Twisted Insurrection is a critically acclaimed, standalone modification based on the Command & Conquer™ Tiberian Sun™ engine. It features a complete redesign of the original game, set in an alternate “what-if?” timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod were victorious during the first Tiberian War.

Along with the total overhaul of the original game's visuals, sound effects, and packing an all-new original soundtrack (ft. Frank Klepacki), Twisted Insurrection brings you an entirely new arsenal of forces to command in massive single- and multiplayer battles. The game features multiple full-length solo campaigns and co-op missions for GDI, Nod, and the new GloboTech and Forsaken factions. Play over 50 brand new campaign missions and try your hand at challenge modes, re-imagined Tiberian Dawn missions and more. Customize your game experience by choosing from dozens of game modes and options.

The fate of the Earth lies dangerously unknown. Do you have what it takes to drag the shattered Global Defense Initiative out of ruin? Or will you crush all who oppose the will of Kane and his Inner Circle? The choice is yours commander.

Hello everybody, it's been a long time. Nearly two years have passed since the last major release for Twisted Insurrection. The long wait was only made worse by our unintentional lack of communication. In the past few years, our team has slowly grown thinner, leaving us with only a few active but strongly dedicated members. Most other contributors are busy with real life or other projects, so development has been slower than before.

That said, TI is very much still being worked on. It's taken time, but we're finally releasing that you've all been waiting for - version 0.8, or as we like to call it, the Invasion Update.

We hope that this new release is proof of our dedication to TI's continued development. In fact, our plan is to release smaller, more frequent updates from now on. We would also like to keep the public better updated on what is happening with TI's development from now on.

Without further ado, let's have a look at what this version has to offer, shall we?

New features in version 0.8

The complete changelog can be found here, be sure to check it out!

Twisted Insurrection 0.8

Stability Fixes

TI has been known for crashes and connection errors during multiplayer matches, which can be frustrating to anyone trying to play online. Version 0.8 has hundreds of changes and fixes aimed at making the game more stable and allow players to enjoy the game without interruptions. Additionally, these changes have made the next feature viable to implement.

Co-Op Mode

TI now has a fully working Co-Op mode along with a new mission to play! This new mode is intended to have additional missions in the future, including a campaign which will provide more insight into the storyline, in particular, the Forsaken. Special thanks to Rampastring and the DTA mod, who helped immensely in making this happen.

New Buildings, Units, and Terrain Props

Many new assets have been included in the latest build including:

  • Globotech (tech faction) now have their own Refinery, Silos and a new Gun Drone
  • The Forsaken (tech faction) now have their own artillery, the Mistfire
  • Sons of Kane (campaign faction) get both an Attack Buggy and Bike (currently crate goodies)
  • UN (campaign faction) receive a new Light Tank and TOW Humvee
  • Twisted Dawn era Nod gains the Chemical Warrior, both factions get a Recovery Vehicle
  • Infested trees, Blossom trees and tiberium-based megaflora
  • Numerous map props for the upcoming campaign

And more.

Rebalanced Factions

Many units in TI were often unused for standard play due to having a very niche nature or by being too underpowered. Overhauled units include:

  • GDI Siege Trooper
  • GDI Phalanx Railgun
  • Nod Cleaver Drone
  • Nod Hammerhead
  • Nod Stinger Mobile SAM

Just to mention a few.

New Campaign Missions

The TI story is undergoing work to make the storyline fit together better. GDI mission 1 has been updated to a new version in which the UN will play a larger role in GDI's collapse and later subsequent rebirth. Additionally, the Twisted Dawn Missions 1 & 2 have been amalgamated into a larger mission as both missions canonically take place on the same map and are relatively short.

5 New Multiplayer Maps

New Multiplayer Maps Five new multiplayer maps are included in the new version. In addition, many existing maps have received updates.

  • [2] Angel Bay
  • [2] Resurrection
  • [2] Forsaken Canyon
  • [4] Catastrophe Park
  • [8] Fort Sheppard

1 Co-Op Map

  • [2] Operation: Friendly Fire

8 New Music Tracks

0.8 soundtrack includes six new tracks by Swirekster and a guest track by Stringstorm.

  • Pyrotek
  • Bogeyman
  • Incandela
  • No Mercy
  • Lines in the Sand
  • To Shreds
  • Lullaby
  • Lunar Grin

New Bonus Mission

'Operation: Friendly Fire' is a parody mission of the "Raid Area 51 - They can't stop us all!" event, featuring the soundtrack "It's Happening" by Montlygon. Disclaimer: The TI Team by no means encourages the actual event set for September 20th 2019. We strongly discourage any attempts to approach the facility as it is an active airforce base.

All this and more in the latest build.

Project W.I.R.E.S.

Last but certainly not least, we have another present, something quite different. Sivsarcast, a blogger, writer, and an active member in our community, has been developing a grand novel based on the Twisted Insurrection storyline. This novel, titled Project W.I.R.E.S., follows the events of the game's singleplayer campaign, featuring familiar characters and introducing new ones. Here's an excerpt from the intro:

Tiberium. Its emerald glow alluring as it is deadly. Its arrival shook the world to the core, sparking what would be known as the First Tiberium War. The Earth was split between the Global Defense Initiative(GDI), who sought to contain Tiberium, and the Brotherhood of Nod, who embraced Tiberium as their salvation.
Three years of bloodshed have eroded the eagle’s talons, while the scorpions continued to crawl out of the woodwork. The completion of the Orbital Ion Cannon would be the eagle’s saving grace, a tool to end the war. That is, until the unthinkable happened.

Read the novel here

Note: Project W.I.R.E.S. is based on the pre-version 0.8 storyline. Most of the story's events will therefore be either spin-offs or non-canon.

Be sure to also check out Siv's blog, including the popular series Tiberium Tuesdays.

Freaking hell the new update is a blast the AI on hard send wave after wave of aircraft to weaken your ground forces and defense while ground forces finished them off

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Thank you for the hard work!

There's a problem though. 0.8 is unable to launch in my win7 PC.

0.78 can launch smoothly, so I tried another way by updating the 0.78 to 0.8. The updated .exe no longer launch after the update. Any help?

Hey I found a bug, on GDI mission 5 the game will crash before the player reach 40000 credits.

Note: Saving and loading before it happens don't work, the game will crash as soon as you load.

There's another one, infantry somethimes will run wen your order to atack, but they Run without leaving the place.

Mod version: the actual one.

Send a bug report to them in the TI forums. More specifically the "Internal Error" section. I had this bug too, as well as "Mechanical Man" in the Nod campaign

Hey everyone (especially developers)! What do you think of remaking GT into UN and Forsaken into RA Soviets for Twisted Dawn gamemode, as tech factions?
I think white GT buildings and Forsaken Red Alert-style structures would fit UN/Soviets very well.
The only problem would be models for the vehicles.

I wanted to say thank you for an outstanding OST. I listen to it whether I'm relaxing or creating missions/campaigns. It inspires me to create and improve my work. I'm hooked on Prodigal Son, Black Hand and Space Echo at the moment. Keep up the amazing work!

Any update on 0.8? I saw a post from end of 2018 stating it was almost done and ready for holiday, but it's been a bit since then and last mention in comments was April. Sorry I know it's a lot of work to maintain and you really polish your releases, so I'm not being pushy but was just curious! Thanks for a great mod, one of my favorites. Still hoping Globotech becomes a full faction one day :D

Reply Good karma Bad karma+5 votes

The most Polish thing here is music... If you know what I mean.
As for Globotech - they are balanced to be give an edge to whoever gets access to their equipment, moreover, they are present on several maps.
Making them regular faction would require extensive map remaking that takes time and effort, ditto for balancing their units.
And if I remember correctly, they would still be available in Twisted Dawn, but originally there were only two factions, not three, making it inconsistent with Tiberian Dawn, no matter what they'll get replaced with.
To be honest, I think they would make nice UN with their white buildings in TD, as tech faction, of course. Forgotten could be converted to Soviet remains, with that antique tech and RA-style factories. That way Twisted Dawn could get its own tech units.

Ok guys. Hear me quickly out.

Been playing a lot with NOD than GDI lately, as well as checking some of the other TS mods that exist right now. And it made me think of something:

When it comes to providing power to your base, NOD seems to have the advantage on it. I saw this mod The Second Tiberium War and GDI uses the Firestorm Generator as an Ion Reactor. At first I thought: Holy Crap that's a neat idea, because these power plants right now are not the same as the vanilla ones where you have to upgrade them.

Is it possible for an Ion reactor to create energy? And what do you guys think? Can we request that GDI get an advance power plant like that or not in a next update as a new structure to built?

So I have noticed something a little weird, (keep in mind I have not played TI in a while). I was playing with a friend against easy ai to get him into the game and the ai would intentionally attack neutral GloboTech buildings, (sometimes intentionally ignoring enemies just to destroy them). I also noticed that some of our units if they were in range would just start attacking them unless moved outside of range. Once I captured a building friendly units would no longer attack it but it was still a priority for the enemy ai to do so. Is this a bug or intentional?

It's part of a hack so your units will auto-acquire neutral units that are armed, like Visceroids (something they wouldn't do in vanilla TS). However a side effect is that the AI hunts armed neutral units down.

Alright thanks.

A really stunnning mod for the new graphical power alone. What the team had to do to make Tiberian Sun comply with these new effects, I don't even want to know, because it most likely has to involve human sacrifice. Cities look like what was promised before the release of TS by Westwood and the Tiberium lifeforms are as strange and varied as they should have been, even outdoing Firestorm's alien feeling. A few times I thought the units needed more balancing, but overall, every unit feels like it…
