining Blue zones left on the planet. Only you can stop him. The fate of humanity – and the planet – is in your hands.
