What is Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is the long awaited sequel to Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. Taking place during the Third Tiberium War, the Brotherhood of Nod, now a superpower with a majority support of the world’s population, launches a major offensive against the Global Defense Initiative, crippling their forces. With Nod looking likely to win this time, GDI commanders rally their troops, trying to restore lost hope.
The story begins in 2047, and the world is in an even worse condition than in Tiberian Sun. The spread of Tiberium continues to the destroy the Earth, and the world has been divided into different zones. 20% of the Earth’s surface is Tiberium-infested and inhospitable “Red Zones”, 50% of the Earth is “Yellow Zones”, areas where Nod is present and where Tiberium hasn’t fully taken hold but is encroaching on the population, and the rest of the Earth is “Blue Zones”, where it is safe to live and where GDI is present. The GDI is still trying to prevent the spread of Tiberium and convert the Yellow Zones to Blue Zones.
In March, Nod fires a nuclear missle at GDI’s orbiting headquarters, the Philadelphia, destroying the fulcrum of GDI’s military power. Since the end of the Second Tiberium War, Nod has built up its military into superpower status, and is now supported by the majority of the world’s population through aid and propaganda. In no shape to handle the Nod offensives led by Black Hand shock troops around the globe, GDI commanders take charge, rallying their demoralized troops, hoping to win a third victory over Nod.
