C&C3 expansion info

Quote:
Electronic Arts Inc. today announced that Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath, the expansion pack to the critically-acclaimed and fan favorite, Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, will feature Natasha Henstridge (Species trilogy) and Carl Lumbly (‘Alias’) in its all-new, high-definition, live action video sequences. Henstridge and Lumbly will be joined by veteran Command & Conquer actor Joe Kucan, who originated the role of Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of the Brotherhood of Nod. All three actors are at the epicentre of the Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath story which will span 20 years – from the rebirth of the Brotherhood after the Second Tiberium War through the dramatic events of the Third Tiberium War and beyond.
“Natasha and Carl are a perfect fit for the live-action video sequences that will bring our epic story to life,” said Mike Verdu, General Manager of EALA and Executive Producer on Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath. “We had great success with the cast and story for Command & Conquer 3, and I’m very excited to be working with such talented actors on the expansion pack. We’re doing something really unique with the campaign this time around – and I think fans will be thrilled to see how the story unfolds.”

Live action cinematics have become one of the hallmarks of the Command & Conquer series dating back to the original Command & Conquer in 1995. In addition to the trademark live action videos and multi-decade campaign, Kane’s Wrath introduces six new sub-factions and a wealth of new units, structures, and powers to the armies of the Global Defense Initiative, the Brotherhood of Nod, and the enigmatic alien Scrin.

Developed at EALA, Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath will ship in Spring 2008 for Windows PC and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system.

Robokane. Live-Action scenes will still suck.

I like Michael Ironside but geez.. EA need to hire some liveaction directors and get the actors not to read off cue cards (that's what it seemed like anyhow) in C&C3.

Thats how the live action scenes are supposed to be. They're awesome because of this.

i don't know why everyone hates on the live action sequences of c&c3. They're pretty decent imo. it's like ppl think that you can't have live action in a videogame...

Its meant to be done out the eyes of the character you're playing. They cant do dramatic multiple camera angles because of this reason.

Any film no matter what actor or script will look a little dodgy with just 1 camera. But thats how the story and game series is so thats what we're given. I wouldnt want them to change it ever.
