Fans of the Command and Conquer: Tiberium wars game from EA will be excited at the prospect of a new game EA is teasing for a fall of 2008 release called Tiberium. EA says that Tiberium has been in development for two years and is an entirely new intellectual property. The game has original fiction and combines game genres into hybrid of tactical combat and FPS shooter gameplay. The title will be available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. EA describes the game:

For eleven years, an alien tower has stood dormant, looming like an unholy mountain over a wasteland once known as the Mediterranean Sea. The tower was thought to be a relic of the Third Tiberium War; a devastating war fought for control over Tiberium crystal. It is not a relic. It is not dormant. Deep within the tower, plans are in motion for an alien invasion. This is where the Tiberium adventure begins. Players step into the shoes of Forward Battle Commander Ricardo Vega and will assemble an assortment of elite squads to combat the global crisis. Armed with an intense arsenal of weapons including a transforming personal weapon system, multi-launch homing missiles, capital ship bombardments and tactical ion cannon strikes, Vega will lead the fight from the front lines.

Mike Verdu, VP and General Manager at EA Los Angeles added, "EALA has a long history of developing groundbreaking real-time strategy games with the Command & Conquer series. That series also originally introduced the Tiberium universe to gamers worldwide. Now, we are growing Tiberium from a simple backdrop to a fully realized universe with its own unique, hybrid squad-based shooter gameplay. This is the birth of a new franchise -- we couldn't be more excited."
