First Tiberium in-game footage

Gameplay lid flipped open on EA's Command & Conquer shooter

The very first in-game footage from EA's Command & Conquer first-person shooter has arrived.

Appearing in a video on YouTube, the gameplay footage is interspersed with comments from the game's executive producer, Chris Plummer.

In the game 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.
