EA has launched a free-to-play Command & Conquer MMO named Tiberium Alliances in a new move for the franchise that keeps on giving.
This iteration of the brand sees the GDI and Nod factions pitted against each other as they harvest resources (tiberium, anyone?) and build armies.
Players choose GDI or Nod, then play against each other or AI-controlled factions, defending bases and sending out scouts to grab more land.
As it’s browser-based, the game is cross platform, and EA hopes to introduce cloud-saved game data in a few months to make it accessible across web brwosers and movile devices. Ie you’ll be able to jump in and play it, no matter where you are or what tech you have with you.
The game has long been a cult favourite – in fact brand awareness of Command and Conquer is now so high that 52 per cent of gamers are aware of it – likely higher in the PC market.
MMOs sometimes struggle to keep up the pace, but Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances should have a strong fanbase to begin from.
