Trivia

Development

Initially, EA Los Angeles made an experimental online-only game called Command & Conquer: Arena, meant for the Asian market. At some point in 2009, Electronic Arts higher-ups ordered to convert it to a mainline game, add a singleplayer campaign and ship it as such. The decision was controversial even within EA Los Angeles, leading certain developers like designer Greg Black to leave the company.

Arena's existence was unknown to the Command & Conquer community until 2010, when Greg Black outed some information on it, certain concept images leaked, and Richard Taylor posted an unreleased but finished CGI trailer for the game.

"Night Moves" pre-order bonus

Customers who pre-ordered Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight got a prequel mission called "Night Moves". Access to the mission was tied to the player's account, but could be played in co-op as long as at least one player had an account with that mission attached to it. Victory Games added the mission to the accounts of all willing players who posted on the official Command & Conquer forums from 2011 until their closure in October 2013.
