About This Game

Behold disciples of Nod, for the end is soon upon us. Electronic Arts’ award-winning and best-selling Tiberium saga is coming to a powerful conclusion with Command & Conquer 4, which will introduce a multitude of innovations to the classic fast and fluid Command & Conquer gameplay, while retaining the core compulsions that fans have come to love over the series’ history.

It is the year 2062 and humanity is at the brink of extinction. Tiberium, the mysterious, alien crystalline structure that has infested Earth for decades and served as the primary reason for years of relentless conflict between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod, is close to rendering the planet uninhabitable. Mankind is on the verge of extinction when Kane, Nod’s prophetic leader, emerges from seclusion to deliver GDI the message that he has developed a system that could control Tiberium and harness its power. But he cannot build this "Tiberium Control Network" without GDI’s cooperation. Thus, the two opposing factions – GDI and Nod – inevitably find themselves in desperation for the same cause: to stop Tiberium from extinguishing mankind.

After 15 years, the network is nearly complete, Tiberium is under strict control and our revitalized, newly terraformed planet is on the cusp of a new age of prosperity and progress. It is then that the world’s citizens begin to seriously ponder why Kane chose to help, and what will he want in return. These questions and more lead to the dramatic final act of the Tiberium saga.

With a multitude of innovative new features to the fast and fluid C&C gameplay, Command & Conquer 4 offers players an entirely new way to play C&C. An all-in-one mobile base, persistent player progression across all game modes that is constantly updated in a real-time online profile, a 3-class system for each of the two factions, co-operative play, and a 5v5 objective-based multiplayer mode that promotes teamwork and social interaction, make Command & Conquer 4 unlike any other C&C experience.

  • The Epic Conclusion of the Saga - Kane returns in the thrilling conclusion to one of gaming’s longest running storylines, told through gritty live-action cinematics. Choose to take on the campaign solo or team up with a friend and play cooperatively!
  • Choose Your Class - Choose from three unique classes from both GDI and Nod, each with its own specialized units and powers, for more strategic and combative options that match your play style of choice! Offense, Defense, or Support classes—which will you pick?
  • Always on the Move - For the first time ever in the C&C series: a massive, mobile, all-in-one base, The Crawler, lets you pack up and move your base with your army for a new layer of strategic depth. Build units as you move across the field, and deploy whenever and wherever you choose!
  • Persistent Player Progression - The more enemy units you destroy, the more experience points you earn to progress your player profile! Level up to unlock new units, powers, and upgrades to make your army more powerful!
  • Team Up and Take the Battle Online - Join your fellow commanders online and tackle your opponents in the biggest C&C multiplayer to date, featuring 5 vs 5 objective-based battles! Choose your favorite class and take online strategy action to the next level as you conquer objectives while pummeling your enemies. The all-new party system lets you move with your party of friends from one online battle to the next.

If you liked Command and Conquer 3 Tiberian wars you will hate this. You can't build bases like you could before and unit count is low. I'd rather play the ones off the PS1

Came back to play this after a while because of fond memories.

Alas, I was confusing it was CnC3: Tiberian Wars which is a far superior game.

Poor storyline, poor gameplay. Aviod.

Can't even play it. The login is not working even though I put in the right password and there's no password reset in the log in menu. This is stupid. At least I only wasted $5 during a sale.

i first played C&C games 8 years and i found that i took alikeing to kane's nod ( mostly from the fact he looks like my father) watching the game do live cut-sceenes rather then what ALL others did with animation. all i found was a game that seem to rip off C&C's looks but game style of starcraft. there is not easy way to say what or how this game made me not like it or even try to play vary far, but i can say that this game has a whole new feel to it. and it isnt a good thing.

A disgrace to the C&C series. Do not buy it! Even if they offer if for a free weekend, the price is too high for its worth. What made this game so crappy? The gameplay, the story, and the idea of taking away the concept of base building and resource gathering. Every fan knows the story of GDI vs NOD. GDI's purpose is to contain the Tiberium and stop NOD from using it as a tool. NOD wants the tiberium to claim it as the next step in human evolution while informing the world that GDI are a bunch of fascists that care for the rich and abandon the sick and poor. BUT C&C4 throws that all away when Kane uses the Tacitus, the item that the 2 factions fought so hard to obtain and unlock the secrets of it, to ally with GDI and destroy the Tiberium that infested the earth. I bought it because i love C&C from the start of playing red alert. After Westwood was gone, it all went down the drain. C&C3 was good, but aliens?! blah! I would have loved to see CABAL come back, but EA made up for it with Kane's Wrath. But this...this is like a giant middle finger to all the C&C fans from EA.

This game (as compared to other C&C games) is extremely restrictive, graphically challenged, with unintuitive controls.

I speak from long experience with C&C franchise: C&C (original), C&C: Red Alert, C&C: Tiberian Sun.

Very UNfun.

Not like the rest of C&C series. Not sure I can even play through this game. Major annoyances for anyone who is a fan of the original C&C games.

The C&C games have really gone downhill ever since Red Alert 2, i have played all of the previous ones and this is by far the worst.

Shocking that this can even be called a Command & Conquer game. I heard about how bad it was, but decided to buy it since it was on sale for $5. It is atrocious. All the base building aspects are gone, instead you are given a "crawler" which you can set up and produce certain units and structures/abilities depending on if you chose offense, defense or support. I only suggest buying this if you hated previous C&C games since this is the complete opposite of past games. I plan on finishing the campaign, on easy to get it done with faster, and to never play it again.

EDIT: You may enjoy the game if you liked World in Conflict's multiplayer aspect. The whole game plays like it, where you are forced to pick a strategy and stick with it. However, it is more limited because in World in Conflict you could still make most units, however in this game you are forced to only make what your strategy allows. There is no overlap at all.

This game is just a grind. You have to work to permanently unlock things that you would generally unlock and upgrade every game in previous installments of the game, so if you play online you're guarenteed to get steamrolled by someone who has played longer.

The game offers different spawn ships that only allow certain units to be built with each and are supposed to follow certain playstyles but ultimately just end up limiting the game and the amount of fun it could have offered.

I love the C&C series, but this game has had some horrible decisions go into it. If you want an RTS, I'd reccomend picking up either C&C Tiberium Wars 3: Kane's Wrath, or C&C Red Alert 3, as both are top notch games from the same series, and infinitely better than this waste of code.
