Gamespot heeft een preview van Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun in elkaar gepleurd. Hier een stukkie over het verhaaltje:
Tiberian Sun starts roughly 15 years after the end of the first Command & Conquer game, in a world where Tiberium has managed to spread its tendrils across most of the Earth's temperate zones, leaving only the deserts and tundra untouched. But Tiberium's unchecked infestation is more than just an annoyance. At the start of Command & Conquer, the GDI had no idea that the mysterious spaceborne crystal-like mineral had a lethal side effect: All living creatures undergo drastic mutations when exposed to Tiberium for prolonged periods of time. Most creatures don't survive the brutal transformations.
The GDI now must evacuate people from Tiberium infested areas.
Once the GDI realizes the true nature of Tiberium, they are forced to evacuate entire populations from infested areas. Meanwhile, Kane, thought to have been killed some 15 years earlier, is busy reuniting the factionalized Brotherhood, whose members have fled to subterranean bases and are carrying out Tiberium mutation experiments on humans.
It's from these mutations that Tiberian Sun introduces the Forgotten, a group of mercenaries whose combat skills have been enhanced through Tiberium exposure. Unlike the majority of people who've come into contact with the mineral, the Forgotten have mysteriously managed to survive. Aware of the NOD's malignant intentions and wary of the GDI's questionable methods of selecting who gets evacuated and who gets left behind, the Forgotten are a neutral entity as the game begins.
In de preview staat trouwens dat de target release deze zomer is. Zal me niet verbazen als ook die datum weer uitgesteld gaat worden [zucht]...
