March, 2047. A massive nuclear fireball explodes high in the night sky, marking the dramatic beginning to the Third Tiberium War. The infamous Kane has returned to lead the Brotherhood of Nod in a massive global assault on the Global Defense Initiative and the few remaining Blue zones left on the planet. Only you can stop him. The fate of humanity – and the planet – is in your hands.

The omen of death


The Banshee never made the impact that was expected during the 2nd Tiberium war.

Well the dimensional rift has afforded Nod another opportunity, the Nod Banshee is back and this time Kane is determined to get the best out of this potentially fearsome piece of 'alien' technology.
The good news is that Nod's understanding of alien technology has greatly increased since the 2nd Tiberium war, thanks in no small part to the Scrin invasion.

Aircraft signature scan

The first example of this increased understanding is the fact that Nod are better able to utilise the remarkable target/threat scanning capabilities of the Banshee.

Naturally Nod tactical command are using a fraction of the full ability.
Using the target scanner will reveal all relevant aerial targets on the battlefield (through the fog of war) for a limited period of time.

Elite armour

One item that will be ready almost immediately is the armour that the elite guard of Kane had on their Banshees during the 2nd Tiberium war. This armour provides a nice boost in resistance against all damage types, and is available to all Banshee squadron commanders.

Transpulse plasma

One forsaken weapon that scientist have 'unlocked' is the Transpulse plasma. Apparently this weapon was used in a gunship type Banshee configuration. The Transpulse plasma can ricochet of larger targets which causes smaller burst of plasma to hit additional targets!

Difficult to capture in a still! The FX are not final!

How did the Scrin manage to get intelligent re-targeting of plasma, based on a fraction of the original burst?  Whatever the facts are, it works, and will soon be available for Nod Banshee pilots to use.

Future upgrades

While Nod scientist have been unable to recreate the Scrin force field technology, they have had limited success in accessing and enabling the locked force field on the Banshee.

Apparently the Scrin are surprised by the lack of effectiveness of their force field in solar system based battles.

Nod scientist believe that the ridged inflexibility of Scrin command, which includes their habitual 'locking' of Scrin vehicles and operators, prevents them from learning from battle experience and making the required adjustments. However Nod scientist have found that by allowing a pilot to gain extensive battle data with an unlocked Banshee, eventually a force field will be constructed which takes into account the various damage types experienced during battle! This force field has proved at least twice has effective in comparison to the Scrin capitol ships force fields!

"Now we ready!"

Listen to the wailing! look up and see the omen of impending GDI doom!

"Where's that GDI armour hiding!"

The demo is good, but I advise against running it on Vista. It's neat though, back to the classic DOS days.
Ah, Windows 95 and my Red alert package. FTW my friends. (Oh, and this game is WORTH buying)

Peace.

WOOHOO!!! YEARS I HAVE WAITED FOR THIS!

Generals and Red alert 2 are an embarrassment to the C&C series, any C&C fan from the DOS days will understand why! I honestly thought the original C&C was DEAD because of them! This game should have been what generals should have been - THE RETURN OF COMMAND & CONQUER!!! 10 out 10!

Well, what I can say - I've just been playing the demo.. First thing I realised that this was going to be interesting was the start of the main menu music, if only 5 seconds that brings back instant memories of this series definitive soul that once drove it into what it is remembered for today!

Cannot wait for this one!!

The hardcore gamers of the original Command & Conquer series especially are in for quite a treat, I think!

you dont need the game yet, if you notice, the only things that people have done are the models and skins, they're done on seperate programs that you buy or download. they havent actually got any in-game. its a good idea because they can get the mods set up early ehen the game comes out, they already have the models out the way, all they then have to do is program the AI and code it, with a few tweaks. and its done much faster than if they waited for the game to come out.
