Command and Conquer 3 Heading to a 360 Near You

Noting just how successful their previous real-time strategy game Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth II was on the Xbox 360, EA today announced that they are currently developing the newest Command and Conquer for the console as well.

Command and Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars is the latest in a long line of RTS games based in the C&C universe and will be the first one to see a console release in seven years. C&C 3 takes place in the year 2047 where two warring factions are fighting over a self-replicating alien substance known as Tiberium. The Global Defense Initiative wishes to contain its growth while the evil Brotherhood of Nod desires to use it to bend the world as they see fit. C&C 3 will also have a host of celebrities starring in the full video cutscenes including Tricia Helfer, Josh Holloway, Michael Ironside, Billy Dee Williams, Grace Park, and others.

C&C 3 will help expand the RTS genre on the Xbox 360, building off of the foundation laid by the development of The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II. EA is evolving the console controls so that strategy gaming plays and feels native to the platform.

In addition to the announcement, EA released the following screenshots of the upcoming game. Click on each for more detail.
