JOE KUCAN TO REPRISE ROLE AS KANE IN UPCOMING
COMMAND & CONQUER 3 TIBERIUM WARS
From an undisclosed Yellow Zone, reports prove that the nefarious leader of the Brotherhood of Nod has in fact returned.
EA Los Angeles (EALA) is thrilled to reveal today that Joe Kucan, the original actor who portrayed the character Kane in Command & Conquer™ (C&C) games over the last decade, is reprising his role as the megalomaniacal leader of the Brotherhood of Nod (Nod) in Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars™ (C&C 3). Kucan will appear in an array of high-definition, live action video sequences that seamlessly tie the game’s epic story together. These full-motion video sequences will also feature an unparalleled, diverse cast and will help bring the story behind the Tiberium Universe to life.
“Kane lives indeed!” said Joe Kucan, the actor who originated the popular villain over a decade ago. “I am looking forward to capturing the imagination of a whole new generation of C&C fans and the series’ avid supporters. EALA has done some amazing work, and I am truly honored to be back in the Brotherhood.”
March, 2047. A massive nuclear fireball explodes high in the night sky, marking the dramatic beginning to the Third Tiberium War and long-awaited return of the most groundbreaking Real-time Strategy franchise (RTS) of all time.
The critically-acclaimed C&C series returns with C&C 3. Settingthe standard for the future of RTS gaming once more, C&C 3 takes you back to where it all began—the Tiberium Universe.
In 2047, Tiberium has blanketed the Earth, which is now divided into zones based on the level of Tiberium infestation. Pristine Blue Zones represent 20% of the planet’s surface and are the last refuge of the civilized world. Partially habitable Yellow Zones make up 50% of the planet’s surface; most of the world’s population lives in these war-torn and ecologically ravaged areas. The remaining 30% of the planet is uninhabitable, a Tiberium wasteland swept by violent Ion Storms. Red Zones are like the surface of an Alien planet.
The infamous Kane has returned to lead the Brotherhood of Nod in a massive global assault on the Global Defense Initiative and the few remaining Blue Zones left on the planet. Only you can stop him. The fate of humanity – and the planet – is in your hands.
Featuring state-of-the-art, next-generation graphics, an epic story with live action, full-motion video sequences, and the classic fast-paced C&C style of play, C&C 3 sets the standard for the single player RTS experience. When you decide to test your skills online, a suite of truly innovative features, such as the ability to transform online battles into a spectator sport, unfold.
Currently in development at EALA, C&C 3 will ship in 2007 for Windows PC. This product is not yet rated by the ESRB. For more information about C&C 3 or the C&C series, please visit the official site at www.CommandAndConquer.com.
