Command and Conquer 3: The Forgotten aims to bring back and tell the story of a fascinating faction. The Forgotten, featured in Tiberian Sun and Firestorm, are an ever-growing group of individuals afflicted with Tiberium-based illnesses. Detested, marginalized, and oppressed by the three superpowers, The Forgotten have begun to rally against GDI, Nod, and the Scrin. Since their story is not featured in C&C 3, the mod aims to tell it in a compelling fashion, through a deep singleplayer campaign, unique faction composition, and engaging gameplay. The Forgotten is also the only mod to feature high-definition Full Motion Videos, just like real C&C games, that advance the story.
C&C 3: The Forgotten has released ten new images, five showing off new units, four showing off a mission's setting, and one a secret story promo picture. In addition, the mod team leader, Blbpaws, sits down for exclusive interview with CNCDen on the mod and how it aims to bring its unique story and faction to life. The mod is for C&C 3 and aims to add and tell the story of a fourth side, The Forgotten, a group of Tiberium-infected mutants featured in previous C&C games.

We have a lot of new items to show off to you, as promised (though our big item is still just a bit off). First up is an interview I did with Lion, a veteran webmaster at CNCDen. Here's a snippet:
Lion: I understand this mod will include a single player campaign in order to tell the story of The Forgotten, and I'm looking forward to the campaign. I have no doubt it's quite a difficult undertaking involving much intense work. How far along are you in the development of the single player campaign, and how many missions do you have planned?
Blbpaws: It's absolutely a tremendous challenge, but it's one we wanted to undertake and one we're meeting. We have five very long missions planned, each with three difficulty levels. We have maps pretty nearly done for two of them, and a draft started for two more. Scripting is about 75% done for one mission, 60% for another, and maybe 10% for a third. The missions were the last thing to be developed, so they lag behind the rest of the mod, but we're doing well. CaptNeo and Pheonix are doing a good job in crafting the missions, and Nick, Rick, Alex, Steve, and Matt are almost done with their work in making the story truly come to life within them.
You can read the full piece here. Next up are four new promo images showcasing a newly-revealed unit, the Impact Drone. You can see two here, and two more in our media section. The Impact Drone is a remote-controlled kamikaze vehicle that smashes into enemy positions the most deadly way: head-on, and at full speed.
Then there is a mystery image from our story. As we've said before, we're telling a story in a very unique way. We can't tell you what this image is, how we use it, or why it matters, but it's central to the campaign, and the world that you, as the player, will help bring about.
