Description

Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath is the first expansion to Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.

The expansion adds a new single player campaign, with Kane in the center, boasting 13 new missions which spread over 20 years: from the rebirth of The Brotherhood Of Nod during the Second Tiberium War, through the Third Tiberium War and beyond.

Among the new additional features are the Global Conquest mode in which the player gets a map of the world with divided territories and has the objective to capture all of them in turns (similar to Risk, or a newer example, Dawn Of War: Soulstorm). Also, the game introduces six new subfactions and additional units to each side.

The Xbox 360 version uses the CommandStick interface from the original game for quick controls. The Global Conquest mode has been replaced with the Kane's Challenge mode. It is a set of skirmished matches picked by Kane with different victory conditions. They include all factions of the game and players choose a faction to defeat other armies while unlocking achievements and twenty new videos where Kane is featured. Skirmish and multiplayer battles are available for up to four players over Xbox Live, with support for the VisionCam and over 50 maps to choose from.

Trivia

Beta Key

Also included in the keep case is a Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 beta key. If the owner registered it before 15 September, 2008 on a special website, they automatically entered the beta queue. EA sorted these queues by country of origin and invited the buyers based on their position in the queue.

German Version

As it was the case with Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, Electronic Arts GmbH released two different versions of the game in Germany. One version is identical to the other international releases and was rated "Not free for minors" by the German rating organisation USK. The other got rated 16+ and is different in several aspects:
  • It only includes the German language version of the game.
  • It doesn't include the Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 beta key.
  • The Atombomb is changed to the Aurorabomb and the Assassins do not blow themselves up.
Installing the uncut German version (rated 18+) of the add-on over the normal German release of Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars will revoke the changes Electronic Arts made to get the 16+ rating for the main game.
