EA Goes Tiberium!
Electronic Arts have today announced that their epic title – Tiberium will be making its way on to Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3 – Fall 2008.
Chris Plummer, Executive Producer at EA Los Angeles commented;
“Tiberium is our ‘One Ring’, our ‘Force’. It is the connective tissue that defines this universe and tears it apart. After two years of pre-production, it is exciting to finally reveal this game and its rich fiction to the world. We’ve put a lot of effort into evolving the tactical shooter experience by taking core gameplay compulsions like commanding, choice and dominating your enemies and delivering them in first-person. Some of the weapons and mechanics are truly innovative for a first-person game. We’re very proud to be part of a project that has the potential to really make a mark on the cannon of sci-fi fantasy fiction.”
Mike Verdu, VP and General Manager at EA Los Angeles added;
“EALA has a long history of developing ground breaking real-time strategy games with the Command & Conquer series. That series also originally introduced the Tiberium universe to gamers worldwide. Now, we are growing Tiberium from a simple backdrop to a fully realized universe with its own unique, hybrid squad-based shooter gameplay. This is the birth of a new franchise — we couldn’t be more excited.”
Currently in development by EA’s Los Angeles Studio ‘Tiberium’ will take gamers on an epic roller-coaster ride, for Eleven Years a tower has stood in the baron wastes, ever since the great Third Tiberium War which saw many perish for control of the Tiberium Crystal, the tower thought dormant has a dark and devastating secret – an Alien Invasion is imminent.
Its not all doom and gloom though because this is where you come in. You play as Commander Ricardo Vega, armed with an huge array of weapons and equipped with the most experienced soldiers you’ll embark on the biggest fight of your life.
