“We could not be more excited to give fans a taste of what’s in store for Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight with the new multiplayer beta,” said lead designer Samuel Bass. “Players can expect the fast-paced strategic RTS action they’ve come to know and love in the Command & Conquer franchise augmented with new gameplay elements that really ratchet up the intensity, especially in our 5v5 multiplayer modes.”

The beta features four maps, including the new “Afflicted Arena,” a former Polynesian paradise transformed into a military base. Command & Conquer 4 promises to provide players with a deep strategic gameplay experience as they engage in battles between the GDI (the Global Defense Initiative) and the Brotherhood of Nod, with its bizarro mystery leader Kane. The game will feature solo, co-op, and five-on-five multiplayer modes; experience earned while playing the beta can be transitioned to the full game when it’s released.
