Command and Conquer 3 – Tiberium Wars is an RTS game first released in 2007. The game is set in 2047 – the year of the Third Tiberium War and begins with the Brotherhood of Nod breaking 17 years of “cold war” with the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) by launching a nuclear missile at the orbiting command station of the GDI. This event forced the GDI to rally their troops and battle against the Nods. As the two starts a war, a new faction – the Scrin – suddenly appears. The three factions represent the three campaigns available in the game.
The game can be played in either the single player or multiplayer mode. In the single player mode, players may choose between the original two factions – GDI or Nods. The Scrin campaign becomes playable after completing the first two campaigns. There are 38 missions in the game scattered within the three campaigns. Each mission has several main objectives and bonus objectives. The player’s goal is to complete these objectives in order to end the mission. The multiplayer mode can be played over LAN or the Internet. VoIP is featured in broadband-based multiplayer mode. Players may also choose to play in the skirmish mode – the game’s sandbox mode. In this mode, players select the factions and teams to fight with and the goal is to destroy the enemy’s base.
