It's been over three years since EA closed down the real-time strategy factory Westwood Studios, known for creating the seminal Command & Conquer series of RTS games.

As the next-gen step for one of the biggest series ever created, Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is one of the most exciting games of E3 - not just because of the stunning visuals, but because of three little words that are heard at the end of the teaser trailer shown exclusively behind closed doors at the show: "Then they came." Command and Conquer is back, and its bringing company.
Unfortunately, EA is unwilling to detail just who "they" are, no matter how many times we poke them in the
We got a chance to strap ourselves into these massive machines for a little 5-against-5 mech-blasting action, and discovered a new world of adrenaline-fueled delight.
