Command & Conquer is one of the longest-running video game franchises, starting off as a real-time strategy game and working in elements of first-person shooters. Now, after a public beta launched in February, Command & Conquer 4; Tiberian Twilight is now available for PC at retailers, priced at $49.99—and, if you’re new to the http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/command-conquer-4-tiberian-twilight-enters-multiplayer-beta/ universe, Command & Conquer 2: Tiberian Sun and its Firestorm expansion pack are both available as free downloads.
“For the last decade and a half, fans have followed the twists and turns in the Command & Conquer fiction. Now, they will finally get answers about the intense battle between the GDI and NOD as the epic Tiberium saga comes to a stunning conclusion,” said lead designer Samuel Bass, in a statement. “We can’t wait for players to experience the grand finale that’s been fifteen years in the making.”
Command & Conquer 4 combines the classic strategy game elements of the franchise with more intense battles and competitive multiplayer play, along with new missions that get streamed directly into the game. Command & Conquer 4 also introduces new class-based systems and 5v5 multiplayer modes, in addition to single-player and co-op play modes.
Even though Command & Conquer 4 is supposed to be the end of the story we wonder whether any franchise that’s spawned eight major games, about a dozen expansion packs, and over 30 million units in sales really be concluded so easily—as long as customers are willing to buy it, we expect to hear rumblings from the Command & Conquer franchise for some time to come.
