Command Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight is
the final installment in the Tiberium Saga of the long-running real-time
strategy (RTS) PC game franchise Command Conquer. Centered around the infamous
faction based struggle for, and simultaneous protection from the valuable, but
dangerous energy source known as Tiberium, CC 4 features classic RTS gameplay
based in resource management, unit creation and battlefield strategy. Add to
this new features including 5-on-5 online multiplayer support, a mix of new and
classic units and exciting RPG lite gameplay elements, and you have a worthy
final release in a series that over the years has epitomized the RTS genre.
In the year 2062, humanity found itself on the brink of extinction. Tiberium,
the mysterious, alien crystalline structure that infested Earth for decades and
caused years of relentless conflict between the Global Defense Initiative and
the Brotherhood of Nod, was close to rendering the planet uninhabitable. In the
midst of this crisis, Kane, Nod's prophetic leader, emerged from seclusion to
deliver GDI the message that he had developed a system that could control
Tiberium and harness its power. But he could not build this "Tiberium Control
Network" without GDI's cooperation. Thus, the two opposing factions¿GDI and
Nod¿found themselves in a desperate and unlikely alliance to stop Tiberium from
Now, after 15 years, the network is nearly complete. Tiberium is under strict
control and the revitalized Earth is on the cusp of a new age of prosperity and
progress. It is only now that the world's citizens begin to seriously ponder why
Kane chose to help, and what he will want in return. Kane. GDI. Nod. Tiberium.
How will it end? These questions and more lead to the dramatic final act of the
15-year Tiberium saga in Command Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight.
Command Conquer is a real-time strategy gaming franchise, and Command
Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight is no exception. Players assume color-coated
versions of the GDI or Nod factions and uncover segments of the map, where they
must manage Tiberium and other resources in their possession or that they they
mine or commandeer in the field. Other factions occur in the game, but are not
playable, and different single player campaigns are available to players
depending on which of the two factions are chosen. The energy that Tiberium
crystals possess is used in the manufacture and upgrading of mining and combat
units, weapons and support infrastructure in preparation for impending conflicts
with other players on the same map that are doing the same. Each faction has its
own distinct unit types, both land and air based, which although unique, are
overall more or less balanced against those of opposing faction. In addition,
certain units can be captured on the battlefield and used to supplement your
arsenal. The overarching task though is to combine the right number and type of
units with the right battlefield strategy for the conflict and terrain at hand.
Historically, CC matches have been won by completely eliminating all enemy
units that stand against you. Although there is certainly plenty of this within
Tiberian Twilight, the game also is different in that players need not eliminate
all enemy units, instead capturing control nodes throughout the game and holding
them for a minimum amount of time. Doing so leads to earning enough points to
win the match. Tiberian Twilight also differs from earlier games in the series
with the addition of certain RPG game elements. Players overall orientation
within their chosen faction is class based, with units falling generally in
offensive, defensive or support classes depending on your play style. These
units can be upgraded with experience points, which are gained through success
against enemy units, with more advanced enemy units earning the conquering
player more points, and thus potential unit upgrade opportunity.
