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.
- Blighted Tower (2-Player Map)
This 2 player Tournament Map is perfect for quick encounters. Holding the middle ground is key on this map, as it contains two extra Tiberium fields and perfect artillery positioning against the enemy base. For those sneaky players though, the outside provides excellent flanking opportunities.
- Gunship Gauntlet (2-Player Map)
This 2 player map gets rolling fast as starting locations come with lucrative blue Tiberium fields. With entrances to the bases limited, Gunship Gauntlet caters to aircraft and long range weaponry. If your starting field runs dry, expand to the green Tiberium fields in the top right, or secure the extra blue field in the lower left.
- Ruined River (2-Player Map)
The 2 player map of Ruined River is a favorite among defensive players. The crystallized ravine throughout this map makes ground assaults difficult, resulting in heavy uses of aircraft and support powers. Capture the Tiberium Spike in the lower right for extra economy, or secure the Gun Platform on the middle island for a strategic advantage.
- Craters of Camden (4-Player Map)
Set amongst London’s smoking remains, resources are few and far between on Craters of Camden, forcing players to be frugal with their spending. Players must struggle for control of the single Blue Tiberium expansion field, resulting in a match more focused on precision strikes than mass unit spam.
