First ever Tiberium trailer reports for duty

Two-minute trailer from the C&C FPS spin off splashes down

The very first trailer from EA's FPS C&C Tiberium has hit the internet and features two minutes of teasing cinematic.

It's the first slice of media from the game to be served up in 2008. Right at the end of last year we were bombarded by a mass of screenshots and art.

Players step into the shoes of Forward Battle Commander Ricardo Vega and will assemble an assortment of elite squads to combat the global crisis. You'll be armed with plenty of C&C weapons including a transforming personal weapon system, multi-launch homing missiles, capital ship bombardments and tactical ion cannon strikes.

The game aims to blend first-person shooting and tactical squad combat into one, where you control multiple infantry, armour, and air squads. The squads are your most decisive weapon, not the rocket launcher.

Oh, the trailer. Watch it here.
