EA has announced that an open multiplayer beta for its upcoming real-time strategy title Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight has launched.
The beta will give players their first opportunity to try out the newly implemented features that EA believes will revitalise both the popular series and the RTS genre as a whole. Most notably among the game’s new features is a new 5v5 multiplayer mode.
"We could not be more excited to give fans a taste of what’s in store for Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight with the new multiplayer beta,” said Lead Designer, Samuel Bass. “Players can expect the fast-paced strategic RTS action they’ve come to know and love in the Command & Conquer franchise augmented with new gameplay elements that really ratchet up the intensity, especially in our 5v5 multiplayer modes.”
Tiberian Twilight will bring the 15-year-old Command & Conquer franchise’s story to a close.
The beta allows players to test out the new multiplayer mode across four different maps. Any experience accumulated during the course of the beta will be transferred to the user’s profile upon the full game’s release on March 19.
