Electronics Arts has announced a new compilation of Command & Conquer titles. For $49.99, Command & Conquer Saga includes each game from the First Decade, plus the recent Command & Conquer 3 release. This is $20 less than buying the two separately and a great deal considering C&C3 debuted at the same price in March.
The Command & Conquer franchise celebrated its 12th anniversary in August 2007. The groundbreaking franchise was one of the first to introduce players to the modern RTS genre, has spawned over a dozen PC titles, and ranks in the top 5 best-selling PC franchises of all-time to the NPD Group. Additionally, Command & Conquer Red Alert(TM) 2 and Command & Conquer Generals were the number one best-selling(1) PC RTS titles in 2000 and 2003 respectively. Collectively, the series has sold over 25 million units worldwide to date.
The company has also recently announced it is working on a new science fiction franchise. "Dead Space" is a sci-fi/horror mix scheduled for release on the PS3 and XBox 360 late next year.
Set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of engineer Isaac Clarke -- an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. It is not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare when he learns that the ship's crew has been ravaged by a vicious alien infestation. He must fight through the dead silence and darkness of deep space to stay alive.
